Legend has it that each drop of water that falls on you (called a 'cave kiss') will bring you good luck. To the right of Crystal Caves you’ll find the equally stunning Fantasy Cave.

• Bermudians tend to dress more formally than most Americans. So its best to pack accordingly. Upscale dinner restaurants require men to wear a tie and jacket and for women to dress comparably.
• Bermuda has an excellent public transport system. Their bus systems extend across the entire island. To save yourself, a substantial amount of money buy the cheap, week long pass instead of paying for expensive taxis.
• The Bermudian dollar is equal to the US dollar, and almost everyone will accept your American dollars as payment.
