Caribbean Airlines has just made it easier for Canadians to travel to Grenada. As it isn’t overly touristy, I would like it to stay that way, so don’t tell everyone about this.
As a travel writer, I am able to visit beautiful destinations worldwide. Out of everywhere I have traveled in the last few years, Grenada remains a personal favourite. I would return to Grenada in a heartbeat for fish Fryday, the beaches, the food, and the incredibly friendly locals.
Did I mention the spice market? Grenada is known as “Spice island” with spices playing a major role in the bustling, colorful market in Grenada’s capital of St. George’s. The stalls are crammed together, but the vendors are friendly and will offer cooking suggestions if you ask.
According to Director of tourism for the Grenada Board of Tourism, Simon Stiell, “the Canadian market is the fourth largest worldwide” and added “We are thrilled by the recent announcement of these new flights and hope that many more Canadians have the opportunity to come and spent time with us as a result.”
For Canadians looking for that perfect winter getaway, getting to Grenada is just the ticket. Beginning December 15th, 2011, Caribbean Airlines will have a new direct flight (Thursdays and Sundays) between St. George’s, Grenada and Toronto. This recently announced deal with Caribbean Airlines will run from December 15th, 2011 to March 10th, 2012 and will provide visitors with one more way to get to Grenada.
The Island of Grenada, a part of the Windward Islands in the Eastern Caribbean, is an idyllic getaway to a true tropical paradise. White sand beaches, turquoise waters, lush jungle and friendly locals make this the perfect place to escape to.
