In 2008 and 2010, we enjoyed the beaches, the colorful fruit and vegetable markets, the Carnival, and celebrating with the locals on the Caribbean island of Grenada. For nearly 3 full months, we lived like a local: buying our food from the markets, using the same transportation, eating the same foods and hiking to waterfalls in the high mountains. It was wonderful, especially for our children to be so immersed in the culture. Grenada is safe for tourists, the beaches are beautiful, the sailing is wonderful, the people are friendly, the island is historical and the nature on the island is fascinating. All this and much more make it one of the best islands in the Caribbean for families.

This video gives a glimpse into our time there. Enjoy!
