Regional Info:
Located in the sunny Caribbean between Cuba and Jamaica, the Cayman Islands are made up of three islands, with the largest, Grand Cayman, having the capital city George Town where the school is located. Known for coral reefs, white sandy beaches and turquoise waters, it is in many ways a complete island paradise. The Cayman Islands experience little crime, fabulous snorkelling and diving and a laid-back lifestyle. The two biggest industries are tourism and banking. Cayman Islands is a tax-free country, so no tax is deducted from your salary. Due to the thriving economy and the need to import almost 90% of all goods, the cost of living in the Caymans is over 50% more expensive than in the UK.
