Get back to the roots, Grenada
Impromptu parties are a regular occurrence in the Caribbean: often kicking off in the middle of the street, with heavy bass beats booming out of huge speakers, accompanied by dancing and liberal doses of local rum. Trouble is, you never know when and where they’re happening – unless you’re staying with a local. Homestays Grenada organizes stays with families all across Grenada – from the picturesque harbour of St George and the long Grande Anse beach to the remote northern village of Sauteurs. Closely involved in the daily life of the home and the community, guests will be treated like a member of the family. Homestays Grenada also runs a variety of “Roots Tours”, which range from a traditional Rastafarian picnic and a visit to local artists to demonstrations of herbal medicine. You could even learn how to play the steel drums – your own noisy contribution to those spontaneous shindigs.
Most of the homes are on the main island of Grenada although there’s also one on Petite Martinique. For details see www.homestaysgrenada.com.
For an insight into local culture, book lodgings with a family through a company such as Homestays Grenada (07429 540 849; homestaysgrenada.com), and join in activities including Caribbean cookery and steel-pan lessons.

The best place to soak up the real Caribbean is Grenada. The organisation ‘Homestays Grenada’ offers around 20 friendly homes on the lush main island of Grenada, plus the neighbouring islands of Carriacou and Petite Martinique. Expect to be thoroughly immersed in the local lifestyle.
And here’s what some of our guests had to say about Homestays.
