The Cayman Islands are a known tax-haven location in the Caribbean Sea. The small island nation consists of three islands in total: Grand Cayman, Cayman Brac, and Little Cayman. The islands have a total population of 60,000 people and a capital city located in George Town, with a famous status of having more corporations located in the islands than full-time residents.
