Discover: Pirates Week in the Caymans

If you're in love with pirates, or for that matter just Johnny Depp, this could be the event you've been waiting for ;)  The 35th annual Pirates Week celebration is currently underway in the Cayman Islands.

Offering something for everyone with a bevy of parades, parties and fireworks, Pirates Week 2012 takes place this November 8 to 18, 2012.  Spanning the three Cayman Islands (Grand Cayman, Cayman Brac & Little Cayman), attendees during Pirates Week can don their best pirate costumes while enjoying the mock pirate 'invasion' in George Town.  

Family activities to enjoy include a children's fun fair day, turtle release, cardboard boat race, circuit race and a disco just for teens.  Athletes can participate in a 5 or 10K run while scuba divers can enjoy a fund-raising underwater treasure hunt.  There's also a food fair showcasing authentic island cuisine - be sure to try anything jerk, Cayman-style fish, breadfruit, coconut and turtle soup (yikes!).

The Westin Grand Cayman Seven Mile Beach Resort & Spa is offering a Pirates Week package from only $119 per night while Budget Cayman car rentals is offering 25% off their standard rates.  You can still pick up a four-night hotel package including airfare with Cayman Airways for as little as $788 per person.
