Grenada's Spice Route

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."

Admire the drive to the beautifully cascading Concord Falls, the unspoiled nature surrounding the waterfall and the clear pool of water below. Take some time to further explore and capture stunning photos! Quality spices can be purchased at the spice shop, before continuing your voyage around this beautiful island.

A 45-minute drive along the west coast takes you to the fishing town of Gouyave, where 50% of the islands fish is caught!

Your first stop on the Spice Tour will be through Dougaldston Estate to the plantations that sustain the environmental wealth of Grenada. Dating back to the 1600's, cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, cocoa and bananas have all been major crops produced on the island. While you walk these grounds, immerse yourself in the culture and history of Grenada, see, smell and touch the spices, discover why the island is often referred to as "the spice of the Caribbean."

Continue your journey with a drive to the lush volcanic mountains of, Grand Etang Rainforest. Where you can take some time to absorb the beauty of natural Grenada. Peeking out of the vegetation, you will spot the Crater Lake glistening among the hills surrounding it. This lake is an extinct volcano that was once responsible for forming the island of Grenada. Time will also be taken to see if we can attract some of the mona monkeys, which are unique to Grenada in the western Hemisphere.

It was great to be in a smaller van than in the large buses for other tours, as we could access narrow mountain roads and see waterfalls. The coffee plantation was interesting.

We thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Our favorite part was learning about the fruit grown on the island - some of it I have never heard of. We tried bananas and they tasted so much better than they do in the states. Loved the scenery, loved smelling fresh spices. Great experience.

Good tour. Covered everything that was on the list from the website. About 20 people in the group and the bus was clean well maintained Very patient and informative driver and guide. Even with a very irritating person on our tour he did a great job of re answering her question over and over. Overall a great tour.
