This is a beautiful, lush , tropical garden where you can almost interact with the plants, palms, and trees; because all plants are tag or labeled. It enhances your knowledge of tropical plants by taking the inclusive tram tour.

Loved the size of this wonderful garden. Favorite spot was the orchid area. You should take a picnic and spend the day here.

These gardens are worth the trip. Take the tram tour first to get an overview, then you can walk around and enjoy the peaceful setting.
