  • The Reggae Busses

    I adored the Reggae buses that travel the length and breadth of Grenada.They have reggae music often pounding out, as they wind their way around their lovely island, knowing to within a millimetre the width and length of their bus. The drivers and fair collectors are lovely people, worth striking up a conversation if the bus is quiet. You can learn...

  • DRIVING IS ON THE LEFT

    Driving on the island of Grenada is on the left. Roads are paved and in good condition. If you have never driven on the left, this is not too bad a place to try. Keep you speed down, especially around the many steep curves. There are not a lot of lines on the roads, so watch for oncoming cars.You must obtain a local driving permit from either the...

  • Take a taxi

    I'm probably wrong about this, but I can't recall any busses at all at Grenada. Easiest for us, when we wanted to go somewhere on land, was to take a taxi. There are both normal cabs, and then those big mini vans. Most of them sure doesn't look very modern, but they will take you wherever you want to go. Roads aren't so good that you can go fast...

  • Good Driver!

    Matthew Thomas taxi from the Calabash Hotel in St. Georges, was a great driver. He was there whenever we needed him. He provided us with his card which showed his cell phone number. Friendly and informative and always on call. One of the few drivers we could understand too!

  • Water Taxi

    A water taxi will take you from downtown to the beach at Gran Anse for US$2. Bus is cheaper, but the water route is more scenic. Here is the boatman gesturing as he tells of the Hurricane Ivan which hit the island in 2004, and took with him most of the roofs.

    Public transport (buses) is existing but they are not really 'quick' and reliable.Renting a car is the option we chose, but they are bloody expensive !!!! Still it's the best way to tour the island if you don't have much time. A 4-wheel drive is highly recommended and there's almost only such cars to rent anyway.

    If you can't get a direct flight, remember Grenada is less than 40 minutes transfer (by Dash 8) from either Port of Spain (Trinidad) or Grantly Adams (Barbados)Everyday - use the buses, great value, go everywhere - and a bit hair-raising at times!Try to hire a 4x4 and explore for a day or two. The rainforests and banana plantations are fantastic,...

    The best way to Grenada is by American Airlines which has one flight a day to the island from Miami. If not, then come by cruise ship but you need more than 6 hours on the Carenage to see Grenada. At customs you need to be able to tell them where exactly you will be staying and for how long. Bring a hat, cool clothes, and a swim suit.Rent a car is...
