Grenada is an island in the Lesser Antilles chain ninety miles north of Venezuela. Grenada measures fourteen miles across and twenty-six miles top to bottom for a total land area of 121 square miles. Dense rain forest, a jagged coastline, picturesque beaches, and brilliant foliage are enhanced by a mild climate. Grenada’s southern position protects it from hurricanes.
The current population of Grenada is 107,846 as of Thursday, June 29, 2017, based on the latest United Nations estimates.
LANGUAGE & CLIMATE
English is the country’s official language, but the main spoken language is either of two creole languages (Grenadian Creole English and Grenadian Creole French). The climate is tropical: hot and humid in the rainy season and cooled by the trade winds in the dry season.
ECONOMIC CITIZENSHIP BY INVESTMENT
Grenada relies on tourism as its main source of foreign exchange, especially since the construction of an international airport in 1985. Agriculture is the nation’s next most important industry. Some of its exports include cinnamon, cloves, ginger, mace, and cocoa.
