Grenada is a country and an island in the Caribbean.

Grand Etang National Park

In the center of Grenada lies the Grand Etang National Park. You can drive directly to a lake and there are several trails through tropical jungle scenery. I hiked for about an hour to the Mount Qua Qua and I saw free-living monkeys.

St George

In the capital St George is the Fort George on the mountain with a beautiful view of the harbor. The Grenada Museum was well laid out and I walked along the harbor.

Travel Tips

Planning

  • I was for 4 days on Grenada:
    • Day 1: Arrival by plane from Barbados.
    • Day 2: I hiked in the morning in the Grand Etang National Park and was in St George in the afternoon.
    • Day 3: Relaxed.
    • Day 4: Departure by plane to Port of Spain (Trinidad and Tobago).
  • I used for my planning and can recommend the Lonely Planet for the Caribbean Islands.

Transport

  • Getting there:
    • There is an international airport.
    • Cruise ships
    • Island hopping across several islands from Saint Vincent and the Grenadines.
  • Budget transport on Barbados:
    • There are minibusses with bus numbers.
    • Buses run every few minutes between the airport and the capital St George.
    • From St George are minibusses in all directions.
    • I paid between 3 EC (1 €) and 5 EC (1.66 €) per bus ride.

Accommodation

  • I found the most budget accommodation on AirBNB.
  • I can recommend as location the capital St George or on the way to the airport. It’s centrally located and you can explore the rest of the island cost-effective with buses.
  • I stayed in an AirBNB (Authentic Grenadian Experience) in walking distance to the airport. Nearby minibusses drove to the capital every few minutes. The accommodation was clean and I had a well-equipped kitchen.
