Although probably not top of the list of places the visit, the nutmeg pool is actually an interesting place to go. The whole process from growing nutmeg, to processing and distribution is explained in detail, and then you can look at and buy products derived from nutmeg. Make sure you visit on the day that the staff are working to... More

Although my parents are from Grenada you can't but help understand how the country makes its money apart from tourism as some countries are struggling. Our tour guide was very informative and left nothing unturned to ensure all of us understood how locals make their money and where the nutmeg goes. Price to go in is $2.70 EC or $1.00... More

The factory is very important for the island, considering the cultural and economical significance of nutmeg production. It is a rather simple place where things are done in a traditional way. It's still very interesting to see and to enjoy the scent of nutmeg. Usually it is just a quick stop in Gouyave during the island tours and can be... More

The building is very warm, but smells beautiful. The process is rather simple and I'm not sure it really needs explaining. It was hard to hear the guide anyway! You will visit a central room where the bags are painted with locations. This makes for some excellent tourist photos, as you can pose with "London" etc.

We had a bus tour of Grenada which included a stop here. It was difficult to hear what the guide was saying but you could figure out what was going on. On display was the everyday working of nutmeg processing. You can see how hard they work to get the nutmeg ready to sell.

It was interesting seeing the nutmeg factory but our tour was very short (only 5 minutes) and there really was not a lot to see.

We spent our time in Gouyave with of our guide, Allan Meddy, who arranged for a private tour of the facility. For the price of a minimal entrance fee, we spent 20-30 minutes at the facility, and it was fascinating to follow the process, which is extremely labor intensive. In fact, the entire process seemed to rely entirely on manual... More

Visited as part of a tour group, taken through the process of growth, harvest and shipping of the nutmeg. Interesting, as you buy it in your supermarket, not really thinking about how the jar got there!! Nice little shop good for pressie buying.
