ST. GEORGE’S, GRENADA, January 15, 2014 – GIS: An island tour in the rain would be unheard of for most persons, but on Tuesday, January 13, the Minister for Tourism, other Ministry officials and Heads of Department of the Grenada Tourism Authority (GTA) braved the inclement weather to conduct site visits to four of Grenada’s tourist attractions;the Annandale Waterfalls, the Grand Etang National Park, the Sulphur Springs and Bathway Beach. 

The purpose of the trip was twofold: to orient the new Tourism Minister with Grenada’s tourism product and to conduct onsite evaluations of the attraction sites.

Minister Bain-Horsford said although the rainy weather was not anticipated when the tour was planned; it provided the team with an excellent chance to observe how the sites operate during heavy fall.

“It’s a great experience because you get an opportunity to see how well the weather fits in with the whole ambiance as we look at the product here in Grenada,” the new Tourism Minister said.  “We are looking at different projects we have developed over the years... their status and how we can enhance them.”

The tourism delegation was not the only group undaunted by the weather, large numbers of tourists also visited the sites and actually seemed to enjoy the Grenadian rain.

GTA’s Manager for Product Development, Kirl Grant  Hoschtialek, said the trip gives the tourism officials the product thrust needed to continue enhancing different products and sites to reflect the Pure Grenada brand.

“We want to ensure that as we continue to expand on our products as a tourism body, we  have products and services that reflect the Pure brand. We hope that with this collaborative effort we will continue to build on the strong products,” Mrs. Hoschtialek said.

According to the GTA’s Chief Executive Officer, Rudy Grant, there was great collaboration between the Ministry and the Authority last year and more partnership is anticipated as Minister Bain-Horsford has already begun putting structures in place to ensure that the two institutions continue to work together in 2015.

Sites visits are currently being planned for the Sister Isle of Carriacou.
