Postal services within Grenada are efficient and fast, but sending parcels and packages outside the country can take longer than you may be used to. When sending mail to addresses other than those on the island, expect shipping to take at least one week. You may arrive home before your package does.
The Grenada Postal Corporation's main office is located on Port Highway, St. George's, but you may ship mail and packages from smaller post office branches found in most villages and towns. Many branches are open from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday to Thursday and 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Fridays. Post office workers are usually on a lunch break between noon and 1:00 p.m. and offices are closed on Saturdays and Sundays, so remember to take care of your postal needs during the week.
Postage rates on most mail and packages are usually very reasonable. Regular mail service on the island requires a Grenadian postage stamp, which costs about $1(EC) for a postcard and $1(EC) per ½ ounce for a standard airmail letter to the United States, Canada, or England. Mail sent to these countries usually arrives within five to 14 days. Contact the main post office branch for postage details to other countries. When sending mail outside Grenada, make sure to include the name of the country as a part of the address on the outside of the package, and be sure to label the package "Air Mail."
International courier services are also available at the post office, including Federal Express, DHL, UPS. The Grenada Postal Corporation also offers its own express mail services. Most courier services can not deliver packages in one day, yet these services remain expensive. Vacationers may also want to consider airline's shipping services.
Sending postcards and other mail from Grenada is reliable, even if they do take long time to arrive.
