About Grand Cayman
Grand Cayman and its sister islands, Cayman Brac and Little Cayman, form the Cayman Islands. Originally part of the British West Indies, Cayman (Cay-MAN as it is called locally) remains a protectorate of Great Britain. Grand Cayman is the largest of the three islands with Georgetown as its capital. A popular port for cruise ships, Cayman has become well known as an offshore banking center. You will need a passport to visit Grand Cayman. In the winter months, Cayman time is the same as US Eastern time, and in summer months, the time is the same as US Central time (Cayman does not change with daylight savings).
