The local tour guide,s other job was to rake the nutmegs back & forth to dry them in dozens of drying racks. Everything is pretty well done by hand here. The ladies working in the plant seemed very happy doing the boring job of sorting,drying & bagging the nutmegs.The staff were all pleasant. It was a very informative tour. If... More

In this age of automation , it is amazing to see how nutmegs are processed and sorted in this fragrant warehouse in Gouyave . My only complaint is that the tour seemed rushed. I'm not sure about parking its kind of a busy street. Beware the lance bridge it is narrow and crossed by many trucks.

The folks at the Co-op were amazing. The equipment has been in use for hundreds of years and it was an informative tour. We loved the staff who were incredibly accommodating and patient

Regarding Grenada, I have been fortunate to of been to many different islands in the Caribbean, Barbados and Antigua still being my two of my favourites,... More

There’s nothing like the real thing! The nutmeg you buy in shops has invariably lost its strong, fresh aroma. Grenada is famous for its spices, in particular nutmeg, which is exported around the world. The biggest nutmeg receiving and processing station in Grenada is in Gouyave, a bustling fishing village on the west coast; a great day out. The station... More

We went to the Nutmeg Association whilst doing a tour of Grenada. What a totally fantastic experience it was. We would never have believed how the nutmeg was processed if we hadn't have seen it. The tour guide who took us round gave us a in depth knowledge of the full process. If you get the chance to go and... More

We visited the nutmeg proceeding plant in Gouyav, and it turned out to be one of the most interesting, informative and direct tours we participated in in Grenada. The tour is very cheap, and not very long (but you have plenty of time to ask as many questions as you like and take as many photos). The tour lets you... More
