Step back in time to a simpler time when you set foot on Grenada's Carriacou Island - one of the most interesting and charming islands in all of the Caribbean. Being only 33 sq km (~ 13 sq miles) in size, this little gem is literally packed full of things to see and do, ranging from traditional boat building workshops that still manufacture locally used vessels, a wide range of beaches and watersports, to a variety of festivals, such as the Carriacou Regatta (an annual event for these locally made boats), a Carnival celebration that would impress even diehard Brazilians, and Parang, held the weekend prior to Christmas. Not to be missed is Maroon Heritage Village, considered the "cradle of culture" and a showcase for the island's unique culture. After you've seen the sites, you will inevitably be drawn back to Carriacou's many glorious beaches. Lay back on the pristine what sands or take a dip into the warm Caribbean waters. Stake your little slice of this tropical paradise and don't let go!
