March Madness in Grenada

Posted on March 31, 2022

Cricket at the Grenada stadium

Cricket (not the insect)

Last weekend, Grenada was treated by hosting the third and final part of the Cricket Test match between England vs West Indies. Gearing up for March Madness in Grenada. Although there are no Grenadians part of the cricket team that represent the West Indies, did not deter the local population for supporting their representative team against the English. What a fine day it was on Sunday 27th, when West Indies won, and took the Richards-Botham trophy, with an emphatic 10-wicket victory over England in the deciding third and final Apex Test match at the Grenada National Stadium on Sunday.

During lunch break and yes, tea time, spectators were given a glimpse of the upcoming Spice Mas, with the parading of the pretty mas, with colourful feathered and sequined costumes, to the traditional  Grenada Short Knee, and oil smeared Jab jab, that make their appearance on J’ouvert (which is the opening celebration for the carnival revelries)

Spice Mas is the local carnival celebration that is held on the second week of August. More of that to come.

Team Laluna

Laluna cricket team gave an admirable effort in the Grenada GCIC inter sector cricket series. After a series of wins, lost today in the quarter finals. We are proud of our guys and lady, who gave it their best, bringing together the Laluna family, through good sportsmanship.

March Weather

March was a windy one, adding to the March Madness in Grenada. The trade winds made their presence with powerful gusts for up to 30knots. These cooling breezes, add to the comfort in the shade, as temperatures average 80 degrees this time of year.

It is also a drier time of month, as rain will sprinkle from time to time, to the grateful gardens that surround the cottages at Laluna. But it also means that is also the season when the bougainvillea boast their blooms of vibrant colours adding  to the March Madness in Grenada.

Less rain means that hiking paths are drier and firm footing, making the exploration of the island on foot, a pleasurable one. Make sure to book your guided tour with our personal guide.
