How to Keep Fit on your Caribbean Vacation in the Cayman Islands

observation-towerA Caribbean vacation is a chance to relax and indulge in unique experiences, however, late nights, early mornings and “once-in-a-lifetime” moments seem to take priority over healthy decisions. But at Camana Bay, a 600-acre mixed-use development located between Grand Cayman’s Seven Mile Beach and the North Sound, you can eat delicious, clean meals and effortlessly fit in exercise while having the time of your life in paradise.
Camana Bay is a pedestrian-friendly community where walking, jogging and bicycling are the preferred modes of transportation (and the most convenient). Ask your hotel if they offer complimentary bikes and push the pedals through the scenic routes of Camana Bay. If shopping is your cardio, get in your steps by shopping at more than 40 shops and specialty boutiques at Camana Bay’s expansive Town Centre or see how fast you can run up the double-helix staircase of the 75-foot Observation Tower.
Once you reach the top, you will be rewarded with a 360-degree view of the island.

Additionally, Camana Bay offers ample opportunities for healthy eating so that your vacation can be enjoyed guilt-free. Enjoy nourishing and energizing food, juices and smoothies at Jessie’s Juice Bar or visit Bay Market, which offers a variety of gourmet, specialty and organic items.
Visitors can also eat fresh and support the local community at the Farmers & Artisans Market every Wednesday from noon to 7 p.m., where up to 40 vendors from across the island sell and produce artisanal products and handmade crafts.

Let’s not forget that vacation is about relaxation, so after all that activity visitors can soothe their muscles with a deep tissue massage at Eclipze Hair Design & Day Spa or simply take a minute to relax on one of the hammocks on Camana Bay’s private island.
