Cayman Islands Tourism Association Welcome
CITA is a non-profit tourism association representing some 200 private business members. Our membership includes: hotels, condos/villas, watersports, restaurants, transportation, attractions, cruise and allied (other businesses associated with our tourism product). Formed in 2001 through an amalgamation of the Cayman Tourism Alliance and the Cayman Islands Hotel and Condominium Association, the association is wholly funded by membership subscriptions and fundraising. CITA actively promotes the continuing improvement and development of Cayman’s tourism industry through the exchange of information, government relations, training and education, marketing and events.
CITA members offer visitors to the Cayman Islands an exceptional level of service and products, so be sure to look for the “CITA seal of approval” (decals) on the doors of establishments during your stay. This is a sign of their commitment to high standards.
Whether you were born here, work here, or are visiting us, the Cayman Islands offers the best of sun, sea, activities and a warm CaymanKind welcome from our people. Visit Cayman Islands is filled with articles and information on things to do and experience during your stay.
Our tropical paradise has received numerous accolades in the past year. Seven Mile Beach, in particular, was designated the number one beach in the world by U.S. News & World Report in 2015. TripAdvisor bestowed several other accolades on the destination, its establishments and attractions, including a 2015 Certificate of Excellence for the Kittiwake Shipwreck and Artificial Reef.
While you are here, do take in the sights, interact with our friendly people, encounter incredible duty-free shopping, explore our clear seas, splash into our underwater wrecks such as the Kittiwake, swim with our stingrays, visit our attractions, and dine in our exquisite restaurants… and if you are here in January, don’t forget to attend the annual Taste of Cayman Food & Wine Festival (January 23, 2016). This event is a “must-add” to your future visits to Grand Cayman. You will be impressed with the entertainment, the atmosphere and the culinary delights that will leave you wanting to come back year after year.
Our Visitors Centre is located at 1320 West Bay Road in a quaint Caymanian cottage. We are happy to provide you with directions and recommendations on where to go, what to see and what to do. We look forward to your visit! If you can’t make it to our location, please feel free to give us a call at (345) 949-8522.
Together for Tourism…
Executive Director, CITA
