To the outsider the Cayman Islands - Cayman Brac, Grand Cayman, and Little Cayman - are almost always equated with watersports and glorious beaches, plus offshore banking opportunities. This is hardly surprising, since the Cayman Islands do offer world-class scuba diving in crystal-clear waters as well as a tax-free haven. But these three islands have so much more to offer the traveler who´s willing to wander off the traditional tourist paths, walk away from the beachside resorts, and explore by themselves. Diverse woodlands and pristine wetlands occupy much of the islands´ interiors; rugged hiking trails meander across the peaks and valleys; and mangrove swamps cushion the shoreline, offering a unique breeding ground for many birds and fish. These protected wilderness areas are often left unexplored by lay-in-the-sun-all-day tourists, who miss some of the biggest attractions the islands offer. Join our team of Caribbean experts in their quest to discover ´´the other Caymans´´, the islands´ little-visited spots away from the crowds, where you can trek for miles without seeing another soul; strip down and sun yourself on a secluded beach; or join a group and sail offshore as the sun sets. As with all adventure guides, this book introduces you to the history, geography, and people of the region first, so you have a good background knowledge of the island chain. The authors then take you on a tour, visiting all the popular tourist sites and towns and offering valuable tips on shopping, transportation, restaurants and accommodations. Then it´s on with the adventures: On foot, on and below the water, on wheels, in the air, and on horseback. Among the many fun activities included are: Paragliding Sailing Catamaran cruises Soaring Scuba diving Trekking Hiking Waterskiing Windsurfing Snorkeling Driving trips Horsebac... 1.

A sparkling feel-good comedy, which asks the question - how far would you go to get your child the must-have Christmas toy? It´s December 1992, and children are going crazy for the Tracy Island toy - almost as crazy as the parents! Christmas day is fast approaching and Coco Pinchard is desperately trying to track one down for her four-year-old son Rosencrantz. Throw into the mix a horrible boss, a lazy husband, and the prospect of her in-laws arriving for the festivities, and Coco wishes she could cancel Christmas and sail off to a desert island somewhere - preferably with the gorgeous-yet-unattainable Tom from work. But retail therapy is at hand! Coco´s faithful friends Chris and Marika rally round, and even her mother-in-law Ethel tries to help in her own eccentric way. From dodgy dealings in a motorway lay-by, to extreme shopping in Hamley´s with a Sylvanian Families fanatic, to having a go at the Blue Peter make-your-own Tracy Island, Coco tries everything in the hope that Rosencrantz will open his must-have toy on Christmas morning. 1.
