I received a letter from someone with more insight on Divi Tiara Beach Resort, the place documented in a short film I created in 2013.

I often wonder what the abandoned Divi Tiara Beach Resort looks like today, compared to my visit in May 2013 that resulted in the film below. According to Diane, a commenter on my website, it hasn't changed much. I received this today June 16th:
"I just came back 2 days ago from Cayman Brac. We stayed next door to Divi at the Brac Reef Resort. We passed by Divi a couple of times and it is still abandoned. I'm surprised that another developer hasn't picked up this gorgeous property. At this point I'd be very surprised if the Divi Company has any plans to rebuild. Your video was both chilling and sad to me as there was once a thriving business there that provided much needed jobs for the locals and added so much to the tiny island. Thank you Jordan!"
Watch the trailer for my short film to understand more about this story, and let me know if you visit the island in the future!
I recently visited the island known as Cayman Brac, and while there I chronicled my discovery of the abandoned Divi Tiara Beach Resort. In the fully edited video below, you get to see my view as I explore the grounds and try to piece together why the buildings are still on the island, vacant and uninhabited. The ending includes a conclusion presenting my research and also shows several interesting before and after photo comparisons. View the complete video in 720p or 1080p below. Fullscreen viewing recommended.
I’ve also gathered several of my still photos, all of which are available in larger sizes by clicking or viewing below:
The second slideshow below comes from J.J. Dilbert, a photographer who explored the property in August 2010, around four years after Divi Tiara Beach Resort closed:
Lastly, there are several links below from some old websites that have stories, photos and video from the resort:
