Smith’s Cove Cayman Islands


  1. Visitors to and residents of Grand Cayman: please note that Cayman Brac is the safest island – no guns, no armed robberies, no bad apples – a place you can feel safe anywhere on the island 24/7. And our infrastructure is superb. Come visit, live and work here! It’s close as can be to heaven.

  2. Sp how long will it be before the Cayman islands becomes as notorious for crime as Jamaica? When will all hotels need to be surrounded by barded wire fences and have armed guards?

    Chicago has a violent robbery rate of 5.17 per thousand. Let’s say Grand Cayman has a population of 50,000, this would mean 258 per year at the same rate.
    (And Chicago is one of the most dangerous cities in the USA)

    This is about two every three days.

    Now how any armed robberies have been reported this year? Seems like one reads about one or more almost every day.
