Best to do this in the morning, before it gets too hot. There are two walking tours, but you can sort of blend them together. This would probably be prettier when the islands aren't suffering from too little rain, but hubby was good-natured about being dragged through. There are ruins and a museum about the island's past in addition to... More

The island has been in drought for 2 years so not a lot of things were in bloom other then cactus. Actually the whole island is pretty much brown. Costs $8 per person and was worth it but would be a so much better if everything was in bloom.

This garden appears to be very beautiful if seen during a normal weather pattern. When we went the island was into it's ninth month of drought and the poor plants were struggling. The garden is set in an old sugar plantation with some of the buildings intact, others in ruins, all very interesting to explore. Placards describe the structures and... More

Even in the drought, this was a fantastic, memorable stop! The Gardens are beautiful and we were lucky enough to be there when the Flamboyant trees were in full bloom! We almost didn't' make time to see this little gem, but I'm so glad we did. I can't even imagine how stunning the gardens must be when they get regular... More

For a nice day off from the beach, this was nice for those who enjoy nature and discovering plants/trees/etc. that you may have never seen before. It is a self guided walking tour and you are free to spend as much time as you like. Nice visit and offers some beautiful photo ops. Keep in mind the current drought situation... More

St. Croix is going thru a terrible drought. Really isn't St. George Village Botanical Garden's fault. Unfortunately, most of the grounds are brown and or dried out. Some flowers and plants from the botanical garden's watering. I'm sure a visit to the gardens is much better when and if St. Croix gets their much needed rain.

We made a quick stop at the botanical garden & were amazed by all the beauties the garden held. We did a quick walking tour through a fourth of the 16 acres of sugar plantation ruins & beautiful gardens. It's a photographers dream. Our kids really enjoyed it also and wanted to stay longer. Our 8 and 11 year old... More

We are used to the Arboretum in Dallas so this was not of that caliber but, it is St Croix. Lots of great old Danish ruins on the sight add to alot of natural island beauty. Flowers even in a drought were spectacular.

This was one of the highlights of our trip. The gardens are stunning and we have some amazing pictures in the gardens. We loved the rainforest portion and learned about native plants and trees. We also learned some history about the plantation. Entrance fees were very reasonable and they have a wonderful gift shop. This is a must see in... More
