Below are my notes for visiting Grenada. These travel tips, such as the best time to visit Grenada are obtained from a variety of sources including some of the following: my first hand observations, personal conversations, magazines, newspapers, websites, books and so forth. Whenever I hear something that interests me about Grenada, I jot it down here. Hope this comes in handy.
Grenada consists of the namesake island as well as the southern portion of Grenandines, including the larger populated Grenandine island of Carriacou and the very small island of Petite Martinique.
Best Time to Visit Grenada
Short Answer: December to May
Longer Answer: The high (drier) season of Grenada runs from the end of December through April or so. Early December and May are good shoulder months. From somewhere in May to November or so, Grenada’s rainy season kicks in. In spite of the rainy season, the second week of August is the raucous party of Carnival.
Both air and water temperatures, generally, are similar all year round and so the big difference is the increase in rain (and occasional hurricane) that shows up in Grenada’s summer.
