If you like their rum, be sure to come. It is cheaper here than elsewhere. Show up to take the tour to get the samples to find out if you like their rum compared to others. The tour is adequate - not much to see compared to a standard Napa winery tour or any beer distillery tour in the States.

We were on an island tour, and stipped here. Although as soon as we started our tour, it started raining buckets I would say it was worth the trip there. We just waited out the rainstorm in the gift shop, and went on our way. It was fascinating to see the native plants, and to hear of their various uses... More

Very interesting!!! So much to appreciate. The smell of the alcohol will keep me warm in cold Britain. I loved it.

We enjoyed this garden, The fact that it is built over and around the old ruins of a plantation makes it more interesting. We finally found out what a lot of the plantlife we kept seeing was called.

This is a private nursery on 14 acres, that I'm sure is beautiful, but the description is wrong, they do not do tours ever (the guy at the gardens specifically said "yeah, there's something wrong on TripAdvisor or something." Please fix this, TA!

Cruzan Gardens is beautiful just to visit and walk around - buying local plants and gardening supplies is a bonus! We buy all our fruit trees and shrubs and palms here, and are about to invest in some large mahoganies for our property. As a tourist location it is primarily a beautiful garden to visit and enjoy - but the... More

I love gardens so I'm a bit biased, but this place is wonderful! There's so much to see and learn and it's so tranquil. I love it here. The fruit tree and cactus areas are particularly attractive. Cost permitting, it would be an even better place if they gave guided tours since the area prompts visitors to ask so many... More

I would not really classify this as a tourist location, but if you want local knowledge of the plant life, this guy is friendly and helpful.
