There are no hidden meanings here. As I discovered last month on my trip to Cayman Islands, Stingray City is literally a city of stingrays along a series of sandbars just off the coast of Grand Cayman. As the story goes, decades ago, fishing boats would stop in the shallow waters to clean the fish they had caught for the day. What was the inedible, disposable parts for fishers, was dinner for the abundance of stingrays that would gather here. Over the years they’ve continued to congregate, even while it’s become the most popular thing to do on Grand Cayman.

I did quite a bit of research, even more than normal, about Stingray City before my excursion to find out  about the integrity and general consensus about the attraction, being the most popular thing to do on Grand Cayman. And I was pleased with what I found both in my research and on the trip itself. It is a popular destination, but the stingrays come and go as they please. Nonetheless, I’m glad I went when I did, mid-week when there weren’t any docked cruise ships, as there were just 10-15 of us. But rather then bore you with any more details, I’ll just show you in photos. I believe the photos speak for themselves!
