HouseThe Tourism Attraction Board will be introducing new admission rates to both Pedro St James and the Queen Elizabeth II Botanic Park as of May 1, 2016.

All residents of the Cayman Islands will now be able to avail of a reduced resident rate of $5.00 CI per adult, children 12 years and under will be Free, and Seniors 60 years and over will be Free. Residents must present a valid Cayman ID.

“We are very pleased to introduce the new reduced resident rate and believe that our community will appreciate it. Pedro St. James, the birthplace of democracy, and the Queen Elizabeth II Botanic Park, which showcases the islands diverse flora and fauna, are very special to us all. These sites play a crucial role in ensuring the history and heritage of the Cayman Islands remain alive in our culture today. We want the community to be a part of our attractions as much as possible, and feel this is a great place to start.” — Mr. Patrick Thompson, Financial Controller and Acting CEO, Tourism Attraction Board.

Regular Admission rates will be raised slightly to $10.00 CI for adults, $5.00 CI for children aged 6-12, and Free for children aged 0-5.

Guided Tours will also be available at $15.00 CI for adults, $5.00 CI for children aged 6-12 years and Free for children aged 0-5 years.

“The increase in regular admission rates was necessary in order to counter the effects of inflation over the years. Admission rates were last increased 10 years ago, so this increase is much needed for the attractions.” – Mr. Patrick Thompson, Financial Controller and Acting CEO, Tourism Attraction Board.

Pedro St James will have Guided Tours daily, and the Botanic Park will have Guided Tours on Tuesdays and Thursdays only, at 2:00PM.
