Doing the Locomotive in San Juan de Los Remedios

The book brought back memories of some of my own caribbean travels, making for some interesting comparisons. Jason’s […]

More Rudeness in Grenada: Deyna’s Tasty Foods Disgusting Customer Service

Deyna’s Tasty Foods Disgusting Customer Service followed on from an appalling Grenada airport welcome. We decided to eat like the locals and pop into a restaurant/cafe in the hustle and bustle of St George.

Welcome to Grenada! Rude Staff at Maurice Bishop International Airport.

After long flight, rude staff at Maurice Bishop International Airport is the last thing you need.

A small quiet caribbean island, physically separate from Trinidad. An island for relaxation, bird watching, rainforest hiking and beach lounging. At certain time of the year, in line with breeding cycles, turtle watching becomes a major attraction. Be certain to take strong insect repellent, the strongest you can get your hands on. You will certainly […]
