When that little groundhog told us we were in for a long winter, was anyone prepared for all the snow, snow, and more snow that’s been falling? Everyone dreams of a white Christmas, but come mid-February, we’re back to dreaming of flowers blossoming, green trees, and warm rays of sunlight, right? It might be a while before you see any of that at home, but it’s all waiting for you at Grand Cayman island in the Caribbean Sea. The Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman is offering a special Stingray Splash vacation package with a complimentary fifth night at the luxury hotel.
The package includes accommodations at the Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman, a trip for two to Stingray City, and a free fifth night of your vacation. What is this Stingray City? According to ocean explorer and preservationist Jean-Michel Cousteau, it is one of the best snorkeling sites in the world. To get there, you’ll board the Intrepid motor yacht at the resort’s dock with a group of no more than 8 total visitors. It’s a 15-minute boat ride to the shallow sandbar in Cayman’s North sound known as Stingray City.
In crystal clear, 3-foot-deep waters, guests can snorkel, play with and feed the gentle stingrays which are accustomed to human visitors.
When you’re not communing with friendly rays, there’s plenty more to enjoy at the Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman: Silver Rain, a La Prairie Spa, Jean-Michel Cousteau’s Ambassadors of the Environment family program, Blue Tip, a 9-hole golf course designed by Greg Norman, and of course all the fine dining options you’d expect at any Ritz-Carlton property.
The Stingray Splash package starts at $609 per night for the high season. Visit www.ritzcarlton.com for reservations and more information.
