Our first stop is Concord Waterfall, a 2 km drive up a leafy lane beside a stream, dotted with Grenadian agriculture: nutmeg, bananas, cocoa, and many other plants of interest. At this stop you can use toilets & buy spices as well as jewellery.
Gouyave Nutmeg Processing Station
The nutmeg "pool" in Gouyave is our next stop: you are shown the processing and sorting of nutmegs and mace. Nutmeg products vary from syrup to massage oil, garden mulch to nail varnish; even a pain-relieving spray. The level of activity varies according to time of year and availability of nutmegs. Production is likely to be limited mainly around Christmas, New Year and carnival in August. At this stop you can use toilets & buy spices as well as other nutmeg products.
Belvidere / Rose Mount (refreshment stop)
Time for a little refreshment break at this faded-glory, little plantation house! Enjoy a glass of local fruit juice and have a look at some domestic fruit trees and shrubs. Then we continue through agricultural country with occasional mountain views.
At this stop you can use toilets & purchase some of Jane Duncan's spices.
Driving across the middle of the Island through plantation land rich in spices and fruits. We stop at Grand Etang crater lake, where we cannot promise sightings of Mona monkeys but one or more may come to visit if they think you've got bananas. This is another toiket stop & your last opportunity on the tour to buy local spices. Little tip: Look for strong, vibrant colours when buying spices.
