Grenada sits amongst the the very least highly-priced islands in the Caribbean. and there are a good deal of neighborhood markets where by you can get fruit and greens fairly low-priced. There are some eating places that obviously goal travellers and the selling prices are effortlessly 3 or 4 instances a lot more pricey than in which the locals eat.
Accommodation could consume your travel spending plan if you continue to be at the significant resorts. Luckily, there are some less expensive options obtainable. A few of spending plan guesthouses in St George and some Cocoa Farms in the north of the key island are the finest options for all those traveling on a spending plan.
Transportation is incredibly affordable. There are two options: taxis or minivans. The first kinds are high priced and predominantly for vacationers whilst the next kinds are inexpensive and employed by the locals. There is a single primary road heading all over the significant island so most of the minivans do the very same route. You only have to stay by the aspect of the road and flag down everyone going in the desired direction. The fares are among 1 and 5 EC, dependent on how far you are likely.

I arrived to Saint Lucia with the notion on my head that funds journey was likely to be tough listed here. The island is a popular vacation spot for cruise ships or sailboats, but not at all for backpackers. While, it can be the identical predicament in most of the islands in this component of the Caribbean.
The very good news is the travel charges in Saint Lucia can be lowered to a minimum amount substantially a lot easier than in other nations of the Caribbean. Spending plan guesthouses can be found for as very little as 18-20 USD in Castries, there are a handful of very well-priced and very well-stocked supermarkets and transport in minivans is fairly affordable. Not way too terrible if you are backpacking on a spending budget.
Situated among the French Antilles, with Martinique to the south and Guadeloupe to the north, the island of Dominica is a great deal more spending budget vacation welcoming than its neighbours.
Existence is more simple here. There are hardly any resorts and the tourists who visit the region are right after climbing or diving prospects rather than beach-combing. The geography of the island is pretty unique to the other spots in the space. The terrain is really rugged and wild making the transportation to operate slower than usual (even for Caribbean expectations!). Prices in general are pretty reasonably priced. There are plenty of markets and camping opportunities are widely accessible.
Saint Vincent and The Grenadines
St Vincent and The Grenadines are definitely built for sailors with their individual boat. For the regular traveller, you are limited to a number of islands and the minimal possibilities available in terms of lodging and food stuff. The prices depend on which island you are at. St Vincent is by much the cheapest, followed by Union and potentially Bequia. Immediately after these 3, the choices for accommodation and food are so confined that commonly benefits in a appreciable improve of the price ranges. The good news is, it is probable to travel by means of The Grenadines on little nearby boats. It is really affordable. You will only have to have time and tolerance.
