We came here as a class for an afternoon, and we saw lots of native Honduran plants. There was signs below each type of tree/plant and had clearly marked trails and paths throughout the area. At the back of the garden there is a trail that leads up to the top of the hill to a viewing area of Anthony’s Key Resort and the ocean.

This is such a cool place. We live in NYC and often escape the city to go upstate to hike. We went to the gardens for their hiking trail. It was awesome. A little steep and not perfectly maintained but we loved it. Total jungle hike experience, but safe and secure and the view at the top is beautiful. This is also great if you dont do the hike, the gardens and paths are beautiful and all the tress are labeled so you can learn aboutt the plant life of Roatan which is very cool.

Beautiful examples of food plants such as cacao, coffee, papaya, banana, cinnamon and oil palm, in a natural shady setting of native jungle. There is a great walk to the top of a hill via multiple good (tho sometimes poorly marked) trails with views of the north coast and reef. A cool shady place on a hot day.

We decided to go to this wonderful little hideaway on a rainy day. Carambola had larger umbrellas for us and we walked along numerous trails which had nice covered areas to hang out as well. The flora was wonderful. It also had elevated trails that took you to the top of the mountain (not that high) and allowed views of the north shore of Roatan and the sea. Nicely marked trees and shrubs and an abundance of nice things to see

We were off a cruise ship and had booked the custom trip around the island that can be booked via TA. We chose this place as one of our stops and were really glad we did. It was raining hard when we visited and so there was hardly anyone there, but the rain in the canopy of all the trees added to the experience. It is cheap to enter, a member of staff have us a briefing on what we would find in the garden. Well we saw numerous plants and trees that we had never seen growing wild before and yet take for granted in our daily lives. You are given a map of the lay out and you have the opportunity to take a path to the top of the garden which affords a view out over the coast. It is worth the effort, but the path is very rough and ready and anyone a bit dodgy on their feet probably should give this a miss. We really enjoyed our visit here and would thoroughly recommend visiting the garden. They do have a small shop, restrooms and someone appeared to be preparing some good whilst we were there.
