A Trip to Hell (part of Just Go's Blogapalooza)

As part of Just Go's Blogapalooza, today's post features a trip to a strange subtropical land--Hell, Grand Cayman.

We enjoyed a brief stop in Hell. The visit was booked as a shore tour with our cruise.









Our small group also stopped at a turtle farm and fed stingrays at Stingray City. Very fun!

IronMakeover readers and triathletes check out the Cayman Islands Turtle Tri.
Where's the most exotic place you've ever raced? I think the water bottle exchange would be on the left in the Cayman Islands, that would be tricky.

Hell was named for its strange appearance. The black limestone formations are filled with Iguanas of all sizes.

This tiny tourist stop has its own hell-themed post office, so we were able to send some postcards from Hell.

Overall, the Cayman Islands were heavenly!

I had only heard of Hell, Michigan. This Hell looks so much more exotic with black limestone!

Sounds like a fun place to visit, if only for the postcards and the fact that you can say you've been to hell and back.

That's one Hell of a trip!
Postcards from Hell cracks me up! How did you sign them?

*giggles* ... people actually go to Hell on purpose?!? actually, now that I've seen pictures, I have to admit that I'll be adding it to my wish list of places to visit ... though I'm not sure I'd like crossing paths of wild iguana's - I hear they can be wicked mean.

thanks for sharing! ~M~

I was there this summer. You have to go, but the postcards are better than the real thing.

Thanks everyone from Just Go's party! You are all so clever!

Lazy Triathlete, I agree, you have to go, but the idea of Hell and its postoffice are it, not much more to it.
