Grenada is an island country and Commonwealth realm consisting of the island of Grenada and six smaller islands at the southern end of the Grenadines in the southeastern Caribbean Sea. Grenada is located northwest of Trinidad and Tobago, northeast of Venezuela, and southwest of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines. Thank you Wikipedia, you’re ever helpful. Anyways, the cold weather is fast approaching and as much as I enjoy the cooler air rather than roasting in heat, I was looking up some exotic vacation spots to add to my list. Grenada isn’t as popular as other islands but that makes it even more intriguing. I love a good mystery and would really like to discover what this beautiful escape has to offer.
Well, first off let’s look at the many tours offered. Grenada with its lush mountains, it’s beautiful beaches and the crystal clear waters, offers a wide variety of tours and sightseeing. From hiking in the rain forest and going on jeep adventures, to sailing and deep sea diving.
If you’re a lover of nightlife activities, and even if you’re not, I hear there are quite a few hot spots visitors and locals alike can appreciate. Music is of course a big part of the Caribbean so you’ll find that most of the hangouts emphasize on that cultural aspect.
I’m always willing to taste different things (as long as it looks eatable), so food is a big part of vacationing cause one can’t simply just go hungry or stick to McDonald’s. Some popular Grenadian dishes you’re recommended to try are Crab & Callaloo, Pepper pot, Curry Roti, and the national dish Ile dung/Oil down, which is a mixture of dasheen leaves, breadfruit, root vegetables, and salted pork cooked in coconut milk and spices.
And just as you’re offered mouth watering cuisine, the island also guarantees dining in style. Restaurants like Vastra Banken has everything on point, even keeping visitors a float while granting them a peaceful setting.
Indeed there’s a lot to partake in, but the one thing everyone should do when vacationing in the Caribbean is check out the beautiful sea. There’s nothing like it. Secluded or public, Grenada has it all.
There’s so much more than I’m unable to fit into a single post. My research was quite an eye opener because I knew nothing of the island before. All I can say is I’m definitely going there, will you?
