Cayman reputation hurting

The CITA is correct about crime affecting Cayman tourism.

As a long time visitor and frequent reader of the Compass, I am very concerned about this situation since much of the crime is in the West Bay Road area I frequent as a tourist.

I remember the attraction to me for Cayman besides the beach, water, etc. was knowing I would be safe. A camera could be left in an unlocked car and you knew it would be there when you returned. Obviously the world has changed since then and we are all more cautious, but having to be wary of being robbed or a home invasion does not make for a relaxing vacation. I will be back in January and hope that things improve.

I never thought I would consider not coming to Cayman, but have to admit that thought has crossed my mine. I hope it doesn’t come to that!
