A nice place to see and learn about local plants and flowers. The Semi easy trail to the look out is beautiful and I recommend it

Carambola Gardens is the ONLY botanical garden on Roatan. We have now been there 3 times. We always just arrive and pay admission. It is far less expensive than booking a tour through a company. I read a review that said 'skip it'..I would diss-agree...More

This attraction caters to tour groups, and while it appeared that that they are informative to tour groups. I did not have the same experience. For a botanical garden the cost was $15.00 and I got a paper map. In about 10 minutes I had...More

Wonderful taste of local flavor! Go hiking or take a guided tour if you want. Famous mahogany tree, a chocolate tree and lots of interesting plants and trees of other types. At the end of the tour, we had samples of fruit from the garden.

Excellent activity if inclined to explore. The inner pathways are well groomed and lead to a number of exotic collection areas many of which in bloom. The hike to the look out was something else...a real feel of the more wild side of the natural...More

Many short paths with benches and small pavilions scattered about. Plants labeled here and there. Some demonstration areas, but seemed like just for booked groups. Independent exploration was fine and worth some time. I did not go up the mountain path, but with a little...More
