What makes Grand Cayman one of the best Caribbean vacation spots? Well, that’s a trick question – there are a ton of reasons. But perhaps the most important among them is that you can enjoy it all naturally. If you’re among the many travelers who consider eco-friendliness and healthy living among the factors for choosing a Caribbean beach vacation, Grand Cayman should be at the top of your list. The island boasts great eco activities, including the best diving in the Caribbean as well as a great variety of healthy food and wellness options.
Looking for a true eco experience? Try one of Grand Cayman’s famed walking tours (https://www.frommers.com/destinations/cayman-islands/planning-a-trip/sustainable-travel–ecotourism), or sightseeing at Lighthouse Point.
Heading to Grand Cayman to enjoy the diving? Our very own Wyndham Reef Resort Grand Cayman has partnered with Ocean Frontiers located on site (https://www.caribjournal.com/2017/04/08/new-dive-operation-caymans-wyndham-reef-resort/#), a renowned dive operator staffed by marine biologists and local reef conservation experts to offer the best diving in the Caribbean.
If you’re determined to eat healthy on your Caribbean vacation, check out Camana Bay (https://www.tripadvisor.com/Attraction_Review-g147365-d3140425-Reviews-Camana_Bay-Grand_Cayman_Cayman_Islands.html) on a Wednesday, when the local farmers and artisans run a bustling market from noon until around 8:00 p.m.
Of course, after all that hustle and bustle, you may be inclined to unwind and relax a bit. To do so, you can enjoy natural spa treatments from Wyndham Cayman Reef Resort’s Le-Soleil Spa using professional products made from Plants. (https://sharleneb.sg-host.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/Le-Soleil-Spa-Wyndham-Reef-Brochure-2017.pdf) Pro tip: Try our 80 Minute Phyto Marine: Seaweed or Marine Mud Body Wrap, a body contouring and slimming treatment that includes dry brushing and brisk kneading that prepares the skin for the application of mud. This treatment relaxes, tones, , reduces stress, fatigue, joint pain, muscle pain, swollen legs and feet, re-mineralizes, and firms for a trimmer looking silhouette. And did we mention yoga classes?
Plus, our very own Wyndham Reef Resort Grand Cayman is your spot to do it all and enjoy it all from one great spot for a green vacation. Some of our recent sustainability initiatives include:
- Transitioning our lighting to LED, a resort-wide project to be complete by September, 2018.
- Installing a new energy conservation thermostat system which has helped significantly reduced the resort’s carbon footprint.
- Thermostats that automatically turn off the AC when the patio door is open (and left open). This helps conserve electricity and avoids cooling the room with a door wide open.
- When a room checks out, the front desk sets the room to unoccupied and this changes the temp of the room warmer– so unoccupied rooms are not empty with the AC on low. A few hours before a guest is due to check in the room is set to occupied and this changes the temp so the room is cool for the arriving guest.
These are just a few of the ways we’re helping. But all around you, natural beauty abounds so there is no shortage of reasons that the Wyndham Reef Resort in Grand Cayman is your spot to do it all and enjoy it all. Plus, many of the great activities you can enjoy here are green by default, as they match guests with the environment on its simplest, most beautiful terms. That’s why the best diving in the Caribbean is here, and is counted among our great eco activities.
