About the Cayman Islands
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 Caymans experience little crime, fabulous snorkelling and diving and a laid-back lifestyle, and your after-school life will be something only dreamt of by others.
Cayman Islands is a tax-free country, so no tax is deducted from your salary, and the two biggest industries are tourism and banking. The Cayman Islands are one of the richest islands not only in the Caribbean but in the world. 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 but the views, the sunshine, the friendly atmosphere and the beaches are free. Because of the cost of living, it is not financially practical for teachers who have more than 1 dependent child per teacher.
