"After Seven Sisters Falls and Gouyave, we knew that the island would not have much to offer. We could have gone to Grenville, but the Caribbean cities all look pretty the same, so we decided against a two-hour journey in a stuffy van to see yet another average town. All in all, we were a little bit disappointed by the Caribbean trip. There are few nice views that we associate with the Caribbean landscape. There is filth everywhere and not much to do but sun bathing."

How is this helpful?

Wow, I'm sorry you found Grenada disappointing. I personally have found it to be one of the loveliest islands in the Caribbean, starting with the wonderful people and moving on from there. I'll admit that, at first glance, there is some squalor to be found in the islands -- they are limited by geography, after all, and don't have the same infrastructure and resources that many "first world" places do. But at the same time, they have a wealth of natural bounty that many of us find simply irresistible. I've been to Grenada myself 4 times, and choose to vacation in the Caribbean every chance I get; each experience is more and more satisfying to me.

That said, the Caribbean is not for everyone (and it's a good thing ... otherwise it would be too crowded!)
