Barbados vs Grenada

Jump to last reply

I've wanted to go to Grenada for a while, and everything seems to be getting in my way. My husband and I want to do a vacation rental through VRBO, home away etc... however it is a lot cheaper to go with an AI to the Rex resort in Grenada. To do a flight alone is over half the price of the vacation with everything included. A travel agent suggested Barbados. I've been looking into it some and it does look appealing. The flights are more frequent and we have found a couple of rentals that we like. I was just wondering if someone could tell me a bit more about the island from someone who goes there. I want some time at the beach to sit and swim relax. I was drawn to Grenada with the tours of the Nutmeg/cocoa farms (we are farmers), I also like history. We want an island that is not to busy, or one that if you want to go to some tourist trap you can but you can also get away from it as well. One that you can walk/ drive around and not be in the middle of traffic/ rat race all the time or go to the beach and have hundreds of people there with you too. Can anyone tell me if Barbados will fit the bill, thanks
