In Activities, Festival

What are your fall and winter plans? Are you perhaps thinking of a Caribbean escape? Because if you are, there are a few Grand Cayman events coming up over the next few months that may excite you!

November will be very busy, with Pirates Week starting on the 10th of November on Grand Cayman and running until November 20. Mock pirate invasions, fireworks, dancing, delicious Caribbean cuisine – this is a unique, one-of-a-kind event like no other perfect for families. It’s a blast.

While pirates take over Grand Cayman another international event also occurs: The Cayman Islands Triathlon. This grueling athletic contest takes place on Sunday, November 11, and is the highlight of the triathlon season. Participants have the choice of two different courses: Sprint Distance, which has a 750m swim, 12.4mi ride and 3.1mi run; and Olympic Distance, which has a 1500m swim, 24.8mi ride, and 6.2mi run.

Fast forward a bit to on Sunday the 4th, the Cayman Islands Marathon returns, giving participants a chance to run across a spectacular Caribbean island filled with wondrous views throughout. This event is hotly anticipated each year, consisting of a full marathon, half marathon, four-person relay, and a Kids Fun Run. Celebrating 14 years and counting!

It’s going to be a festive finish to the year, but don’t worry – if you just want to relax on Seven Mile Beach, we understand. 😉
