The Price of Ice

I've allowed ice to become a luxury I simply can't live without. But it comes at a price ... and boy has it varied across locales. Here's a table of ice prices in the places we've visited so far, from most to least expensive.

Conversion: $2.50 EC = $1 CAD or $2.67 EC = $1 USD

$EC Location
$35 Saltwhistle Bay, Mayreau, SVG ("Fake Friends" was the name of his boat)
$30 Tobago Cays, SVG (Well, there must be a delivery price built in)
$25 Admiralty Bay, Bequia, SVG (Daffodil)
$15 Basil's Bar, Mustique, SVG
$15 Clifton, Union Island, SVG
$7 Mini Market, Prickly Bay, Grenada
$5 Directly from the Ice Truck as they delivered to De Big Fish in Prickly Bay, Grenada and only because he didn't have change for a $10 EC
$3.75 Mini Mart, Rodney Bay, St. Lucia

So, as you can imagine, I'm keeping myself in ice while we're here in St. Lucia! All beverages taste better, chilled :)

  1. And to think, here in Moncton we have ice 'growing' on our roofs, decks, and fenceposts -- all for free!

    You're absolutely right --- rum punch is nearly 'punchless' w/o ICE!
