Info on Grenada wanted

Jump to last reply

We are going on a cruise and will be spending a day in Grenada, would like information on things to do there. We are a group on 10 and were wondering about hiring a taxi driver (do they have the big taxi vans there?) Any info would be appreciated

    10 in a van can be crowded but doable - you might want to split up into two groups. Henry's Tours and Spiceland Tours are two reputable operators - there are others which you can check out at the Tourist Board office on The Carenage, near the Cruise Ship Terminal. To get a feel for the island in one day, you'll want to explore St. George's, the capital (you can do that on foot or as part of a tour), then head north along the west coast to Goyuave (the Dougaldston Spice Plantation and the Nutmeg Cooperative) and Concord Falls. The scenery is spectacular. Grand Etang National Forest Preserve - the rain forest and Crater Lake - is in the center of the island. Tours usually arrive in Sauteurs, at the north end of the island, around lunch time - at either Morne Fendue or Mount Rodney Estate, two plantation great houses. Return to St. George's via the east coast, passing through small villages and Grenville, Grenada's "second city." Be sure to save some time for Grand Anse Beach - at least dip your toes in the water and admire the view.
