Go to Hell, so named for the underworld-evoking field of jagged, blackened limestone formations that crop up in this tiny Caymanian town, where iguanas handily outnumber human residents. While you’re there, stop into Hell’s Gift Shop to browse the quip-covered stickers, mugs, and T-shirts (HAVING A HELL OF A DAY!), and send loved ones postcards from Hell’s one and only post office. You’ll be greeted by an octogenarian Lucifer, aka Ivan Farrington, who’s been dressing the part for decades—as he’ll happily demonstrate with his 1980-something star turn on Inside Edition (rest assured—he’ll have the tape all cued up in the VCR in anticipation of your arrival).

A Trip to Hell

There is nothing quite like receiving a postcard from Hell… but when it’s from the small town in Grand Cayman, it becomes comically entertaining. The town was named Hell because of the jagged, blackened limestone and lava rock found bordering the shoreline. Make a pit stop into Hell’s gift shop to purchase post cards, mugs, and t-shirts and send loved ones your wishes from Hell’s one and only post office.
