For many years, Grenada has been known…

For years, we’ve always wanted a Caribbean vacation and as retirees, my wife and I wanted it to be as quiet as possible. In September of 2011, we decided to experience Grenada and what an experience it was. We had the best time of our lives. Some days we lazed around on the beach, other days we went sailing but our most memorable experience was the Adventure River Tubing on the Balthazaar River. The twists and turns from the currents and the view from the river are simply amazing, and everyone should do this at least once.

‘Tanya Log’ porridge, Fish Friday Festival, a nutmeg print dress, the Spice Basket and the turtle watching in Levera and lazing off on Paradise Beach in Carriacou are just a few reasons why I’ll continue to visit the Spice Islands. Simply Amazing!

If you’re a party animal, then you just have to experience Grenada’s Spice Mas Festival in August! That Soca Monarch Competition and J’ouvert morning had the most amount of energy I’ve ever seen in any one location. Although I was originally born in the Caribbean, I had never heard of 2 jouverts in one country, and the locals never seemed to get tired. You see them playing Jab Jab on Monday morning, fancy mas on Monday afternoon, Monday night Mas later that night and on the road again on Tuesday morning. When I asked one guy if he had time to sleep, he said “we’ll sleep when the Carnival is over.” Ha ha!
We had many first experiences in Grenada. We were never greeted with fruit juice, saltfish souse and bakes upon arrival at any airport before. It was also the first time we dived an underwater sculpture park and had our names printed on a jute bag at a nutmeg station. The entire vacation was incredible and we have so many memories that we must go back there.
