You would be surprised at the number of historical sites that exist in the Cayman Islands, or the many places where you can experience nature firsthand and learn about the unique flora and fauna that reside here.

The National Trust is hard at work preserving our history and lands for future generations, and now you can learn more about this organization when you carry your very own Explorer Passport.

The Explorer Passport is the first comprehensive scavenger hunt booklet produced in Cayman. It is a one-of-a-kind ticket to adventure that offers visitors and residents an interesting way to discover the many hidden or little-known places around Grand Cayman. Participants follow clues, travel to different sites, discover unique aspects of each area and learn about the heritage and natural wonders of this beautiful land in which we live.

The 20-page booklet features photos of sites and includes a map and stickers that will allow you to mark where you have been. Each of the pages has a variety of nature-related activities that you can see and explore. There are also several “Did You Know?” facts that will educate you while on your path of discovery.
