The Cayman Islands also happen to be one of the hottest destinations to visit in the Caribbean.

Grand Cayman, the main island in the chain, is one of the most popular cruise ports in the region. Cruise visitors land at the capital of Georgetown and often take advantage of several major attractions including Seven Mile Beach, Stingray City and Cayman Turtle Farm.

The island is especially popular on western Caribbean cruises that often include Jamaica, Roatan and Cozumel.

The average daytime temperature ranges from 86 degrees Fahrenheit in February to 92 degrees from June through August, according to historical records from the National Meteorological Service of the Cayman Islands.

The average nighttime temperatures range from 65 degrees in February to 74 degrees in June.
