Penny's Take on Grenada

Grenada, The Spice of the Caribbean, certainly lives up to its name, but the wonderful assortment of spices that are readily available is not all it haves to offers. Grenada is rich in culture, history and traditions and stands apart from any place I've been too. With it's blue waters and whites beaches you would think it would be just another resort area, but it's not. Grenada has everything your looking for... you just have to ask. 

If you want to go for a dive, many resorts have dive shops on there property. Looking to explore the rainforest, take a tour or drive yourself. If you drive your self and get honked at, don't worry-- it's just the Grenadians' way of saying "hi" or my favorite, "You can't see me because I'm around a bend and I don't want to bump you."

Spend your Saturday at the local farmers market and check out local fruits, vegetables and spices. If you are not looking for an adventure, choose a place with a beach-view yoga center and spa. How about a private room with your own pool and a view of the ocean? Sound like paradise? Believe me when I tell you that it is. If you are traveling with children and need a sitter, simply choose a resort that offers on-site babysitting. If you are getting married, you can stay at one resort and have your wedding at another. There are places that can hold up to 100 guests or, for more intimate weddings, you can  choose a small and secluded place.

If you are really looking for something different, you can get married on a sail boat. Are you all about the food, Grenada has some amazing restaurants and while you are there, you have to try callaloo (local vegetable) and lambie (local shell fish). Grenada really has everything you are looking for.

I was very fortunately to be able to experience the beauty and hospitality of Grenada. It was thanks to the Association For Wedding Professionals International that I was able to take this trip and represent Candy Cain Travel. I look forward to my next one!
