The average temperature in Grenada is 28 degrees Celsius, which is ideal for going to the Grand Etang National Park for a hike. Who knows? You might even spot iguanas, osprey and herons when you’re out and about.

It ranks #53 out of 152 on Speedtest, so again, the internet speed should be pretty decent.

The same could be said for the lower living costs. Numbeo has these figures:

  • Three-course meal for two at mid-range restaurant: 215.62EC$ (£64.37)
  • 1 litre regular milk: 5.02EC$ (£1.50)
  • 500g loaf of fresh white bread: 4.07EC$ (£1.20)
  • One-way ticket on public transport: 3.00EC$ (90p)
  • Basics for an 85m2 flat: 471.95EC$ (£141) per month
  • One-bedroom flat in city centre: 1,764.31EC$ (£527) per month

Traditional menus in Grenada feature bakes and fishcakes (fishcake sandwiched in fried bread); oil down (salted meat, callaloo, breadfruit, other vegetables steamed in coconut milk); and pelau (chicken, rice, peas, carrots, coconut milk and caramelised brown sugar). For afters, try nutmeg ice cream or a rum punch.

Speaking of which, Grenada is dubbed as Spice Island, rich in nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves and vanilla. It also boasts a booming chocolate industry with boutique shops on the island.
