Crime is on the increase in the beautiful island of Grand Cayman due to the massive influx of foreign nationals and the displacement of Native Caymanians, other caribbean islands beware and don't let this happen to you. I write today with a heavy heart as I am forced to see my islands change from the islands that time forgot into just any other place. Anguilla, Bermuda, BVI & TCI beware and don't allow people to influence your politicians and people into making the wrong decisions by allowing in too much foreign investment and people to completely change the culture and dynamics of your country and people that once made you great.

True! Vacation elsewhere, tourists keep out! Pull all money and investments out of their banks. Any foreign businesses located there should re-locate elsewhere. Let's leave the Caymans entirely alone!

Tourism, in and of itself, is not a bad thing. It is when the very reasons people choose to visit a place (i. e., natural beauty, slower pace of life) are destroyed that people like Judy (and myself) become disenchanted.

I have seen much of Florida bulldozed and damaged by developers who have no interest in preserving the natural resources for future generations.

That Florida has been bulldozed and the Cayman Islands ruined has little to do with tourists or the "influx" of foreign nationals. For one thing, tourists and foreigners are not the ones selling the land to developers. For another, the crime that is being committed in the Cayman Islands is committed at least as often by Caymanians as by anyone else. Might I also remind you that the government of the Cayman Islands has now and always has had complete and utter control of the immigration department, which means that they have elected to let in "the hordes", presumably because it was in their better economic interests to do so. It is indeed unfortunate that Cayman has changed so much (I am a resident, so I certainly wish we could turn back time), but to make decisions about development because they benefit you in the short term and then bemoan the very development that brought you the buck you wanted is disingenuous at best. You make your bed, and then you lie in it. Different decisions could have been made by Caymanians in terms of how and how much they developed the island; the tourists had nothing to say about that. In fact, I am willing to bet that most tourists would have preferred for the island to stay as it was rather than to become yet another little Miami.
