About Grenada

Known as "The Spice of the Caribbean," visitors will be enticed by the sweet scents of nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger and vanilla wafting on the balmy breeze.
In fact, there are more spices in Grenada per square mile than anywhere else on the planet! Nutmeg is the most abundant spice, and Grenada produces about a third of the world's supply.


Grenada's capital, St. George's, is known as the most picturesque city in the Caribbean. Its horseshoe-shaped harbor is surrounded by a pastel rainbow of dockside warehouses and the red-tiled roofs of traditional shops and homes. Rich in English, French and West Indian history, St. George's is filled with beautiful well-preserved examples of French and British Colonial architecture.

Average temperatures range from 75'F to 85'F (24'C to 30'C), tempered by the steady and cooling trade winds. The lowest temperatures occur between November and February. Due to Grenada's remarkable topography, the island also experiences climate changes according to altitude. The driest season is between January and May. Even during the rainy season, from June to December, it rarely rains for more than an hour at a time and generally not every day.

As for cuisine, you can indulge in some of the most exciting in the region, from native Grenadian fare, made from the fresh bountiful produce that is found in the bustling markets, to some of the finest creations in international cuisine. West Indian cuisine is of course popular, with restaurants featuring creative local cuisine such as callaloo soup, a variety of fresh local seafood, and meats prepared with a true West Indian flare.
