    Thought the A-Z list was clever and well thought out. I always enjoy your blog and now I know to visit Sting Ray city when in the Cayman Islands. Actually, that doesn’t seem so interesting to me, but I haven’t researched the other options.

  2. I am loving your A-Z, such a fun idea! We LOVE the Caribbean but have only ever visited off cruise ships. I would love to fly and stay on a stand alone trip. The Nick resort looks amazing!!
