This was a beautiful day out. There are all kinds of exotic plants and flowers. The waterfall is amazing but we were a little bumped that we couldn't go inside of it lol. There are pools that you can go in, but do not waste your time and money..we did and it wasn't all that great. All in all it... More

If you like walking tours and taking your time, finding out about local floral and fauna, then this is worth the trip. Located at the base of the Pitons, we were introduced to a private guide from our driver (hired) and given the walking tour for around $15 ea. There is additional fees if you wanted to take a bath...

The botanical gardens are a wonderful collection of both local and regional plants and flowers. We visited them as part of a tour, and were welcomed by a freelance guide who was very knowledgeable about the gardens.

Nice gardens and the people are great but if you are waiting for actual long walks with several majestic waterfalls and natural hot mineral baths don't hold your breath. Only a medium waterfall and three man made pools (only two work) with a some what warm "mineral" water.

We had a nice walk round it was interesting and somewhere nice to go and find out about the island. The waterfall was a nice conclusion to the walk and there was a small cafe to refuel in a peaceful surrounding. Wouldn't recommend the bath option as they did not look too nice to dip into, but you can pay... More
