spending a day at this place is so relaxing, I love nature and watching so many plants and flowers was really beautiful, plus the long walks and swimming at Posa el Maule was the best treat at the end

This place is very close to Tela and it is a good place to spend half to an entire full day. Lots of plants and a nice stream where to cool off during the hot day. Not a great place to eat, so pack a lunch bag from your hotel as the food at the little restaurants is substandard.

Such a beautiful place that is also very important. We had a tour through our stay at Indura resort and our guide was so very knowledgeable. It is amazing to think that there is such diversity of plant life across the world that can then be grown in one place.

Loved been able to see many different species of plants all in one place. The staff and guides were very informative, knowledgeable and polite. Was a delight to tour the garden. Will return again in the near future.

We had toured the Forestry School at Siguatepeque, so we knew that this sister place would be an excellent place to visit. We got a guide person to take us through the tree walk. Her knowledge was superb and she was so enthusiastic about the collection. The park is about TREES, not flowers, but do not let that deter you.... More

The drive from the cruise ship dock showcased most of the island. The hills were a pleasant surprise. I expected it to be flat. No! It was hilly and beautiful. Once there the plant diversity was wonderful. So much color. Loved the lizards but would have loved to bring home one of the monkeys or birds. The staff was great... More

It has a lot of potential but I think it needs more maintenance, there is no good interpretation as signs, etc, you have to hire a guide and I don like that I prefer doing things by myself.

It was a long and bumpy ride to get to Lancetilla, but very worth it. The grounds are beautiful and the guides are extremely knowledgeable about the plants, flowers and trees on the grounds. Be advised that the guides only speak Spanish.

The potential of this place is fantastic. But as is so often the case there is a real lack of aspiring to be a special location for tourists. Much of the natural beauty of Honduras is incredible but there is so much waste, poverty and debris everywhere that it often leaves you with a feeling of sadness rather than feeling... More
