If you travel to Stingray City in the Cayman Islands, located in the western Caribbean Sea, you might be lucky enough to get a kiss from a stranger.

A sandbar was established in Stingray City where people can feed the docile stingrays, and sometimes even get a kiss and a little massage.

Rumor has it that a kiss from a stingray can bring you seven years of good luck.

No one has ever been stung at the site, and biologists say stingrays only attack in self-defense mode. If someone steps on it, it would flip up its dangerous tail.
