- Grenada All inclusive holidays
Take all-inclusive holidays to Grenada and you might not realise the full extent of Europe's influence on the island and its six small siblings. The origins of its name are probably Spanish - named after Granada in Spain - but when it was taken over by the French, they naturalised it as La Grenade. Later, the English took over, and the name changed again to become Grenada. A common thread throughout all of this is the similarity with the various European words for the fruit 'pomegranate', but while Grenadine is both a pomegranate-flavoured liqueur and the name for a person from Grenada, there is no direct connection between the fruit and the island itself.
Flavours of Grenada
In the absence of pomegranates, what can you expect to please your palate during cheap all-inclusive holidays to Grenada? The island's flag offers one hint, as it features a nutmeg as part of its design, and Grenada is the second-largest producer of the spice after Indonesia. You'll find many more spices in the local area, including cinnamon and ginger, as well as citrus peels used to flavour a broad variety of different dishes, and whether you prefer the sweetness of these fruits or the more savoury aspects of the other spices, there are plenty of ingredients to add complexity to the dishes on your hotel's menu.
The warmest welcome
Grenada became a sovereign state in its own right on February 7th 1974, and you can be assured of a warm welcome on cheap all-inclusive holidays in Grenada around this time of year - which offers a great alternative to the peak summer season, too. Don't be surprised if you're handed a plate of 'oil down' to sample, a traditional recipe combining meat, fish or vegetables with coconut milk and callaloo, along with breadfruit to complete this authentic taste sensation.
The benefits of going all-inclusive to Grenada
If the food alone isn't enough to entice you onto all-inclusive holidays in Grenada, then the convenience of having everything already paid for makes a compelling case in its own right. Particularly if travelling with children who are growing in confidence, all-inclusive breaks allow them to ask for snacks or drinks when they want them, without needing to be trusted with spending money of their own - an ideal middle ground as they find their feet in the world.
