Tour Details

This half-day tour will give you a great feel of Grenada Island--its landscape, people, and products. And as you'll see, it is, indeed, "The Island of Spice."

A 45-minute drive along the west coast takes you to the fishing town of Gouyave. You will pass by the modern Nutmeg Processing Station, one of the largest nutmeg processing factories on the island and where most of the island's spices are processed for export.

Your first stop on the Spice Tour will be the Dougaldston Estate. Down a bumpy road you step back in time as this spice estate comes into view. Here you will see the real world of spices. You will visit the boucan, a building with huge drying trays on rails that can be rolled under the building if it rains. Depending on the time of year, you may find mace, cocoa, cinnamon, pimento, or cloves out drying. Inside the building, you'll be led to a table where you will be invited to "scratch 'n sniff" the leaves of various spices and guess what they are. Whole spices are available for purchase.

Driving up into the hills, you will visit the Belvedere Plantation, nestled in the cool of the mountains. Here, you can see one of the island's prime exports as the climate is ideal for producing bananas.

Continue driving through the lush volcanic mountains to the Grand Etang Forest Reserve, where a photo stop will be taken at Grand Etang Crater Lake. Time will also be taken to see if we can attract some of the local mona monkeys, which are unique to Grenada in the Western Hemisphere.

You will also make a photo stop at the beautiful cascading Concord Falls.

Reviewer: Deanna Sager
We really enjoyed the Spice route. Our group was divided into vans and we met at the sites. Our driver was very good and very informative. He stoped to make sure we got the pictures we wanted. At the Spice farm the guide was great with lots of info about the spices and the process.

Very informative and an excellent guide that was very easy to understand. We had 12 people on the tour, so the size was perfect. I would recommend this tour in Grenada.
