One of the most common questions we hear is, "How does cost of living compare to America?" I have composed this list of items in Grenada that I have converted to U.S. dollars to give an idea!
Apartments in a decent area:
Land: $2-$5/sq. ft ($80,000 to $200,000/acre), although much higher in upscale/popular areas
Vehicle: 2001 Toyota van with 140,000 miles: $6500
2004 Honda CRV with 125,000 miles: $7500
Oil change: $80
Electric: $.45 per kWh (yes, one of the highest in the world!)
Gallon of gas: $6.50/imperial gallon (approximately 1.2 U.S. gallons)
Internet access: $45/month (20 mbps download, 1 mbps upload)
Cable television: $20 (basic) to $120
Case of water: $22
Gallon of milk: $8
Ground beef: $12/lb.
Honey Bunches Of Oats cereal, 12 oz.: $17
Diapers: $.75 each
8 piece bucket of chicken at KFC (our only fast food place): $20
Chocolate candy bar: $2
Most groceries cost 2-3 times what they would in America. Let me know what item(s) you would be interested in!
