Grand Cayman Hell Excursion Reviews

Visit Hell -- a group of short, black, limestone formations located in Grand Cayman. It’s touristy, but it’s a must-do (and a great photo op for your cruise scrapbook).

Nothing special about this stop except the name. two tiny shops to buy junk and post cards in and the post office to mail your cards from.

Hell & The Lava Formations were very interesting. A great place to mail a letter home with the “Hell” postmark from the Hell post office; or have your passport stamped. The selection of t shirts etc. was very good.

For only $75 bucks per person we did Hell, Turtle farm, Rum Cake Factory, Stingray City, and snorkeling. The Stingrays were awesome and so was the turtles. Hell and Rum Cake Factory could be missed if needed...

Hell was a 20 min tourist trap stop.

Hell was part of the Land & Sea tour. Honestly, Hell is the primary reason I chose this cruise and this particular tour. I learned about Hell in a high school geography class and it has been on my bucket list 20+ years. I'm the kind of person when enjoys goofy tourist attractions like Foamhenge in Virginia so Hell was great to me, silly and fun.

Grand Cayman is beautiful. Very clean. Tour was great!! The Nautilus was fantastic, lots of fish to see!! We also enjoyed Hell; we sent a postcard home! The Turtle Farm was great. We had an informative guide. We also got a nice tour of the town as we drove from place to place. Rum factory was crowded; unfortunately we experienced a crowd making a meal out of the free samples!! But I must admit the rum fudge was tasty! The view and water behind the rum factory, was like glass. BEAUTIFUL!!! We would definitely visit this port again.

This excursion cost the same as the Cruise Lines one. They just went Stingray on a junkie boat and back 2 1/2 hours. Captain Marvins-We went faster, nicer boat. More Stingray interaction, plus another snorkeling stop, and trip to Tortuga Rum Factory and Hell for only 8 bucks more.5 hours

Cool rock formations but if you buy something in the gift shop, check your receipt as 3 people on our tour where overcharged.

Was a different location, smaller than expected, but was OK. The actual site was impressive, with a couple of shops and post office nearby.

Hell was an interesting place to get your passport stamped and mail a postcard back home.

I give this a 5+ not because of the place, but because of the overall experience provided by Captain Marvin's Watersports. They're funny, they're educational--they're great.

Part of a bus tour. Very interesting fossilized coral formations, but that's about it. Charming little stores at this site, but a bit pushy trying to convince us to buy something. Friendly folks though.

Definitely a tourist trap, but the limestone field BEHIND the building is eerily beautiful. You can send a postcard from the shop there postmarked from "HELL". Hopefully this will be my only time in hell. :)

Nothing with nothing. Looked like a cheap amusement park with old wooden signs.

Great pictures that can be over saturated to look like Hell.

Wednesday was the 4th of July and we had a ball! We were in Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands. The shuttles were lined up as we disembarked and our group got a great deal. The shuttle driver was nice and took us around on a tour. He was so nice that we were able to give him a time to come back and get us and he was right on time.

Interesting but exploited area of a erosion. Looks like a miniature Bryce Canyon with oddly shaped pinnacles. Worth seeing.

You don't get a lot of time, but really you don't need it. There is a post office, a few shops and black mean looking rocks... Pass

We made a very short visit to Hell and while not outstanding, it was still interesting. Had some souvenir shops and we were able to purchase drinks, shirts, etc. and postcards that could be mailed from Hell to the people back home.

Tourist trap. Interesting (for about 30 seconds) above water coral formations, and a great place to buy a Tee-Shirt that says "I went to HELL and back". Otherwise a waste of time.

WE traveled on a small uncomfortable bus to the "castle" where the Caymanian constitution was written. It was interesting. Then we went to Hell, which was ok. We sent post cards. The bus then took us to a beach for an hour.

The lava formations at Hell were interesting, and my children got a kick out of sending postcards from there to friends.
