We visited with a group of 12 people and were given a nice tour by the founder of the garden. A lot of hard work and care was put into the gardens, and we got a lesson on the different fruits that come from the local plants.

We walked here from Mayoka Boutique Hotel and ended up spending a couple hours. Do wear good bug repellent! (They sell it if you forget.) The map was helpful, staff friendly. Amazing hummingbirds, sometimes a dozen at once. Spots to stop and rest if you need it. The trip up to the viewpoint was a humid warm haul, but the... More

My son and I wanted a little diversion from our scuba diving routine, so we decided to take a hike into this place. This garden displays numerous botanicals such as the cocao and coffee plants, hyacinths and various other botanicals. I am not big into botanicals, so I can't compare it to other gardens. At times, you feel like you... More

We were on a scuba trip to Roatan and took this as a side attraction. We didn't really expect much because this is not really our kind of thing, but we couldn't have enjoyed more. Bill gave the tour and he's an incredible wealth of knowledge. Coffee, vanilla, cinnamon, chocolate, it's all growing here. And you get the background on... More

We so enjoyed this natural habitat of plants, flowers, hummingbirds, butterflies and paths thru nature. A spectacular Cannonball tree was in full bloom! Enjoy a presentation about native fruits and nuts. A $20 taxi trip from the cruise dock and $10 admission. Worth every penny. The terrain can be a little uneven but navigable. Don't miss this!

If you like flora, don't miss this garden. Not only can you do it by yourself but you can do a guided tour also. It's like being in the rain forest with plant signs. So dense that it actually rained during our visit and we only had a few drops hit us. Great place to spend a few hours with... More

For ten dollars per person to get in you can't go wrong visiting. The gardens are well kept and you can see you very neat things. My favourite part was the view from the observation point which requires a twenty minute hike through the jungle to the top of a hill/mountain.

Seriously, this is one of the most beautiful hikes I’ve ever gone on in my life. I highly recommend making this a stop on your trip – if only for 2 hours. They have every jungle tree imaginable, all labeled for your scientific enjoyment. And the 20 minute hike to the top of Carambola Mountain was so beautiful I didn’t... More
