If you're in Gouyave you can take a short tour of the nutmeg factory, employing 85 persons in an unautomated facility. There is also a shop where you can buy nutmeg related products. Very inexpensive tour.

It doesn't take long but you have to see this nutmeg processing plant. Absolutely fascinating to understand nutmeg production and how important it is to Grenada and its people.
