We love Botanical Gardens, and if you don't, this might not be your thing. Take bug spray and water. We esp. enjoyed the ruins, historical areas, palm gardens, healing plants gardens, and useful plants gardens.

We enjoyed strolling around this garden. The maps were easy to follow and the grounds were beautiful. Several ruins to visit. Many different flowers, fruit trees, cacti, etc. I would recommend this activity.

The garden was very beautiful and we were able to go on our own and check out the garden. We were given a map, and wandered around. It was awesome!

These Botanical Gardens are not to be missed while in St. Croix. I have toured them twice. They have numerous unusual plants plus structures left from the past in a large, wonderful setting that is very enjoyable to stroll through. The gift shop is worth a stop on the way out.

This place has some very interesting history, and the self-guided tour map is helpful. There are also lots of signs posts for more information.

My wife and I thought the gardens were a worthwhile use of our time. Although not really very extensive, the gardens do contain a remarkable variety of plant life. We toured the area in a little more than an hour but more time could have been spent if we had gotten there earlier. We have been told that it may... More

The staff, especially Denise in the Gift Shop, provide great information on the garden and about St Croix. Beautiful spot. Great place to leisurely walk and enjoy the garden and visualize the way it must have been in it's hay-day. According to St Croix standards, those doing the renovations have done an excellent job. As a side note, restrooms are... More

Not worth the $8 per person it cost to get in. Unfriendly people, grass needed cut, no plants to speak of no markings for trails to follow.

Very nice place to visit, very beautiful foliage and some cool ruins and stuff around, Great photo opportunities everywhere. But bring the bug spray! Unfortunately we were there shortly after a light rain and the mosquitoes had a buffet smorgasbord. I would say a must see though.
