The Spice Isle of the Caribbean adds flavor to your vacation.
The air is different in Grenada. It's not just fresh. It's aromatic. With a definite hint of spices like nutmeg, cinnamon, cocoa, ginger, and cloves. Grenada's forests are a leading source of spices to the world. And help make your visit here something you can really savor.
The picturesque capital, St. George, is filled with buildings and churches hundreds of years old. The city is built on steep terrain, which makes it look as if it's climbing up the side of a mountain. And the market square draws you with its abundance of fruits, arts, and crafts.
Like other Caribbean islands, Grenada has wonderful beaches and terrific resorts. Lots of water sports, too. But in particular, sailing and big-game fishing are a special part of life here. And hiking the countryside will lead you to beautiful waterfalls and fresh water swimming holes most people have yet to explore.
Let the professionals at VIVA Travel make all the arrangements for you. They'll serve up a full-course vacation, with plenty of spice.
