BATABANO

A CULTURAL FEAST AT
BATABANO FESTIVAL

Cayman starts summer just a little early with our annual Batabano Festival held each May. The word “Batabano” refers to the tracks that turtles leave in the sand when they come ashore to nest. A visual and cultural feast, this traditional carnival features a parade of pageantry, stilt walkers, dancers, masquerades and much more. Following the parade, Cayman dishes up the best from land and sea in our Food Festival, with a chance to sample from the islands’ top chefs and restaurants.
