They say that you can smell nutmeg and vanilla in the air as soon as you hit the tarmac…which makes perfect sense, as Grenada is known as the Spice Island. It’s not visited for a glitz and glamour experience like some Caribbean destinations are. Rather, it attracts the visitor seeking a perfect blend of the old and new. The rich history of the island can be experienced through tours of rum distilleries, spice plantations, or visits to forts along the coastline that once protected the population from the British. Modern-day amenities and opulent accommodations are bookmarks to the variety of adventures throughout the daytime.
Grenada is also home to the world-famous Underwater Sculpture Park, a must-do for divers and snorkelers. Resurface and you’ll be looking at one of the most picturesque harbors in the entire Caribbean. Take a week (or two!) and treat yourself to the spice of life in Grenada.
