Info re: Grenada

Jump to last reply

Please write with info re: Secret Harbor/ Rex/ Coyaba/ Calabash. Is the Island comprable to St. Lucia as far as beauty and greenery? Is dining out everyday going to cost us a lot?

    The island is lush and quite beautiful. I really can't compare it to St. Lucia bcuz I've never been there. My top 2 choices were Grenada and St. Lucia. However, Grenada won out due to it being less commercially developed and having better beaches. I would highly recommend the Coyaba. The grounds are very nicely landscaped. As soon as you walk out of your room the scent of flowers is everywhere. The staff was friendly and quite helpful. Grand Anse beach is very nice. There are some vendors but a firm no thank you and they were gone. It was never crowded while I was there. We ate most days at the Tropicana which was a 10 minute ride by bus (minivan@40 cents/person). The fish (mostly tuna) was wonderful as well as the local juices (Tamarind, Golden Apple, Mango, etc.) and you've got to try the West Indian version of chow mein. I'd say it was about $10 to $13/person which wasn't bad. We also tried the Le Chateau, about 2 blocks from Coyaba. It was pretty good (curry chicken) for about $10. Grenada is a great place. Be sure to get out and explore the island. If you're thinking about doing any touring, I have a friend there who does an outstanding job as quite reasonable prices. Feel free to contact me by e-mail for more info on that. The greenery is spectacular and we were there 5 months into the "dry season". Good luck!
