We booked this excursion through Royal Cruise line and their description made it sound quite interesting, which in reality it was not. The description stated the was little walking involved and in reality there was quite a bit of walking and that is just half...More
This was truly a surprise. We pulled up not knowing what to expect. After a brief introduction to the Gardens and a small fee per person, we entered the Gardens. We had the most amazing hike to the top of the mountain that provided a...More

The garden had plenty species. Some of them weren't in bloom, some where. We got to see cocoa pods right from the tree as well as coffee beans. The hike to the top was awesome and the view from up there was breathtaking. You get...More
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.
We had come full circle, standing on the top of the hill looking out at a large bay surrounded by turquoise waters and doted with a handful of houses. Back in 2011, my husband and I visited this garden while on a cruise. So enchanted...More

You probably have the answer you need - however, your aunt COULD visit the gardens if she was content to stay in the lower part near the entrance building. There are places to sit and the trails are pretty easy to navigate. If it is rainy or wet, she shouldn't go, but if the conditions are dry I think she could manage parts of the park. If your aunt is content to sit by herself, or if someone can stay with her, then the others in your party will likely see what the park has to offer in about an hour to an hour and a half. I hope this is of some use to you.
