The Cayman Cookout is one of my favorite events to go to, and it’s not just for the food. Purchasing a package at the Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman as a Ritz-Carlton Rewards Credit Card holder is one way to make sure your time at the Cookout is a complete gastronomic and luxurious experience. The four-night package during the Cayman Cookout with celebrity chefs Jose Andres, Anthony Bourdain and more, including all meals and special events, cost me $5,500. During the same period, the room would have cost me $1,300 per night — so I was already coming out ahead when considering everything that came with it. Overall, the property is easily one of the best point hotels in the Caribbean, and I’m already looking forward to going back next year.
