Visited as part of an excursion package. Lots of greenery, beautiful foliage. Diamond waterfalls were very pretty. Tour guide was knowledgeable as well. Tips are welcomed and accepted.

Our tour guide engaged Alex, on staff at the Botanical Garden, to guide us through the garden's plants from various area around the tropics..Alex was knowledgeable and fun as an interpreter. Owing to the high mineral content of the water there are no mosquitoes in the Garden. The waterfall called Diamond Falls changes the color of the rock, depending on... More

While not the vast acres of gardens that you might find in other countries' botanical gardens I thought that they had done a lovely job. My Mother and I who are both avid gardeners were impressed with how well maintained the gardens were, no small feat in a tropical climate. There was sufficient signage and information to give you something... More

Not much to see here. Sort of out the way, bland, and not many signs or facilities for use at the gardens.

It is ok. Same plants you see all over the island. Waterfall is kind of small. Kind of underwhelming.

It is not some place you have to visit in case you're not into mineral baths. The botanical garden is a little bit more than a garden and Diamond Waterfall doesn't have anything special. You can try the mineral baths on the internal pools - warm mineral water from local springs - that are relaxing and healthy. But in case... More

Flowers and waterfall are beautiful. We are glad we walked through the gardens with a guide; she provided much information that we would not have known
