Grenada, located in the Caribbean, is the largest island in the Grenadines, and is only 12 miles wide and 21 miles long and full of gorgeous beaches, waterfalls, rainforests, and mountains. Grenada is often known as the Spice Island because it is one of the world’s largest exporters of nutmeg and mace, and also grows cinnamon, cocoa, cloves, ginger, turmeric, pimento, and vanilla – all of which you can smell as you drive around the island.

What would a vacation be without a chocolate tour?

While visiting Belmont Estates, a 300 year old plantation, you can also see how some spices are processed and view the gardens and the goat milk farm.
One of the top sights in Grenada can’t be reached by car, bus, or helicopter. Instead, you’ll need to don some flippers and head under water to view the underwater sculptures. The sculptures are at varying depths and are visible by snorkeling, glass-bottom boat, or by scuba diving. The sculpture park is becoming part of the eco-system by encouraging coral reef growth, and is already acting as an artificial reef and is home to many types of aquatic life. If you want to see the sculptures, you can view them by shallow snorkeling or glass bottom boat AND by scuba diving through the more than 30 different dive sites and see different sculptures each time.
