I like to go to various botanical gardens whenever I visit a place that has one. I enjoy gardening and photography, so this was on the list. It was somewhat disappointing. I expected an explosion of flowers, I got tropical rainforest. What I got for my $10 admission was a series of trails and sitting areas with a wide variety... More

Walked to the centre of town to catch the small local minibus which you cram in and pay US $1 each to get to the gardens, they stop right outside if you ask them. About $20 per person to get in from memory. Wonderful native trees... More

We enjoyed our morning visit to the gardens. We hiked to the lookout (a great workout and what a view at the top, would love to know the elevation as I couldn't find it anywhere) and enjoyed the plants and descriptions, seeing some lizards and hummingbirds. I wouldn't recommend the hike on a rainy day as the footing could be... More

Carambola Gardens is a very peaceful place to wander and enjoy the tropical plants of the island. There are self guided trails, areas to just sit and relax and enjoy the sights and sounds of the tropics or the hundreds of hummingbirds. You can hike a more ambitious trail to the top of Carambola Mtn. The views from up top... More

Had an amazing time looking at the beautiful plant life that we don't get to see in the US. I had no idea that was what chocolate looked like! The hike through the jungle up to the top of the mountain was fun and I certainly feel like the trip would not have been complete until we visited! The top... More

This was an amazing experience for my family and I. I feel so blessed to see these amazing animals in their natural habitat and not in cages! We did the deluxe deal which included the tour, the zip line and the beach and pool. We have a 10 and 7 year old and they absolutely loved it. Everything was great!

My husband and I like to go to various botanical gardens whenever we visit a place that has one so off we went. Thankfully it wasn't that far from where we were staying because it was somewhat disappointing. Perhaps it was the time of year? End of December. It was a nice little walk in the woods but very few... More

If you want to see more of the Carambola Botanical Gardens, I would suggest renting a car and doing it on your own, our tour booked on the ship was ridiculous.

My wife and children had amazing time. On a prior visit my children had gone to a different zipline park. This one, according to them was heads and shoulders above the other one. Personal attention was optimal.

We went to Roatan in caribbean princess cruise in Dec 2015 and took a private taxi (only USD 40 for day for 4 plus tips) to this gardens. Admission was USD 10 per person. Unlike a ship excursion we had flexible time and went beyond main trail and hiked the mountain (about 30 minutes and quite steep, good shoes, stick... More
