Fodor's Review

Touring the nutmeg-processing co-op, right in the center of the west-coast fishing village of Gouyave (pronounced gwahv), is a fragrant, fascinating way to spend a half hour. You can learn all about nutmeg and its uses, see the nutmegs laid out in bins, and watch the workers sort them by hand and pack them into burlap bags for shipping worldwide. The three-story plant turned out 3 million pounds of Grenada's most famous export each year before Hurricane Ivan's devastating effect on the crop in 2004, when most of the nutmeg trees were destroyed. Production has finally returned to pre-Hurricane Ivan levels.
