We have been going to this place for years and it has gotten better over the years as they expand. My sister-in-law got married there two years ago and it was very nice.

My husband and I went to this last week. It was so beautiful and really informative. First off though, because we are not great at planning we didn't have a confirmation before we left so the one time we bought internet on the cruise ship we had to take care of it all. It wouldn't be totally settled so we... More

My wife and I spent a couple of hours in our May 2014 trip to Roatan at the Blue Harbor Tropical Arboretum. She loves plants and I love photography, so it was a perfect place for both of us to really enjoy. There are many fruit trees in the collection, many of which are strikingly beautiful. The indoor garden and... More

The gardens are actually well laid out and offer a wide variety of plants. They have a orchard side and a hydroponic side where they grow lettuce and herbs. Orchard side tour is $15 and another $8 to add the hydroponic side. We both thought that $15 would be fair for the whole thing, or maybe even $18 for the... More

We really enjoyed our tour of the Blue Harbor Tropical Arboretum. Our tour guide, Helen was very knowledgeable and very interesting to talk to. The variety of plants, flowers & trees was incredible. You can go on a self-guided tour but why would you want to? We learned so much and the taste-testing of the fruits was a definite high-light.... More

Took a self guided tour of the Arboretum which included the conservatory & animal sanctuary. This place is so peaceful. Ana was so nice to point out all the different fruit trees they have in the arboretum. After the tour, we were able to sample the different fruits in season. We highly recommend visiting this beautiful hidden gem!
