Description

The Mastic Reserve on the Grand Cayman protects many of the island’s unique birds, animals, plants, in a unique habitat of semi-evergreen forests and wetlands. This half-day hike takes you to discover the fascinating untouched nature of this place in the western Caribbean.

The reserve is traversed by the historic Mastic Trail, an ancient wilderness path that takes you through a great diversity of habitats.  Along the trail we can find some of the rarest trees in the island, like ironwood, mahogany, wild orchids, medicinal plants and West Indian cedar, among many other species.

The Mastic Reserve is one of the last remaining subtropical, semi deciduous dry forests in the Caribbean, an habitat that has been the target of intense deforestation in the region. This natural protected area is also home to a wide and unique variety of animals.

The National Trust aims to safeguard the survival of the diversity of native wildlife on the islands, by protecting intact natural areas. Today, 843 acres form the Mastic Reserve, under the management and protection of the National Trust for the Cayman Islands.
