Day 1 St. George’s Grenada
Arrive in Grenada and transfer to your hotel. Remainder of the day at leisure. Overnight at Hotel Coyaba.
Welcome to Grenada. The scent of nutmeg, vanilla and cinnamon lingers in the air in Grenada, nicknamed the “Spice Island” for its spice plantations. The largest of the three-island independent nation of Grenada (including Carriacou and Petit Martinique) tempts visitors with waterfalls, rainforests, and white-sand beaches. The 18th-century harbor capital, St. George’s, is one of the prettiest in the West Indies. When it comes to food, Grenadian’s like it particularly hot and spicy. Pepper pot is a favourite – meat cooked with lots of pepper, garlic and onions. As well as fragrant spices, music is also an important part of life on Grenada, and the calypso tunes dancing over the island serve to evoke Grenada’s African origins.
Day 2 Day tour / hike to Etang Rainforest
Today enjoy a hike to the ‘Seven Sisters Falls’ set high in Grenada’s Central Mountain Range. While going through the sometimes muddy trails, take in the agricultural and lush rain forest scenery. You will see lots of bird life and occasionally monkeys. Swim in perfect nature-made swimming pools at the base of the waterfalls and enjoy watching the fish and crayfish dart around in the river. You will visit the first two waterfalls. The hike is usually around 45 minutes each way. Note that the path from the entrance to the falls is downhill and will require proper walking shoes (therefore uphill on the way back). A walking stick will be provided to help manoeuvre and for support. It is not for the faint of heart and can be mildly strenuous. Overnight at Hotel Coyaba. (B)
