Saint George's is the capital and largest city of Grenada with a total population of around 9000 in the city itself and over 35,000 thousand inhabitans in the total agglomeration. Apart from its administrative role, the capital and surroundings are the economical hart of the island, partly because it functions as a major port as well. The city is not without its cultural and historical significance though and forts, churches, markets as well as the national museum and the parliament and other governmental buildings are within walking distance. And let's not forget nearby beaches, like the famous Grand Anse beach, which are just a short ride from town. All this can be done in a comfortable way with good hotels catering to package tourists mainly.

Weather

Saint George's has a hot and humid tropical climate with average daytime temperatures between 28º C and 30º C and average nights around 23º C. Most rain falls between June and October with a chance of hurricanes from August onwards. Therefore, the drier (and slightly cooler) December to April period is the best time to visit weather-wise. Unfortunately prices rise sharply during this period and the months of November and May still have good weather. So budget-wise these later months may be a good option as well.
