My wife had herself set on visiting this popular herb & botanical garden... and I was a bit hesitant, yet was very satisfied with all the things I learned over the hour tour. And after spending a week travelling around Curacao, I now have a greater appreciation for all the island's plant life & the history behind it.

We got here kind of late so we didn't have as much time as we would have liked. The store was closed when we were done with our self guided tour. We were sad about this as we would have liked to look around and pick up some herbs/plants. The gardens are well loved and looked over. Try to get... More

Although there were some interesting aspects, I was overall disappointed with the garden. Many of the signs did not match with the information on the pamphlet we were given. Many plants were dry and scraggly looking. The shop was not stocked as well as I had expected.

However, when we got there the garden was in a very poor state with many plants and trees well passed their sell by date. We felt it was one of those places that used to be nice once some years ago. Dinah sounds... More

This is a must visit if you use herbs and and are an active homeopath. The owner is extremely knowledgable. Very nice and complete garden.

If you love medicinal herbs and you are in curacao, this is a must. Dinah is 'the' herbalist on the island and her efforts have 'saved' the local herb history and knowledge. The garden is small but well marked and has many artistic touches scattered throughout. Dinah is a gem and hopefully you will get to spend a little time... More
