The Island of Spices marks another notch for Christopher Columbus' discoveries, but over the years Grenada has evolved into plenty more than just a historical notation. Book cheap vacations to Grenada and step into colourful St. George where you will find steep, narrow streets that open up to stunning waterfront vistas and nightclubs that stay open all night, filled with locals and tourists alike. Outdoor activities abound, including hiking, sailing, and biking, to name just a few. Scuba diving is a sightseeing adventure in Moilinere Bay where you can explore underwater sculptures and plenty of shipwrecks, or stick to the shore and travel back in time to 17th century plantation life on the Belmont Estate, where plenty of the world's best cocoa is still produced.
If the quiet life is what you're looking for, sail away from Grenada's main island and head north to the smaller isles of Carriacou and the appropriately named Petit Martinique, where you will find all the scenic beauty of Grenada with no touristy vibes whatsoever. Whether you're planning to explore crater lakes at Grand Etange Nature Reserve, visit majestic forts dating back to the French and British colonial era, or stock up on nutmeg and cloves from the local spice gardens, grab one of FlightNetwork®'s great package deals and get going.
It's a great idea to opt for a European plan when booking a holiday package to Grenada. The country's unique cuisine has an infusion of locally-grown spices, as well as European and Caribbean influences. Sampling the food here will be one of the highlights of any visitor's trip, so why miss out by having all your meals in the confines of a single hotel? Eating at smaller restaurants and cafes will help you cut back on your travel budget and use the extra dollars you save to spend a few more days in the sun.
Spending most of your time on the smaller islands of Carriacou and Petit Martinique will save you big bucks on hotel expenses. By all means spend a couple of days in a luxury resort on the main island. But move to cheaper digs on the other islands for the remainder of your trip and enjoy seaside views that are just as spectacular, for only a fraction of the cost.
Dependably good weather is one of the big reasons why Grenada is such a popular vacation spot. Throughout the year, the temperature rarely varies out of the warm haven of 25-30°C. Keep in mind that June to November is when Grenada receives most of its rain and considering that the country has experienced two hurricanes in the last decade, it's a good idea to check the weather advisory before booking Grenada vacations during this time.
Predictably, the Carnival period in August as well as the dry season from December to April are when most tourists visit, and this is also when flights and hotels are most expensive. But you could book discount package deals in the shoulder season from mid-November to mid-December or in May, and still get to enjoy warm temperatures without the rain, and the benefit of deep discounts across the travel board.
