Stop by briefly at one of Grand Cayman’s top attraction, Hell and live to tell the tale. This way you will have a comeback every time someone tells you to “go to hell”. It is a huge formation of limestone found in the West Bay area of the island. It is a collection of black spiky and jagged rocks spread on a large piece of land, the size of a soccer pitch. There is a post office there and for a small fee (one dollar when we were there) they will stamp your passport showing that you have been to hell!
