Buses in Grenada: A cultural enchantment!
Here is a low-cost wonder! A holiday in Grenada is incomplete without at least one bus trip. These mini-buses zip about everywhere, and you will not be able to ignore them. For EC$2.50 a ride you will learn a lot about the spirit and culture of this wonderful country. Leave your room and walk out of the Allamanda and immediately you are on the Number 1 bus route. A honk of a horn, a shout from the bus conductor – “You going up?” – and if you show any sign of agreement you are on and on your way to St George’s, Grenada’s gorgeous capital. Reggae and Soca blasts out of the sound system on-board, as you cruise along the very pretty road into town. Tap on the roof to ask to get off and you can spend your day exploring this spectacular town. Get off at the Carenage and stroll around the lovely horseshoe-shaped harbour. Spend ages nosing around pretty streets and winding alleys dripping in culture, history and fabulous Caribbean buildings. You must visit the Grenada National Museum. Here you will find information and excellent displays portraying Grenada’s amazing history. There are exhibits showing the early inhabitants of the island, and detailing the incredible changes in the control of the country. Learn about the Amerindians, and how Grenada was fought over for centuries by France and Britain. Browse artifacts and texts showing the agricultural development and how the world came to depend on the produce from “The Isle of Spice”. Entrance to the museum is EC$5 per adult, or EC$2.50 per child.
You could spend your whole holiday on the No 1 bus going to St George’s and back. Take an early morning bus on a Saturday and visit the incredible Saturday Market. Here all manner of tropical vegetables and fruit are on sale. The vendors are very happy to educate you on the huge variety of produce that is available in this fertile island. You will almost certainly discover food you have never seen before! Whilst in St George’s you should try out some of the excellent local restaurants. Grenadian food is absolutely delicious and very healthy.
From the bus station in St George’s there are buses that travel to virtually the whole island. After 7pm the buses become less frequent, and stop around 9pm.
