» Photo Galleries » Carnival » Grenada » 2018

All Jab.. Walk Out. Crazy People.. March Out. Real Jab.. Walk Out.

Nine years later, and Grenada Carnival aka Spicemas is still the "Home of 100,000 Jab Jabs." And please don't argue otherwise, especially with a Grenadian. They own J'Ouvert. Spicemas offers all of the key elements of a great Destination Carnival - two day parade, j'ouvert, boat rides, all inclusives, concerts, lots of fetes and a beautiful island filled with some of the warmest people and best beaches in the world. Let's dive in.

GENERAL INFORMATION

 

Duration

Wednesday to Wednesday. A full week in Grenada is ideal for Spicemas. Don't have vacation days to spare? You can arrive as late as Friday and leave anytime after Pretty Mas on the Carnival Tuesday and experience an action packed long weekend.

Parade Day / Last Lap

Grenada Carnival Monday and Tuesday is the second Monday and Tuesday in August.

Currency

The official currency is the Eastern Caribbean dollar (EC$ or XCD). 2.70 East Caribbean Dollars = 1 United States Dollar.

Temperature

Daily high temperatures are around 86°F/30°C, rarely falling below 83°F/28°C or exceeding 88°F/31°C. Daily low temperatures are around 78°F/26°C, rarely falling below 76°F/24°C or exceeding 80°F/27°C during the month of August.

Electricity / Voltage

Walk with your universal travel adapters. Grenada uses 220v, so you need a step down transformer to use any US 110v or non dual voltage device.

Best places to stay

The carnival and activities are mainly based in the island's capital of St. George. World famous beaches, Grand Anse Beach and Morne Rouge (BBC) Beach, are located on this end of the isle as well. On a budget, stay at a guesthouse or apartment or book on Airbnb. Feel like spoiling yourself, stay at the Spice Island Beach Resort - Grenada's only recipient of the coveted AAA Five Diamond Award.

Communication / Mobile Providers

FLOW (TJJ recommended) and Digicel pre-paid sim cards can be purchased locally.

Transportation

There are few ways of getting around on the island. If you don't have a local friend to rely on, taxis or car rental is your next best bet. Rental runs around US$50/day plus US$12 for the local driver license. For taxis, it's always a good idea to first find out how much for the trip before getting in. Want the real Grenadian experience? Jump on a local bus.

Flights

Maurice Bishop International Airport (GND) is where you will arrive, and if you're continuing on to the sister Isle of Carriacou, have only a short hop by inter-island charter to Lauriston Airport.

FOOD AND DRINKS

 

Cost of a 2 Piece Combo

EC$16 / US$5.90. Using our KFC global standard, a 2 Pc. Chicken Combo, which includes individual side & medium drink, cost $5.99 in the US.

Late Night Eats

Hit up Wall Street. Usually the vendors with long lines have the good stuff.

TJJ Favourite Restaurants

Carib Sushi – Le Marquis Complex, St. George's.
Junction Bar & Grill – L'ance Aux Epines (right opposite to The Brewery). We were walking distance and the burgers were lashing.

Local Food

Creole Shack – Melville Street, St. George's.
Deyna's Tasty Foods – Melville Street, St. George's.

Local Drinks

The Brewery, located about a mile in from the entrance of L'ance Aux Epines, has the widest selection of beers & ciders in Grenada. Get the t-shirt!

Alcohol purchase

Duty free in available in airport. Also Duty Free Caribbean located in Esplanade Mall on Melville Street carries the best known names in liquor at attractive duty free prices.
