At first I was disappointed in my order. Little did I realize the problem was caused by my own error. The Customer Service rep, who first addressed my issue, did not seem to address the issues. However, in a further exchange of emails, it was discovered where the problem was, in an error I made. Throughout the entire issue the customer service folks were courteous and helpful. The issue was finally resolved and the customer service people bent over backward to make sure I was satisfied. I am very pleased with the service I received

Top Road Trip Destinations in Grenada

From historic fortresses to stunning white-sand beaches, Grenada never disappoints when it comes to tourist attractions. The country has a lot to offer for people of different hobbies and interests, so visiting Grenada for a short time won’t be satisfying. Here are the top road trip destinations foreign visitors must never miss if they want an unforgettable trip to Grenada

Belmont Estate

Grenada is known as the Spice Isle, and its people surely don't take this name lightly. The Belmont Estate showcases everything you need to know about spice and cocoa. Established during the 1600s, the plantation is still standing strong and is a top tourist destination.

Foreign visitors can tour around the estate to see how chocolate is processed and visit the museum to learn more about the history and heritage of the place. Aside from this, guests can try out traditional creole dishes, drop by the petting zoo, make some crafts in the crafts' area, or buy some chocolate and spices from the gift shop. These aren’t the only activities foreign visitors can do, making Belmont Estate a fun place to go to.

Be sure to stop by Belmont Estate at the beginning of June, right before the Chocolate Festival is about to start. If you don’t like crowds, it’s best to avoid January to April. Just remember that September and October is the hurricane season, so you might not want to go during these months if you think some rain will spoil your trip.

Carenage

The Carenage is an inner harbor in St. George’s, the capital of Grenada. Taking a stroll along the busy and colorful streets of the Harbor is the perfect way to unwind and see a bit of Grenada.

Walking around the area, you’d get to appreciate the 19th-century French colonial-style buildings, markets, cafés, and shops that sell different herbs, spices, trinkets, and other Grenadian goods. The ideal time to visit the Carenage would be from December to April when rain is minimal, so you can fully enjoy a day out in the Harbor when it’s sunny and warm.

If your IDP has expired, you can always get a new one. Since IDA issues IDPs, you can apply for an International Driving Permit for Grenada.

IDA will be providing the application form, and all you have to do is fill in your name, contact number, and other details to get your international driving license for Grenada.

Suppose you’ve arrived in Grenada without an IDP. This won’t be a problem since applying for an IDP online means getting to receive a copy no matter where you are. Don’t forget, to guarantee the immediate shipment of your International Driving Permit to Grenada, your address in the country must be complete. Postal codes aren’t used on the island, so you may not include them in your address.

Fort Frederick

Drop by Fort Frederick to see one of the most popular historical sites in Grenada. The fortress sits atop a mountain and was built in 1779 by the French. It was then used by the British after reclaiming Grenada from the French themselves. Visitors who climb up to the fort can have a birds-eye view of the island, particularly the picturesque Carenage and the ocean.

Visitors can also go down and explore the tunnels at the base if they want to. Just be sure to bring some light as the area has no lighting. If you’re going to stroll around the fortress without rain dampening your trip, then make sure to visit Fort Frederick from December to April, as these months are usually sunny and have relatively less rainfall.

Don’t forget that Grenadian agencies and similar branches that issue IDPs cannot make your international driving license for Grenada.

Fort George

Built from 1706 to 1710, Fort George was built by the French and originally named Fort Royal; it was then changed into Fort George in honor of King George III after the British reclaimed Grenada. Currently, the fortress houses the Royal Grenada Police Force but has some open sections to the public.

Visitors can stroll around the viewing sections and take in the picturesque view of the island and the ocean. Canons along with specific landmarks are scattered around the fort, transporting guests back in time to early Grenada. If you want to drop by Fort George, make sure to visit during the dry seasons from December to April, so you can enjoy the spot when it isn’t pouring.

House of Chocolate

The House of Chocolate is a place sweet tooth and chocolate lovers would surely love to visit, as it has all things related to chocolate in Grenada’s capital alone. So you don’t have to travel far just to visit a chocolate-themed destination. The House of Chocolate is a museum, café, and gift shop combined in one cozy space.

Guests can learn more about the history of cocoa in Grenada, as well as its production.

Levera Beach

If you want a beach with fewer crowds and the same picturesque views, then Levera Beach would be for you. You can see Sugar Loaf Island offshore and the Grenadine islands far up north. The beach is very remote, and the roads leading to it are unpaved. However, the journey is worth it if you want to unwind and escape from the busy city. Security is present during the day, but it’s best to avoid visiting the beach at night.

Levera Beach, along with the mangrove swamps and a pond found nearby, are all part of Grenada’s national park system. So environmentalists and nature lovers will surely love this beach.

What makes the place even more remarkable is that it’s the usual nesting site for turtles. You can visit the beach anytime, particularly during the dry season from December to April. If you’ll be visiting from April to August, entry during the evenings may be very limited since it’s nesting season, so it’s generally closed off to foreign visitors. However, guests can stop by only if they’re part of an authorized tour.

Obtaining an IDP from IDA is very easy. In order to get your International Driver’s Permit for Grenada, your application form must be duly filled in, and a copy of your driver’s license and passport-sized photos are to be uploaded. After paying the fees, you can now wait for your IDP, which will be mailed to you right after your application is approved.

Remember that an international driving license in Grenada is different from your native driver’s license. Your IDP is a translation of your license; it would be used overseas when your license will be inspected, especially by rental car companies.

Also, remember that your temporary license in Grenada is different from your international driving license. Your temporary license, also called a visitor driver’s license or visitor’s license, is a license foreign visitors obtain to drive in the country. Remember, your IDP does not allow you to drive; it only translates your license.

Molinere Underwater Sculpture Park

Most people would typically find art in museums, so visit the Molinere Underwater Sculpture Park for a unique underwater experience. All 75 sculptures of the park were created by Jason deCaires and installed in 2006. A unique attraction and a first of its kind, foreign visitors can go snorkeling, scuba diving, or view the exhibit through boating via a glass-bottom boat.

The Sculpture Park played a key role in the government’s decision to make the area a protected site, particularly after Hurricane Ivan caused damage to marine life in 2004. If you want to drop by the park, you can sign up for tours or pay a fee to swim in the area. The best time to visit would be during the dry season from December to April. Because although crowded, you get to avoid the storms that arrive during the wet and rainy season.

Driving Directions (30 mins via Maurice Bishop Memorial Highway):

  • From Maurice Bishop International Airport, head west and turn right onto Maurice Bishop Memorial Highway.

Applying for an international driving license for Grenada is easy; provide your name, e-mail address, number, and other driver’s details on the application form, and submit a copy of your driver’s license and photos of yourself.

Also, remember that you cannot get an International Driver’s Permit from Grenada. Agencies and their branches on the island may issue IDPs, but they’re meant for the locals. If you’ll get your IDP, apply for it in your home country or from IDA. The International Driver’s Association issues IDPs accepted in over 150 countries, and also ships worldwide.

If you lose your IDP, do know that IDA ships replacements. Just provide your name and IDP number to get your new International Driver’s Permit in Grenada. Your address must also be updated, so your copy will be mailed to your current location on the island.

Most Important Road Rules in Grenada

Before driving in Grenada, there are some things you must always be aware of to survive the roads of the island. Foreign visitors who come from countries with strict road rules might be taken aback by Grenada’s driving and road conditions. Make sure to read this guide to fully prepare yourself for what’s to come when you drive in Grenada.

Always Bring Your Driver’s License

Don’t forget to carry your native driver’s license with you at all times, especially if you’re going to drive in the country. You will present your license when you’re about to rent a car and obtain a temporary driver’s license. Do note that your license is different from your international driving license in Grenada. An IDL is not an official document that permits you to drive, but car rental companies mainly need it, so you must always have it as well.

If you don’t have an International Driver’s Permit yet, you can apply for one from IDA. Make sure to fill in the application form and submit the other requirements to finally get your International Driver’s Permit for Grenada. Do note that zip codes aren’t needed when providing your address as zip codes or postal codes aren’t used in the country.

Your Visitor Driver’s License is Your Ticket to Driving on The Island

Your visitor driver’s license or a temporary license is what you’ll need to drive in Grenada. This type of driver’s license is different from your international driving license in Grenada or your native driver’s license, as it is exclusive to foreign visitors. You may get this temporary permit from police stations or even tour operators in the country.

Note that your IDP or international driving license is a translation of your native license and is not an official document for driving. If you don’t have an IDP yet, you can order one from IDA. Before you can get your International Driver’s Permit for Grenada, your contact number, name, and other driver’s details must first be provided on the application form. Lastly, don’t forget to submit a copy of your driver’s license and passport-sized photos of yourself.

Carry Your IDP With You At All Times

An International Driver’s Permit, also informally known as an international driving license, is a booklet that serves as a translation of a driver’s license. If you have plans to drive abroad and your license isn’t issued in English, then you’ll need an IDP. Visit the IDA website to get your International Driver’s Permit for Grenada. Provide your contact number, name, and other driver’s details, and submit a copy of your license and photos to complete your application.

Remember that you can’t apply for an International Driver’s Permit from Grenada. Any agencies and their branches that issue IDPs are meant for locals only. If you wish to get an IDP, then apply for one from your country of origin or IDA. Visit the IDA website at internationaldriversassociation.com to know more about International Driver’s Permits.

Drive Defensively

Although Grenada is one of the Caribbean countries with fairly decent roads and drivers, road collisions are still unavoidable. The country has many narrow and winding streets, potholes, speed bumps, and other road hazards. Some drivers tend to over speed and drive recklessly. Thus, it’s always important to drive defensively.

If you ever get involved in accidents, it’s always good to have your car registration and insurance, as well as other important documents like your passport, native and visitor driver’s license, and IDP. Visit the IDA website to get your International Driver’s Permit for Grenada. Fill in your cell phone (not telephone) number, name, and other driver’s details, and submit the necessary documents to complete your application.

In case you lose your international driving license in Grenada, you can contact customer service as their email address is on the IDA website. Provide your name and IDP number, and don’t forget to give your complete address in the country, so the replacement can be mailed to that location.

Park Your Car in Appropriate Parking Areas

One of the perks of driving in Grenada is getting to experience their lax parking rules. Most of the parking areas are accessible, and many drivers can park their vehicles almost anywhere. However, this doesn’t mean that you’ll break road rules and park in undesignated parking spaces. Breaking these rules might lead to fines, and you don’t want to cash out your money over something that could be avoided.

Besides following road rules, make sure to always bring your important documents with you. These include your temporary and local driver’s license, passport, IDP, car registration and insurance, and other related papers. Your IDP is not an official document, but it greatly helps when your local license isn’t in English.

If you lose your international driving license in Grenada, you can contact IDA customer service, as their telephone number and email address are found on the IDA website. Give your name and IDP number, then update your current address to have your new copy shipped to you right away.
