With lush rainforests, scenic mountains, relaxing sandy beaches, and exotic reefs, it is the quintessential Caribbean holiday destination.
Getting to the island is easy, as there are regular flights to and from Grenada. If you are a US citizen, you do not need a visa to visit Grenada. However, you will require a valid US passport.
Interacting with the locals is also easy as English is the official language of Grenada. However, most locals speak Creole English, which is a mix of many African dialects, English, and French.
Grenada is also known as the ‘Spice Island’, because of the myriad fragrant spices, like cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, etc. that grow in its fertile volcanic soil. While in Grenada, one can sense the aroma of nutmeg wafting through the air.
