Arriving in Grenada

Which airport should I fly into?

Maurice Bishop International Airport

What travel documentation do I need?

A valid passport is required for all passengers including infants. If you have questions about this requirement or are a citizen of another country, call 1 473-440-2279 (Grenada Tourism Authority).

If you are visiting our islands, you must have a valid passport and return or onward ticket. However, if you are a British, Canadian, or US citizen, proof of citizenship bearing a photograph is acceptable. Please remember, however, that as mandated by the United States Department of Homeland Security, all US travelers must provide a passport to enter or reenter the US for both vacation and business travel.

A visa is not required for citizens of the US, Canada, UK, British Commonwealth, South Korea, Japan, and most Caribbean and European countries. It may be best to familiarize yourself with the complete list of persons requiring visas and persons exempt from visas.

How do I get to GrenadaAirbnbs vacation rental from the airport?

A private air-conditioned vehicle with a personal driver will be waiting for you on arrival (note: for week-long and 5-day stays). The drive to all of our vacation rentals is about 20 minutes and is a wonderful first introduction to the island.

We recommend you travel with some small change if you require a porter as Airport Carts are not allowed outside the Terminal Building. The cost is about US$1 per bag.

About Grenada

What is the weather like?

Grenada enjoys typical Caribbean weather: Average temperatures range from 75 degrees F to 85 degrees F (24 degrees C to 30 degrees C), with a cool breeze. The lowest temperatures occur between November and February. Although the climate is warm all year round, we do experience some seasonal changes depending on altitude. The dry season is between January and May and the rainy season is from June to December.

What currency should I use and is there a nearby ATM?

US dollars are accepted island-wide. Hotels and car rental companies accept major credit cards. Traveler’s cheques are accepted throughout the island. Our local currency is the Eastern Caribbean dollar (EC) but the US Dollar is accepted.

Banks will exchange EC$2.67 for US$1.00 cash and EC$2.68 for US$1.00 in traveler’s cheques. We advise that you exchange currency at banks, as lower exchange rates may not be found elsewhere (EC$2.50 for US$1.00).

Is Grenada safe?

Very safe. (US Grenada Travel Advisory) Use the same caution in Grenada that you would use in any large city. If you choose to bring jewelry, cash, etc., the vacation rental has lockable in-room safes for your valuables.

Will my cell phone work?

Take your U.S. cell phone. It will probably work. To be sure, call your provider to ask whether your cell will work in Grenada and if you have an international plan. You might consider going into the settings of your smartphone and turning off “cellular data” and only using Wifi to make Facetime and other internet-based calls. There is Wifi at all GrenadaAirbnbs vacation rentals.

What should I expect?

Grenada is truly a world away. Its natural beauty is breathtaking and its people charming and laid back. Time slows down. To enjoy your time on the island, you must come prepared for this. Learn more about why you’ll fall in love with St. Georges, Grenada.

During Your Stay in St. Georges

How will I get around once I get settled at the vacation rental?

A full-time driver and 12-passenger van are available during your stay:

  • dedicated licensed driver/tour guide
  • airport transfers both ways
  • anywhere/anytime service*
  • 1 tank of gas (additional gas paid by guests)

*Long-distance trips require an additional fee.

How do I shop for groceries and pay for food during my stay?

Most of our guests like to stop at one of the big grocery stores on their way from the airport so that they can personally stock up on the things that they want for their stay.

If stopping at the store is not something that you want to do, GrenadaAirbnbs staff can also stock the first day’s food (lunch, dinner, and breakfast) based on instructions you provide on our Guest Arrival Information Form. Our staff can also shop for you every few days, as needed. You and your guests may also decide to shop at the grocery store once you have gotten settled from your travels.

If you wish to go to the various markets or grocery stores, you are welcome to do so (grocery stores accept major credit cards, but they will likely need to see identification such as a passport).

Please be prepared to pay for your groceries with cash unless otherwise arranged. Both US and EC dollars are accepted.

You can ask your driver to help find whatever reasonable food or drink item you might need during your stay but know that certain things are hard to find in Grenada like you would find in the U.S., Canada, or Europe.

What is there to see and do during my stay in St. Georges?

For those of us who are active, an abundance of water sports, tours, and scenic walks are also accessible in St. Georges, including snorkeling, kayaking, windsurfing, water skiing, and sailing.

There are many fun and interesting places to explore:

Belmont Estate & The Grenada Chocolate Company: The Belmont Estate stands as just one of Grenada’s many popular spice tours for those interested in learning about the island nation’s rich flavors. This 300-year-old plantation specializes in such spices as ginger, pimento, turmeric, and nutmeg. While visiting the estate, you can see how these spices are processed, and wander through the 400-acre property’s gardens, museum, and goat milk farm.

Grand Etang National Park & Forest Reserve: You can only spend so many hours lounging on the beach before you start to get restless; when that time comes, stretch your legs along the hiking trails in Grand Etang National Park & Forest Reserve. Occupying a large portion of central Grenada Island, Grand Etang teems with exotic wildlife. Its full-time residents include armadillos, mona monkeys, and tropical mockingbirds. You’re sure to encounter these magnificent creatures and more as you explore popular areas as Mount Qua Qua—known for its stunning views of the park—and the beautiful Grand Etang Lake.

Visit the Grenada National Museum: The Grenada National Museum; in addition to the exhibits, it also hosts weekly cultural performances and outdoor lunches. The museum is sectioned off into various parts that reflect the content inside. These include Slavery, Plantation Economy, and Whaling & Fishing Archaeology. Interestingly enough, this museum has once housed a prison, barracks, hotels, and even a warehouse – its history is very rich!.
