The gardens are amazing and had a large diversity of flora. You can easily spend hours here or make it a fast 45 minute walk through. The waterfall is not that spectacular, but still worth the walk. We opted out of the mineral baths since we have done a few others on our trip. This is a definite see for... More

We stopped here and to be honest I didn't really want to go as the multi-stop tour was tiring but I am so glad I did. The gardens are beautiful and very well maintained. Our guide was excellent and gave just the right amount of information. It was genuinely really interesting. I enjoyed the walk and the flora and fauna... More

My group was guided by a local gentleman who went by the moniker Alexander the Great. It wasn't long before I had to agree that the name was apropos. This man was a walking hard-drive of information about all things St. Lucia and the botanical minutiae in particular. The garden itself is very well groomed and hosts a multitude of... More

Some friends and I went visit the Gardens at the end of July. We had a great time and a great tour guide (Alexander the Great). Alexander was extremely knowledgeable and could answer any question that you might have.

The garden tours are provided by volunteers, who work for gratuities, so they are grateful for tips. The garden themselves are magical. There are plants, trees and flowers heralding from all parts of the world. The tour guide for my excursion was "Alexander The Great." He was a lovely man, who was knowledgable about the origins of the plants, was... More

Interesting to see, visit was part of a trip where you take a catamaran down to Soufriere, you see the Pitons, Waterfall, Botanical Gardens and the Drive In Volcano or visit the mud baths

Quick walk up/down a hill with many varieties of tropical plants and trees to see. Waterfall at the top, it is tall, but low flow when we were there. Everyone stops for pics anyway. Small gift shop with some tshirts and trinkets. Right outside the gardens, some locals sell necklaces. Take variety of US $ denominations if you plan to... More

The walk through the gardens was well worth it. Bounty of exotic and colorful plants and flowers. The back drop made for great picture taking of the members that you are traveling with. Very relaxing and easy walk for any age. St.Lucia has been in a drought so the water fall may disappoint some, more of a small water fall.... More

It's worth a visit if you're in the area. Or worth a special trip - we drove from Castries - if you combine it with other tours. We managed to fit in the volcano tour and the Morne Coubaril Estate tour on the same day.
