Locals call Grenada the “spice of the Caribbean”, probably because the island is known for the wide variety of spices grown there. As soon as you set foot on the island you can smell the sweet scent of nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger and vanilla. In fact this island is very popular with shoppers who come specifically to buy them. The island is also very popular for its famous Caribbean rum punch and most tourists purchase a few bottles to take back home.
St. George’s is the island’s capital and is one of the most picturesque cities in all of the Caribbean. Many of the buildings are adorned with red-tiled roofs and the streets are lined with traditional shops and homes. It is also filled with French and British Colonial architecture and Georgian colonial buildings, with pastel coloured facades, all of which make it a great place to take a leisurely stroll.
