LARGEST WEB AND SOCIAL MEDIA AUDIENCE
With an average of 23,000 monthly web visits and over 15,500 Facebook ‘Likes’, the online version of Good Taste is easily the most read and influential culinary magazine in Cayman!
As Good Taste is a reference guide, your business will be referred to constantly during the year. Good Taste also maximises the visibility of your business by cross referencing you in multiple places in the magazine and online.

When comparing advertising to other high volume Cayman magazines, Good Taste offers great value, but when factoring in the additional online and social media exposure, the value for money is exceptional.
