Have you ever wondered whether you could afford to visit the Caribbean? Below is our financial spend on our journey around Grenada in April 2017. Check out what we did during the nine days and nights we explored Grenada.

Assumptions

  • The costs are based upon a couple travelling together.
  • We did not travel as part of an organised tour but as individual travelers.
  • Not considered is the entry or exit transport into/out of the country.
