Grenada is the Spice of the Caribbean.

Ancient rum traditions live on in the 18th century River Antoine Rum Distillery, one of the oldest distilleries in the Caribbean. A tour of the estate gives you a chance to learn about the rum production process and taste some of the delectably potent brew.

Follow the tantalising aromatics of cocoa to Belmont Estate for a fascinating tour of an authentic cocoa plantation and the Grenada Chocolate Factory. The Gouyave Nutmeg Processing Station in St. George’s is a must-visit for anyone interested in the rich spice history of the island.

And then there are the beaches. Black Bay is famous for its volcanic sand, La Sagesse is one of the most romantic locations in the Caribbean, Morne Rouge is perfect for families and Grand Anse is famous for its beauty.

Follow hiking trails through the steaming rainforests of Grand Etang National Park to find gushing waterfalls and mischievous Mona monkeys, or head to Levera National Park to gaze into the shimmering depths of a water-filled volcanic crater.

Although Grenada is considered a relatively safe destination, you should still take the usual precautions and use common sense as you would anywhere else in the world. Travel insurance to cover theft and medical expenses is recommended.

Petty crime does happen; leave valuables, important documents and large wads of cash in the hotel safe. Remain vigilant of your surroundings and avoid isolated areas such as beaches and narrow streets (especially at night). Make use of licensed taxis at night and agree on a fare beforehand. Keep hotel and car doors locked. You should familiarise yourself with the local laws and customs.

Proof of yellow fever vaccination is required if you are travelling from an infected country. Mosquito-borne diseases such as Zika virus, dengue fever and chikungunya are present, so precautions should be taken to avoid bites. Vaccinations for hepatitis A & B, typhoid and rabies are recommended. Routine vaccinations include MMR, diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis, meningitis, varicella, polio and influenza.
