What a paradise one finds when moving to Grenada, but paradise can come with challenges. The beauty of the island is unmatched, so anyone looking for rolling hills, swaying palm trees, and crystal blue water lapping on white beaches will love it! If you’re planning on living here, though, you need to know that your appreciation for the beauty can be interrupted by the following:

Banks close at 2:00 PM. Do your banking early.
It’s difficult to reach anyone on the phone at the government. Go in person.

The Port may close at 4:00 PM, but the cashier closes at 3:30. Don’t learn this the hard way like I did.

Don’t be afraid to ask for help. Grenadians are VERY helpful. No need for AAA or CAA car insurance here.

When moving to St. George’s, and the Caribbean in general, one should be ready for no central heating or air conditioning! Unless you are living in an apartment complex, most houses only have ceiling fans installed. The rare house or two will come with air conditioning but it is usually confined to the bedrooms. The rest of the house is usually kept open throughout the day for it to stay cool.

Before moving to St, George’s, it’s imperative to understand that most of the nightlife, is centered around the south. Understanding this, will allow them to plan more effectively for their outings. For example, during the midday hours, the city center is a hub for locals to work, shop, and carry out other daily necessities. but being an island that is heavily invested and focused on tourism, when the afternoon comes, and it’s times to relax or simply meet up for a quiet dinner, party, or get together, the action quickly swings to the south, where almost all the pleasantries of a modern Caribbean paradise can be found.

St. Georges is the capital of the island of Grenada. It is home to SGU – St. George’s University which has various academic courses, on of them being a top rated School of Medicine. St. Georges is also a very picturesque city. We have The Carenage which is an inner harbour. The best way to enjoy the bright sea green colours of the Carnage is to drive around the harbour on a clear sunny day.
