It is an offshore financial centre and one of the leading tourist scuba diving destinations in the world. The Cayman Islands were first sighted by European eyes when Christopher Columbus, on 10 May 1503, encountered them during his disastrous fourth and final voyage to the New World. He named them Las Tortugas after the numerous sea turtles there." - in wikipedia.
