Cayman Islands guide for Grand Cayman, Cayman Brac & Little Cayman.

 


Driving information


Renting a car is generally the quickest and easiest way to travel in the Cayman Islands. Most roads are paved and in good condition, although there are a number of small unpaved roads. People usually drive slower here than they do elsewhere in the Caribbean and traffic can be heavy. Drivers should be aware that bus doors open into the center of the road.


License requirements

In order to rent a car, tourists need to obtain a temporary driving permit. These are available from police stations and car rental agencies to holders of valid driver's licenses. While not a mandatory requirement, it is advisable to take an International Driving Permit (IDP) if your license is not in English.

Which side of the road?
Just like the U.K., driving is on the left-hand side of the carriageway.

Speed limits
Speed limits in built-up areas vary between 25 mph and 30 mph. The maximum speed limit on the open road is 50 mph. Speed limits are well sign-posted and penalties for speeding and dangerous driving are severe.

Breakdowns
If your rented car breaks down, contact the rental company who will arrange appropriate breakdown service.

Maps
Detailed maps, with information regarding road conditions, are available from tourist centers and car rental agencies.
