Our handwritten guide on Backpacking Grenada

Grenada is an island country in the small archipelago of the Grenadines, in the southern Caribbean Sea. It consists of itself and six smaller islands. It is located northwest of Trinidad and Tobago, northeast of Venezuela, and southwest of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines. The capital of Grenada is St George’s, which is also the largest city. On the main island of Grenada, other large settlements include Grenville and Gouyave. The only other large settlement is Hillsborough, on the island of Carriacou. There is a high speed ferry between Hillsborough and St. George’s.

The Maurice Bishop International Airport is in St. George’s; it has flights to and from Toronto, London, New York, and Miami, with seasonal flights from Atlanta and Frankfurt. Renting a car will be the best way to get around the island, but with a decent transport infrastructure, you can opt for taking the bus if you prefer.

The currency in Grenada is the East Caribbean dollar, but US dollars are widely accepted. It’s main economies are spice exporting and tourism. Grenada is known as the spice island for its production of nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves, and mace; it is the world’s second largest exporter of nutmeg. The centre of tourism in Grenada is the southwest region, nearest to St. George and the white sand beaches. Ecotourism is growing, with an emphasis on sustainable tourism and eco-friendly resorts.

French settlers founded a colony on Grenada in 1649 and ceded the islands to the British in the Treaty of Paris, in 1763. They recaptured the island in the American Revolution and ceded to the British again in 1783 in the Treaty of Versailles. Grenada achieved independence from the Crown in 1974 and was invaded by the United States in 1983 in response to a coup. The US withdrew in December 1983 and since then there has been a democratic election process, although Grenada remains a Commonwealth country.

The climate in Grenada is tropical. The rainy season occurs from June to November and the climate is dry much of the rest of the year. There are few hurricanes. The geography is mountainous, having been formed by volcanoes, and the highest point is only 843m tall. Thanks to this volcanic foundation, the soil is fertile which helps achieve the sugarcane, nutmeg, and other crop production that the country is known for. Otherwise, Grenada has the picturesque white sand beaches, lush green jungles, and sparkling waterfalls.

Budget accommodation in Grenada is rare, as it is in most of the Caribbean. Traditional hostels are rare, so instead of hostels, search for guesthouses or bed and breakfasts. Accommodation and dining in the Caribbean tend to be on the more expensive side, but you can travel for cheaper here if you really put your mind to it. Keep in mind that you may be further from town if you choose a very cheap place - and will end up spending that saved money on a taxi or bus into town. Once you have your accommodation sorted, explore the island! Grenada is full of both French and British architecture, Caribbean and Indian culture, and Afro-Carib music, dancing, and food. Hikers should explore the Grand Etang National Park for the waterfalls and swimming holes.

Grenada is less crowded than some other Caribbean islands and worth visiting; whatever you choose to do here, you will enjoy every moment!
