The name is probably more interesting than the site. A black craggy limestone rock formation might remind one of an undesirable place since it would be impossible to walk over the sharp spicky crust. The idea of mailing a letter from hell attracts some.

I'm not sure what Hell is supposed to be. The are some interesting volcanic rock formations but after that I'm not sure. When we went the souvenir shop was closed. It looks very tacky

We were driving our rental car all around the island, so just had to stop at Hell. It is one of those little tourist stops with a few views and shops, but how can you avoid Hell (especially since it is free)? The store clerk was fun and the rock formations made for a nice photo----as did a few other... More

The shops at Hell are of course a tourist trap but the rock formations are pretty interesting. I would not need to go back to see it a second time though.

We arrived with low expectations. Unfortunately, the establishment was unable to meet even that modest goal. Don't bother.

The shops out front are a bit of a "tourist trap" but the limestone rock formations in the back are pretty interesting. We stopped here as part of a Cayman Safari tour and unfortunately there were a bunch of cruise ship buses there at the same time so it was pretty crowded and it's not a very big place. If... More

We took a cab to hell - who knew you could do this! The rock formations are interesting and curious. The name alone makes this jaunt a little adventure.

It is a fun place to stop and buy souvenirs, but there is nothing to do here. We stopped because we drove past it. It is just a store with a view of the limestone rock formations out back. It seems like all the tour buses stop here, so the shop was extremely crowded.

Yes it's a tourist trap as far as the typical items you can buy there but it's worth a quick stop. The actual limestone formations are kind of creepy, to be honest, and to see that smack dab in the middle of the island is rather odd after taking in all the gorgeous beaches. It looks like something out of... More

Not much to see, but there are some geographical volcanic rocks that could be interrupted as Hell. A couple of shops selling souvenirs made in China and lots of visitors from the cruise liners. Having said that they have a post office, so you can post your postcards (remember them!!!) from Hell. You can probably do the visit in 15mins.
