Blue Week and Investment Conference

Radisson Grand Beach Resort St. George’s, Grenada – May 14 to 22, 2016

Getting There

The island can be accessed directly from New York (4.5 hours) on Delta and Jet Blue and directly from Miami (3 hours) on American Airways.  Grenada is also accessible out of New York on Caribbean Airways via Trinidad.   Participants traveling from Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia may also access Grenada through London’s Gatwick Airport (8 hours) on British Airways and Virgin Atlantic.

Things To Note

Credit Cards and Currency

Hotels and car rental companies accept the major credit cards.  Travellers cheques are accepted throughout the island. Our local currency is the Eastern Caribbean dollar (EC) but the US Dollar is accepted.

Banks will exchange EC$2.67 for US$1.00 cash and EC$2.68 for US$1.00 in travellers cheques. 

Dress Code

Due to the warm climate, it is advised that you wear light clothing during the day. The evenings can be much cooler and may sometimes require a light cover-up, depending on the season. If you are planning on visiting the countryside, waterfalls and hiking we recommend that you wear long trousers, long sleeve tops and suitable trekking/hiking shoes.

Swimwear is not permitted on main roads and in bars, restaurants and shops. Also, to differentiate between military personnel and civilians, law in Grenada prohibits civilians from wearing camouflage prints.

Taxing/Tipping

There is an 8% Government tax applied at hotels and restaurants and most also add a 10% service charge. Additional gratuities are at your discretion.

Telecommunications

Grenada's area code is 473.  International calls can be made from most hotel rooms, but it is advised that you check with front desk first.  Mobile services are available from the current local network providers; LIME and Digicel.  There are also coin phones for local calls and card phones for both local and overseas calling.
