Grenada and the Grenadines is a small trio of islands in the Caribbean, near the West Indies and quite far south nearer to South America than Florida. It is known as `the Spice Island` for the fragrant nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves, vanilla, and cocoa that flourish in its fertile volcanic soil. Grenada boasts a lush national park and rain forest so you get a great mix of beach and jungle. It is the perfect vacation getaway for travelers with wanderlust who enjoy beautiful views and the island life experience. About seven miles to the north of Grenada, however, is one of the most active volcanoes in the Lesser Antilles. It is a Diamond Island, a submarine volcano, 160 metres below sea level, known locally as `Kich em Jenny`.
