With its warm weather, there really isn't a bad time to visit Grenada - temperatures average 29°C (84°F). The rainy season is June to November. Even in the driest months it rains a fair amount, though not every day. The second weekend in August is Carnival, the island's biggest and busiest event, so reserve accommodation in advance if you want to enjoy the festivities. Winter is prime fishing season and, accordingly, the Spice Island Billfish Tournament, which draws anglers from around North America and the Caribbean, is held annually in January.

An exotic, unspoiled hideaway, Sandals LaSource Grenada offers guests a romantic, authentic Caribbean vacation where everything is included.
Lauriston airport in Carriacou is a very modest affair with a single ticket counter for all flights.
Island hopping on the cargo boats that sail between Grenada, Carriacou and Petit Martinique is an adventurous and inexpensive way to travel. Departure times and dates are unscheduled and the best way to find out what's available is to ask around at the docks.
Buses are a great way to get around Grenada and Carriacou. These privately run minivans run a series of set, numbered routes crisscrossing the islands, and are inexpensive and fun - though often reaching madcap speeds, with drivers maniacally tooting their horn at friends and potential passengers as they go.
Taxi fares are regulated by the government, although sometimes you have to negotiate.
