Beautifully layed out, very nice level walking paths. The entire place is absolutely spotless, all the trees and plants are clearly identified. The hydroponic houses full of many varieties of lettuce are a special treat. There is a snack and cold drink facility. Angel, our tour guide and general manager, is a wealth of information. The tropical plant pavilion, complete... More

We loved learning about all the exotic fruiting plants in their collection. Orville was a terrific guide and very thorough, and we definitely had a lot of questions that he answered. I wish I had a pen and paper to write all the names of plants and fruits down. The matasabor was the best experience, thank you!!

This is a lovely botanical location. However, unless you really know your stuff, you must take the guided tour. We had an excellent tour guide and enjoyed munching on fruit picked straight from the trees as we walked around the beautiful grounds. Afterwards we tasted more tropical fruit and tried one of those crazy berries that changes all sour flavors... More

This was a great visit. We ended up taking a guided tour with Anna, who was extremely knowledgeable about the variety of trees and fruits. At the very least, kids would enjoy the tour seeing the ducks and chickens who follow you around the area of the conservatory waiting to be fed. One cute duck was "Daffy", a real ham.... More

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
