Anolis carolinensis, A. sagrei and A. conspersus (Norops conspersus) are the anoles found on Grand Cayman. I agree that it looks most like a drab Anolis conspersus, perhaps a female.

Marinus is correct. Out of the 5 anoles known for Grand Cayman, this is the only one that comes close. Looks like you have a female.
