Living and travelling Villas in grenada
Grenada for over a yr has given us valuable insight into the country and its people, activities, meals and culture. This is a true Caribbean jewel. Shut your eyes and try to conjure up images of white sand beaches, turquoise waters, lush jungles, lovely flowers and smiling people. Now scent the aroma of delicious street barbecues, feel the refreshing cool water of a hidden waterfall, hear the melodic tune of metal pan, and taste aromatic curries and sweet tropical fruits.
This is Grenada. It’s the epitome of that tropical paradise that you have in your thoughts… minus the crowds, the associated fee and the hassle.
Sorry price range travellers, as with most nations in the Caribbean, this will not be a destination that's easy on your wallet, however don’t fear, there are methods you could really cut down in your expenses. It's authorized to camp and cook on beaches right here, you possibly can hitch hike easily, there are some low cost avenue meals, local transport is affordable, and you can even get between islands by hitching on sailboats.
In case you are visiting Grenada on a total budget and observe the above limitations day by day, you could most likely get by on $50 / day for a couple. Just know that hotel rooms are expensive, meals at eating places common about $15 USD, and taxis are comparable in price to those in Europe and North America (although half/full day taxi hire is an efficient worth).
Budget Accommodation: (Average $100 / night)
We had our accommodation costs covered in Grenada because we had been house sitting, but we’ve looked at quite a few hotels, and a budget finish of the spectrum will price no less than $90 / night.
There are some cheaper hotels on the island (round $50), but they’re not in Grand Anse or St. George’s area (the place you’ll in all probability wish to spend most of your time), so you’d must rent a car or take a 30 – 60 minute minibus experience each day.
You probably have the cash, we advocate Mount Cinnamon Grenada, which is a beautiful boutique hotel right on Grand Anse Beach. They include numerous activities and have 2 implausible eating places as well.
There are some scrumptious street meals and quick snacks to be present in Grenada. Rotis may be purchased for around 10EC ($3.25 USD), barbecue chicken for beneath $four USD, and a few low-cost, side of the road eateries can serve up a full meal for round $5 – 7 USD. Just know that if you are eating in ocean-side eating places or bars, will probably be hard to discover a meal for less than $10 – $15 USD.
