Forget about the 1983 US-led invasion that helped to quell a coup and think instead about the beautiful tropical locale that the island nation has to offer. Nestled deep in the Caribbean, Grenada is known as the “Island of Spice” for its production of nutmeg, ginger, cinnamon and cloves. Book your cheap flight to Grenada and sample the country’s pristine beaches, historic forts, and working spice estates.
As is the case in most Caribbean locales, Grenada’s tropical climate means it is coolest during the dry season (January-May) and warmer in the rainy season (June-December). It can still rain during the dry season but those rains usually last an hour or less.
The beginning and end of the dry season (January and May) are the ideal times to travel to Grenada.
Grenada is actually a chain of islands centered around three major islands: Grenada, Carriacou and Petit Martinique. Ferry services run between the three islands, or visitors can charter boats through their hotels or by visiting the Grenada Yacht Club. The natural beauty of the islands and the idyllic Caribbean surrounding is what makes a trip to Grenada, so island hopping is strongly recommended.
