    Went to Hell
    I went to Hell with my son. It was a great experience. We rented a car, drove the entire island and came across Hell in our travels. Be sure and stop at the little store and meet the devil and his wife. The rock formations are incredible and the staff at the store made it all worth while.

    Hard to believe this place exists in such a gorgeous island
    We were shocked to walk around the post office building and see these rock formations. Looks so out of place! It was an interesting sight. This was also a free attraction. The guy at the shop was very friendly and we spent some time asking him questions about this site and also about CI in general. We bought a couple of postcards there and purchased stamps at the post office and mail them from there.... postcard from HELL!! yikes... It's definitely worth the trip.

    Went to Hell and back on vacation!
    After visiting the Dolphin/Turtle Center went took a 5 min drive to Hell lol :). It s a cool experience, photo op. Not crowded. We parked, parked out on the deck and looked at the formations for about 5 or 10 mins, visited the gift shop and left. It's not a long thing, but if you are on the West end and want a quick cool little experience this is great! My Wife and kids ( 9 and 11 ) loved it!

    Disappointed. Complete Tourist Trap!
    Our tour stopped here and we specifically booked it because we’d heard about Hell for years and how it’s a must stop. It isn’t. Neat rocks that take maybe 5 minutes to see. Cheap souvenirs. Annoying devil man trying to get you to purchase said souvenirs. Can get passport stamped but thought they’d have a much more creative stamp. Can also mail a postcard from Hell to US from their post office. Tried and ours never came, but somehow the one we sent my sister in law did make it, so you’ll have mixed success. If you like kitschy stuff and cheap souvenirs this is your spot but there’s so many better ways to spend your time in Grand Cayman.

    Short tourist stop with not much to see
    This is a tourist area and going is just a cutesy little "I've been to hell" moment just to say you did it. There were sharp rock formations out back with some water between it and that's about it. The guy that worked there handed us a few props with devil ears and a pitchfork for pictures but we didn't see any of the other things in pictures we seen here. It looks like there was some type of restaurant or bar inside at one point but no longer open. Then there's a small gift shop in front where you can buy a postcard and have them send it to back home stamped from hell. All I can say is thankfully they don't charge a fee to enter.

    He’ll Post Office is worth the trip!
    The Hell Post Office is a gem! 25¢ Cayman to send a postcard to US; all mail is hand postmarked w/“Hell” mark! There are pens available for writing postcards, and the woman working the desk was VERY helpful and kind. Bonus was the sale of philatelic souvenirs at very reasonable prices!

    Disappointed :-(
    While visiting Grand Cayman on a cruise we decided to head to "Hell". When we arrived, we decided to walk around the area and visit Post Office and souvenir stores. As we walked near the entrance to get a picture with the main sign, we were stopped by a man selling coconuts at the front of the property. I was unsure of him because he looked very unkept and smelled very odd. Almost like moldy clothes. As were inquiring about them he informed us that it was $5 and that he also sold Marijuana. We were in shock! We had just come from Jamaica and the experience was HORRIBLE! Everywhere we went in Jamaica we were pushed to buy Marijuana. It was disgusting. We will never disembark in Jamaica again!! A lady we had met on the tour bus from our ship relieved our fears from Jamaica that Grand Cayman would not be so, as she had been several times and Marijuana was illegal in Grand Cayman and that we should also experience a more pleasant experience as the locals were much nicer. She was also who recommended visiting "Hell". She told us she enjoyed sending Post Cards to family from the Hell Post Office and the souvenirs were cute (We did get a few). We were just so disappointed because even after we refused explaining that we did not smoke, he still insisted that we purchase some marijuana. And was very aggressive about it. We said we would be back to get away from him, and decided to buy a coconut from the dock where we landed on the way back. Overall, the Grand Cayman experience was great, and we will visit again just not likely to go back to "Hell"! especially if that man is still there!
    Dear Ms. Samantha, Thank you for sharing your recent experience at the Hell Geological Site. We sincerely apologize for the discomfort caused by the encounter with an individual near the entrance.

    Great tacky tourist attraction! Please give Mabel your business!!
    I love tacky tourist attractions. To see Hell and send postcards to friends saying wish you were here... So much fun! Its a small field filled with black jagged rocks. But you go for the experience! Now...I need to share our story. I had a,few small dollar bills in my pocket. My husband had our real money and credit cards in his wallet. We took a tour bus to hell from the cruise port for $8 each which I paid. We got to Hell. Spent a couple minutes looking at the rocks. The post office was closed. There were 3 tiny shops next to the lookout platform. We went into the middle one to look at souvenirs. We then realized my husband forgot his wallet on the cruise ship. There we were with no money. It was like 100 degrees. We didn't know how to get back to the cruise ship and didn't have any money to do so anyway. The woman who owns the shop in the middle overheard us. She was in her 80s, sweet as can be and seemed to really have physical issues. This amazing woman, Mabel, insisted on giving us money. She opened her little purse from the cash drawer. She gave us $40 which looked to be literally about half of what she had. We told her no. She insisted. (we are sending her money and a gift when we get home)/ She really came to our rescue! But please... If you go there, buy something from Mabels shop. She didn't have much inventory but its totally deserved!

    Glad I got the hell out of there 😀
    It was a fun experience. We got to meet Mabel who is the sweetest little lady! We sent postcards to family members and enjoyed seeing the unusual rocks. We forgot to bring our passports to get them stamped so we will be sure to do that next time we visit.

    Tourist stop to Hell.
    Our taxi tour of the island stopped here. We made two stops, there was some stores before the post office but they were not open. Then or driver RuthAnn took us to the over to the Post Office. There are 2 store you can buy T Shirts and postcards to send home from Hell. The volcanic rocks were interesting.

We got off the Royal Caribbean cruse ship and left the secured area and were met by a woman with a sign that said tour to m7 mile beach, rum cake factory and other areas. The tour was only $30.00 per person. They put us on a small bus that was had air conditioning. The driver Sammy was outstanding and drove us to many areas and he also stopped in front of the governors house. He was very informative and said a couple of times I am going to take you to hell. I thought a fast bus ride But no it was to a small city/place that was named HELL. It was small but very interesting. We got out out and there area some small stores that sell shirts from hell. They had chickens running around. It was very nice. You can get your passport stamped for a dollar from Hell. They had clean bathrooms if needed. The first store owner was very nice and I asked many questions and he answered all of them. The other store owners were also great. The rocks formation in the back looked like you were going into hell. I recommend this stop to all.

Except for the black iron-shore limestone rocks, there isn't much to see. Plus there was garbage in the rocks so it isn't kept up really well. Not worth going there.

I was here 5 years ago also and both times I’ve sent a postcard from hell to people at home but never came. I can understand once but twice now? It was only a dollar but with the amount of people who go there that’s a lot of 1 dollars to scam out of people.

It's a novelty, and a funny story ... But we were disappointed. The rock formations are interesting. You don't need sturdy shoes as you remain on decking to view it. We did the obligatory postcards home from Hell. There are a couple of very small gift shops. We just felt like they could do something more. There were some cruisers that came in taxis... My husband commented that he would be upset to go through the trouble getting there from a cruise ship and find that's all there was. They do have nice bathrooms though!

Interesting place but a bit overrated
Stopped here as part of a shore excursion bought on a Norwegian Cruise Ship
Interesting rock formation to visit "on the go"
