More Tips For Grenada
Some more useful tips to follow as we want visitors to be happy as well as safe on the island.
Grenada is a fairly safe country, but we all know that there aren’t any more Shangri-Las left in this world. To be on the safe side – then just take sensible precautions.

Don’t flash big bills or large amounts of money in public spaces.
Always keep an eye on your belongings. Be aware of your surroundings.
Try not to be alone, especially after dark and in isolated areas.
