Grenada – Taxi Tour

Our taxi tour covered nearly the entire island, including shanties, towns and the eastern ”gold coast”.  Wealthy foreigners have purchase land and built reasonably expensive estates which they visit perhaps once a year for a vacation.  Native Grenadians have taken to squatting on the property of the wealthy, building rough shanties made of anything available.  The Grenadian government supports the squatters over the foreign visitors, so the squatters remain camped out on some otherwise beautiful estates.

The beaches and buttes of the island’s eastern shore is popular with visitors and property owners from other countries.

Eager to show off Grenada’s natural wonders, our guide took us to Annandale Falls Park with the largest waterfall on the island.  While very picturesque with tropical plants and flowers, the 45-foot-tall waterfall was less inspiring than advertised.

Tropical flowers and cocoa plants abound on the island.  Here are a few examples among the many, many different varieties.
