What to do in Granada: The country where you can swim in a lake inside a volcano!

Grenada, a charming island in the Caribbean, has so much to offer that it will be impossible not to fall in love. Its turquoise sea, white sand beaches and rich culture are just the beginning.

Let's start our journey in the capital, St. George, with its colorful houses and vibrant market. Next, we have Grand Etang National Park, where nature is splendid, and Fort Frederick, with breathtaking views. We cannot forget the beautiful Grand Anse Beach and, of course, Lake Antoine, a lake inside a volcano.


Here, the official currency is the East Caribbean dollar, but the US dollar is also widely accepted. The official language is English, and good news for us Brazilians: we don't need a visa to visit Granada for up to 90 days.


Grenada is a constitutional monarchy, with Queen Elizabeth II as head of state. The economy depends heavily on tourism, agriculture and, recently, international education, as the country is home to the world-renowned St. George's University. We were in Grenada or Grenada from Barbados and took the opportunity to get to know this small Caribbean country.

As for costs, Granada is an affordable destination, with options for all budgets. With planning, you can enjoy the wonders of the island without worrying.

And now, the big reveal: Lake Antoine! This fascinating lake is actually the crater of an extinct volcano, and believe me, you can swim in it! Imagine the incredible feeling of floating in a volcano... this is only possible in Granada.
