Meals not included
A scenic island drive by coach heads through the quaint capital of St George's, past Government House, through St Paul's and to the parish of St David's, where plantations of cocoa and spices abound.
Visit the Laura Herb & Spice Garden -- 6.5 acres of trees, plants, and green grassy fields. Treat your taste buds to a range of herbs and spices -- cocoa, cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon, turmeric and tonka beans in their natural state. The gift shop sells small packets to take home.
Continuing up the island's eastern side, you'll pass through the seaside villages of Marquis and Soubise. Watch for the brightly-painted fishing boats that dot the beaches of Grenada.
Turn inland to ascend the central peaks up to the National Park Nature Center at Grand Etang. Here, a gorgeous crater lake nestles within an extinct volcano 1,900 feet above sea level. The breezes up here are heavenly.
On the descent, you'll pass through magnificent hanging carpets of green mountain ferns and the quaint villages of Vendome, Snug Corner and Beaulieu en route back to the pier at St George's.
