Assignment in George Town in the Cayman Islands

Today I would like to discuss George Town in Cayman Islands. If you were to be sent to George Town on an expatriate assignment or if you were to relocate there, you are likely to experience weather that is tropical marine, and warm with rainy summers (May to October) and cool, relatively dry winters (November to April). You will meet people who speak English.

The cost of clothing, transport and food and beverages is very high compared to other places. The cost of housing is are high compared to other places. George Town, Grand Cayman, is the capital of the Cayman Islands, in the British West Indies. George Town is the heart of the Cayman Islands financial industry, with over 600 banks located there. Most of these are small one room operations, some having no physical location on the island at all. It also has cruise ship facilities and several shopping plazas.

From a day to day comfort perspective, you are likely to experience some hardship. Be sure to negotiate an appropriate salary or allowance to compensate for the cost of living. If you live in George Town or if you lived there recently, let us know what your experience has been. Would you live in George Town again?
