How to Travel to Grenada Right Now

By: Alexander Britell - February 24, 2021

Spectacular rum, marvelous beaches, world-class chocolate and a potpourri of diverse resorts are just a few of the charms of Grenada.

And now that the island has been open for tourism since the summer, more and more travelers are heading to the destination. 

So how do you do it?

Our latest guide to Caribbean travel protocols explains. 

All travelers to Grenada need to register online here, upload confirmation of an accommodation booking for a minimum of seven nights and receive the island’s “Pure Safe Travel Authorization Certificate.” 

All travelers also need proof of a negative PCR test taken and received within 72 hours of their flight to Grenada. 

When you arrive in Grenada, you’ll submit your entry paperwork, show a printed copy of your Safe Travel Authorization Certificate and proof of your negative test result. 

Then you head to immigration, get your bags, go through customs and head directly to your hotel. 

All travelers need to quarantine at their accommodation until at least the fifth day of their trip, when everyone needs to be tested again. 

If your stay is under five days, you have to stay at your accommodation for the duration of your stay. 

The wellness-focused Laluna boutique resort.

If you test negative on day five, you can enter the community, meaning you’re free to explore Grenada’s attractions and amenities. You can find a full list of approved options here.

So where can you stay? The island’s hotels have broadly reopened, meaning you can stay at every kind of resort, from luxury options like Calabash and Silversands to authentic boutique hotels like True Blue and Laluna. (Here’s a full list of approved accommodations in Grenada
