Grenada

If variety is the spice of life, then Grenada epitomizes the taste of the tropics. Throughout the island, the intoxicating aroma of spices such as nutmeg, cinnamon, and cloves is carried on the winds of centuries-old tradition. The island offers an untold variety of attractions, from the 45 sun-kissed beaches to the jungle-covered central mountain range. From the cruise terminal, hop on a water taxi or stroll through the 125-year-old Sendall Tunnel to reach the Carenage, the promenade that runs along the waterfront. Grab a seat at one of the many open-air cafés and absorb the visual splendor of what is widely considered one of the most picturesque ports in the Caribbean.
