It was definitely the trip of a lifetime! Cayman is so different from the states, and personally I love learning about other countries. It has always fascinated me!

More than half a (m) million of the animals were killed in Bolivia last year for their skins, which fetch high prices in leather markets around the world. In the last four months, 250-thousand cayman skins were illegally exported from Bolivia to Europe and the United States. Bolivia is home to some of the world's most endangered species, but economic hardship has forced rural communities to hunt and trade animals for a living. The cayman is particularly threatened, as illegal trading in cayman skins has become an extremely lucrative industry. Cayman skins produce a very fine leather which is sought after around the world. Most of the skins are smuggled out of the country and illegally sold i...

This helps to identify the individual and offspring and as such gives a window to the population as a whole. Allowing the authorities to monitor the population to keep it healthy. If you want to see this wonderful spectacle why not volunteer with a turtle organisation.

The Cayman Islands are a British Overseas Territory in the western Caribbean Sea. The territory comprises the three islands of Grand Cayman, Cayman Brac and Little Cayman, located south of Cuba and northwest of Jamaica. The Cayman Islands are considered to be part of the geographic Western Caribbean Zone as well as the Greater Antilles. The territory is often considered a major world offshore financial haven for many wealthy individuals The Cayman Islands remained largely uninhabited until the 17th century. While there is no archaeological evidence for an indigenous people on the islands, a variety of settlers from various backgrounds made their home on the islands, including pirates, refugees from the Spanish Inquisition, shipwrecked sailors, and deserters from Oliver Cromwell's army in Jamaica The first recorded permanent inhabitant of the Cayman Islands, Isaac Bodden, was born on Grand Cayman around 1661. He was the grandson of the original settler named Bodden who was probably one of Oliver Cromwell's soldiers at the taking of Jamaica in 1655. England took formal control of the Cayman Islands, along with Jamaica, as a result of the Treaty of Madrid of 1670. Following several unsuccessful attempts at settlement, a permanent English-speaking population in the islands dates from the 1730s. With settlement, after the first royal land grant by the Governor of Jamaica in 1734, came the perceived need for slaves. Many were brought to the islands from Africa; this is evident today with the majority of native Caymanians being of African and English descent. The results of the first census taken in the islands in 1802 showed the population on Grand Cayman to be 933 with 545 of those inhabitants being enslaved. Slavery was abolished in the Cayman Islands in 1833. At the time of abolition, there were over 950 Blacks of African ancestry enslaved by 116 white families of English ancestry. The islands continued to be governed as part of the Colony of Jamaica until 1962, when they became a separate Crown colony while Jamaica became an independent Commonwealth realm. .

Cayman and Jamaica were governed as a single British colony until 1962, when the Cayman islands became designated a British overseas territory, one of 14 territories under the sovereignty of the UK but not part of the UK, while Jamaica became independent. 2. Cayman was first sighted by Christopher Columbus in 1503. He named the three islands Las Tortugas after the sea turtles he found there. The name Cayman, a Carib Indian word, came later, after a local species of crocodile (also called caimans elsewhere). 3. The three Cayman Islands, Grand Cayman, Cayman Brac and Little Cayman, are located in the western Caribbean about 150 miles south of Cuba. George Town, the capital, is on the western shore of Grand Cayman. 4. The Cayman Islands were the birthplace of Scuba Diving and the popular pastime was introduced in 1957. The island is home to dive sites for people of all skill levels including both shallow options (like Stingray City) and deep dives (such as Babylon). 5. Grand Cayman is a fantastic place to do absolutely nothing. Hotels line the soft white sand of Seven Mile Beach. Five minutes on this beach and you enter lazy mode. Your greatest exertion on some days may be holding your hand out to take your next iced beverage. 6. The Cayman Islands have the dubious honour of having experienced the most hurricane strikes in history. Due to the tropical location of the islands, more hurricanes or tropical systems have affected the Cayman Islands than any other region in the Atlantic basin; it has been brushed or directly hit, on average, every 2.23 years. 7. The Cayman Islands have more registered businesses than people (population is around 56,000). The government’s primary source of income is indirect taxation: there is no income tax, capital gains tax or corporation tax. Based on income, the Caymanians enjoy the highest standard of living in the Caribbean.

Nestled in the calm, turquoise waters of the western Caribbean, lies the peaceful British Overseas Territory known as the Cayman Islands. Consisting of three islands just 480 miles south of Miami, Grand Cayman, Cayman Brac, and Little Cayman remain our little piece of paradise. Government The Cayman Islands highest official is the Governor, His Excellency, Mr. Duncan Taylor, CBE, who is the appointed representative of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. He presides over Cabinet, the ruling body of the country. Mr. Taylor succeeded Mr. Stuart Jack, CVO. The Governor's term is four years. The existing constitution of the Cayman Islands, introduced on August 22, 1972, provides for the government of the Cayman Islands as a British Overseas Territory. It established a governing body called the Cabinet, which consists of three officials and five elected members, the latter being selected from the 15 elected representatives of the Legislative Assembly. To see the 15 elected representatives or to get more information visit the Cayman Islands Government website. Currency The Cayman Islands has its own currency, first issued in 1972, whose basic unit is the dollar, issued in notes with denominations of CI$100, 50, 25, 10, 5 and 1 and coins valued at 25 cents, 10, 5 and 1 cent. The CI dollar has a fixed exchange rate with the US dollar of CI$1.00 equals US$1.25. Or, the US dollar equals CI $.80. There is no need for visitors to exchange their US dollars into local currency. The US dollar is accepted throughout the islands at a rate of CI 80 cents. However, this can be confusing to visitors: for example, a US$20 note becomes CI$16. Banks do NOT give a better rate of exchange! Major credit cards (with the exception of the Discover Card) and traveller's checks are widely accepted. Canadian dollars, Euro dollars and pounds sterling can be exchanged for CI dollars at local banks.

Moody’s Investment Services credit rating analysis of December 2013 is instructive and still holds true. Affirming the Aa3 Cayman government bond rating, the report read: “…the country’s strong institutions further support the rating. A long history of policy consensus and a sensible macroeconomic approach explains its high economic development and still low debt burden. “Cayman scores highly and outperforms most of its peers in such measures as the World Bank’s governance indicators. The UK’s Aa1 rating provides further institutional support through oversight and ultimate judicial review.” The Caymans’ economy is built on three sectors namely – tourism, financial services and infrastructure development. The country is also assisted by a 0% tax rate regime on both companies and individuals and there is no capital gains or property taxes. This has attracted many wealthy people and blue chip companies that prosper from a fixed exchange rate and buoyant economy. The country has a population of around 56,000 with financial services accounting for 67% of its GDP. It is the world’s sixth largest international financial centre. It is characterized by low crime, political and economic stability.

The Cayman Islands, a British Overseas Territory, encompasses 3 islands in the western Caribbean Sea. Grand Cayman, the largest island, is known for its beach resorts and varied scuba diving and snorkelling sites. Cayman Brac is popular for deep-sea fishing of tuna, marlin and barracuda. Cosmopolitan Grand Cayman Island is the largest of the three Cayman Islands. Whether you are looking for complete relaxation, exquisite dining, exciting nightlife or the awesome underwater sights of our oh-so-accessible reefs, we have something for everyone. The water, the beach discover the nature that makes us beautiful. On the west side of Grand Cayman you will find the famous Seven Mile Beach, the crescent-shaped natural wonder with boundless capacity for relaxation. With sand stretching as far as the eye can see, Grand Cayman’s Seven Mile Beach is often rated as one of the most beautiful beaches in all the Caribbean - and the least populated. Take a trip into the North Sound and visit Stingray City and the Sandbar where you and your family have the rare opportunity to play with friendly Southern Stingrays. ------------- If you want to get off the beaten path and you are looking for adventure, then a visit to Cayman Brac on your beach holiday is a must. Named for its breathtaking 140 ft bluff, the “Brac” is a rugged and charming 14 square miles and provides adventure seekers and nature lovers with the opportunity to get up close and personal with some of our islands’ most dramatic scenery, exotic flora and fauna. Those of us who make our home on Cayman Brac take great pride in our island. ---------- The least developed, smallest and most tranquil of our three Cayman Islands, Little Cayman epitomises the definition of "barefoot luxury". Our beautiful island offers seclusion and striking scenery everywhere you look, making it the perfect romantic getaway and one of the top honeymoon destinations. With a population of less than 170, this Caribbean honeymoon destination remains uninhabited. Only ten miles long and one mile wide, Little Cayman offers you a rare combination of sun drenched solitude, glistening beach and miles of untouched tropical wilderness. --------- Find out more tour info on our website: http://banita.lv/ Contacts us: info@banita.lv www.banita.lv The video(s) brought to you by "Cayman Islands Department of Tourism" and is offered to the public for information and entertainment purposes only.

Thanks for watching........ 1) George Town 2) West Bay 3) Bodden Town 4) East End 5) North Side 6) Cayman Brac 7) Little Cayman The Cayman Islands are a British Overseas Territory in the western Caribbean Sea. The territory comprises the three islands of Grand Cayman, Cayman Brac and Little Cayman, south of Cuba and northwest of Jamaica. The Cayman Islands are considered to be part of the geographic Western Caribbean Zone as well as the Greater Antilles. The territory is a major world offshore financial centre. The Cayman Islands remained largely uninhabited until the 17th century. While there is no archaeological evidence for an indigenous people on the islands, a variety of settlers from various backgrounds made their home on the islands, including pirates, refugees from the Spanish Inquisition, shipwrecked sailors, and deserters from Oliver Cromwell's army in Jamaica. The first recorded permanent inhabitant of the Cayman Islands, Isaac Bodden, was born on Grand Cayman around 1661. He was the grandson of the original settler named Bodden who was probably one of Oliver Cromwell's soldiers at the taking of Jamaica in 1655.[6] England took formal control of the Cayman Islands, along with Jamaica, as a result of the Treaty of Madrid of 1670. Following several unsuccessful attempts at settlement, a permanent English-speaking population in the islands dates from the 1730s. With settlement, after the first royal land grant by the Governor of Jamaica in 1734, came the perceived need for slaves.[7] Many were brought to the islands from Africa; this is evident today with the majority of native Caymanians being of African and English descent. The results of the first census taken in the islands in 1802 showed the population on Grand Cayman to be 933 with 545 of those inhabitants being slaves. Slavery was abolished in the Cayman Islands in 1834. At the time of abolition, there were over 950 slaves owned by 116 Caymanian families. The islands continued to be governed as part of the Colony of Jamaica until 1962, when they became a separate Crown colony while Jamaica became an independent Commonwealth realm. The Cayman Islands historically have been a tax-exempt destination. On 8 February 1794, the Caymanians rescued the crews of a group of ten merchant ships, including HMS Convert, an incident that has since become known as the Wreck of the Ten Sail. The ships had struck a reef and run aground during rough seas.[10] Legend has it that King George III rewarded the island with a promise never to introduce taxes as compensation for their generosity, as one of the ships carried a member of the King's own family, his son Prince William, Duke of Clarence and St Andrews. While this remains a popular legend, the story is not true. However, whatever the history, in practice the government of the Cayman Islands has always relied on indirect and not direct taxes. The islands have never levied income tax, capital gains tax, or any wealth tax, making them a popular tax haven.[12] Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cayman_Islands

Mint2btay// Hello guys! For my Spring break, I went to the Cayman Islands! I was so thankful that I was able to go on this trip. My family travels often, and I am so thanful that we do. Cayman Islands had so much to offer. Prior to going I had only heard of the CAYMAN ISLANDS maybe once or twice. The food/people/culture/weather etc. was amazing! It was definitely the trip of a lifetime! Cayman is so different from the states, and personally I love learning about other countries. It has always fascinated me! Cayman is a smaller island, population being less than 60,000, and they seem to have their own style! I LOVED it! Like I mentioned, learning about other countries really fascinates me and if you would like to learn more about the Island you can visit this website!

Spanish/Nat Bolivia's cayman population could be on the brink of extinction. More than half a (m) million of the animals were killed in Bolivia last year for their skins, which fetch high prices in leather markets around the world. In the last four months, 250-thousand cayman skins were illegally exported from Bolivia to Europe and the United States. Bolivia is home to some of the world's most endangered species, but economic hardship has forced rural communities to hunt and trade animals for a living. The cayman is particularly threatened, as illegal trading in cayman skins has become an extremely lucrative industry. Cayman skins produce a very fine leather which is sought after around the world. Most of the skins are smuggled out of the country and illegally sold in the leather markets in Europe and the United States. Environmentalists predict that if illegal trading in cayman skins continues unabated, the animal will be wiped out within three years. SOUNDBITE: (Spanish) "The last reports from CITES-Bolivia say that at least 250-thousand cayman skins are being taken out of Bolivia for international trade." SUPER CAPTION: Juan Carlos Velarde, CITES - Bolivia (International Organisation for the Fauna and Flora) The Bolivian government has begun taking steps to bring illegal trading in endangered species under control. Over the past few months, police have confiscated over 100-thousand skins destined to be sold on the black market. But faced with poor economic prospects, hunters make easy money dealing in the leather market. This, coupled with a lack of government resources to tackle such a widespread and clandestine activity, doesn't bode well for the long term survival of species such as the cayman.

Tagging a Green turtle Chelonia mydas in Grand Cayman. The turtle was microchipped and had numerical tags put on her flippers, she was also measured and a genetic sample taken. This helps to identify the individual and offspring and as such gives a window to the population as a whole. Allowing the authorities to monitor the population to keep it healthy. If you want to see this wonderful spectacle why not volunteer with a turtle organisation. Sea Turtles should never be approached or harassed while nesting, in many regions this is a crime (inc Cayman).
