    Hurricane?

    by Ash59 Written Feb 25, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: We went in October which is, theoretically, in the hurricane season. Luckily, we only had rain on 3 days out of the 6 that we spent on this wonderful island and each downpour did not last for more than an hour. Anyway, the last hurricane that hit Grenada was back in 1954. However, the point of telling you this is that, if you go in the rainy season, you may want to take an umbrella. Seems a weird item to take to a place that has a minimum temperature of 75 degrees faranheit, even in the rain, but it can be useful if the place that you are staying at does not provide them.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Mosquito repellant, although it may be used to other flying insects away more than mosquitos'.

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: During the day it is perfectly o.k. to wear shorts and tee shirts. Most eating places expect long trousers and shirts to be worn for evening meals.

    It's hot...

    by Henrik_rrb Written Feb 5, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Luggage and bags: ... so don't bring too much clothes. And definitely no warm ones. At the maximum you can get one tropical rain every day, and normally it lasts for less than five minutes. Then it goes back to +35 degrees again. So, shorts, a t-shirt is basicly all you need.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Use light shoes, as you otherwise will get very warm feet... If you want to go tracking in the rainforest, bring other shoes for that, as it's quite muddy. And if you stay on a boat, remember to take off your shoes and don't use them onboard as you might bring some bugs from the beach/city to the boat. And you don't want to do that...

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Sunscreen!!!! We, nine pale swedes, started with sunscreen number 45, 50 for the face. After a week we went down to 30, and then to 15. Last three days I went without any protection, although that is probably not anything I would recommened to one and everyone... Remember we stayed on a boat out in the ocean a lot of the time, so if you'll only stay on land you could maybe start with 30 instead, but watch your skin!

    Photo Equipment: There are so much to take photos of at Grenada, so make sure to bring big memory cards, or rolls, if you have that sort of camera. There are quite many photo shops in Grenada, although not very modern. So don't expect to find the newest camera equipment here... Photo rolls are sold in the supermarkets though.

    Packing for a one day cruise ship stop

    by Dabs Written Feb 28, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: If you plan on going to any of the falls where they allow you to swim, bring a swimsuit and a towel

    If you are going hiking to anything more strenuous than Annandale Falls, you'll want to bring shoes with good treads, they suggest hiking boots for longer walks, closed toe sandals for medium range walks and sandals with straps for shorter trips. I was fine with strapped sandals for Seven Sisters but they were very muddy when I was done. White is not a good color to wear for the hike to Seven Sisters if it's rained recently

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Sunscreen is a must for me whenever traveling to warm destinations, the few spots I missed were as red as a tomato

    Miscellaneous: Bring extra money for entrance fees, tips, spices and rum

    Water, if not provided by your guide

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Clothing
    Casual, light cottons are ideal during the day; in the evenings, semi-formal attire is appropriate. Bathing suits or mini shorts should not be worn in the streets or stores. Long pants and hiking shoes are recommended for hiking.

    Luggage and bags: Pack light! A backpack or bag with shoulder strap is best. Rolling luggage will NOT help you here - You will be hopping on and off boats and docks, and the docks and roads are not smooth. Suggest One carry-on.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Minimum 2 bathing suits (you'll live in these, 1 to wear and 1 to dry), shorts, sandals. Buy your tee's there, they're cheap! And summer dresses are a steal in the Grenadine Islands. Shorts (not too short, they are modest people in these islands), water shoes/sandals are a must, tee's or clothing that breathes and dries quickly! Take a hat or hooded rainjacket that will pack small/light and go in your daypack. There are occasional burst of rain that are similar to standing in your shower. We even whipped out a bar of soap during one rainshower and stood on deck and lathered up. The rain is very refreshing and everything smells lovely following (especially those doing the lathering up!)!

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Sunscreen, Aloe Vera, bug repellent, bandaids for blisters.

    Miscellaneous: Take an immersion coil. Rooms do not usually include coffeemaker.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: If you are planning to go hiking, it's worth taking both Tevas (or the like) for the easy walks (especially for the waterfalls as it's great not having to change shoes and dry feet) and proper walking boots for the forests - which can be very, very muddy!

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Insect repellent for mosquitos and sandflies (around dusk)
