Grand Cayman/Costa Maya Shopping

My mother will be in a wheelchair, how close to the ship is the recommended shopping? Are taxis available? Are they resonable? Am I crazy for attemping to shop with her? TIA

There is shopping in Costa Maya right at the end of the dock.

There is shopping right across from where you tender in Cayman. I might find a taxi and have them take you to Caymana Bay. It's a super nice outdoor shopping eating complex. It is so nice and I think it would be so much easier to navigate than the shopping at the docks. It sits on a bay so you can sit there and there are some nice places to have a drink or lunch.

Caymana Bay is a short taxi right across the street from 7 mile beach.

Thanks for the info. Stupid question, do they take American currency? Is it a long taxi ride?

the shopping in Grand Cayman is much closer to the dock and significantly better than Costa Maya....the problem/issue is to get to the dock in Grand Cayman you need to take a tender from the Fantasy (or whichever boat you're on) versus Costa Maya which pulls right up to the "shore"....it is a long walk from the ship over the dock to the shops in Costa Maya...
