Little Cayman Island, Cayman Islands - 1998
The Cayman Islands were discovered on May 10th, 1503 by Christopher Columbus on
his forth and last voyage to the new world. He was actually on his way from Panama to
Hispaniola when his ships were steered off course by strong winds, and he sighted Cayman
Brac and Little Cayman. The story says that he reported sighting two small islands, so
full of tortoises (turtles) that they looked like rocks, and he gave the islands the name
Las Tortugas (The Turtles). (Excerpt from "A Brief History of the Cayman Islands."
