Tourists encouraged to ‘Discover the East’

Just in time for the holidays and high tourist season, 14 eastern-district businesses and attractions are making it more fun and more affordable to explore the traditional side of Cayman.

Developed by the Tourism Attraction Board, the US$16 ‘Discover the East’ Adventure Card provides free admission to both the Pedro St. James National Historic Site and the Queen Elizabeth II Botanic Park, said a press release.

Inside, the Adventure Card features a map that highlights the eastern districts of Grand Cayman and identifies the locations of each sponsoring business and attraction. The back of the Adventure Card lists ten exclusive money-saving values that are only available to card holders.

Gilbert Connolly, CEO of the Tourism Attraction Board said, ‘Standard admission to the Pedro St. James and the Botanic Park would normally cost a visitor US$20. The Adventure Card costs only US$16 and represents a great value by giving visitors admission to both of these Caymanian treasures.’

Free gifts and additional cash discounts make the Adventure Card even more valuable.

Cayman National Bank and Foster’s Food Fair-IGA are the two premiere sponsors of the Adventure Card. Foster’s Food Fair-IGA serves the eastern districts with a complete supermarket shopping experience at the Countryside Shopping Village in Savannah and a smaller-scale Foster’s Express store at Morritt’s Shopping Centre in East End.

Cayman National Bank likewise offers a full-service branch in Savannah’s Countryside Shopping Village and an ATM next to Foster’s Express in Morritt’s Shopping Centre, the release notes.
