We were visiting Roatan on NCL's Sun and doing an afternoon tour of the island - our tour driver recommended as one of the stops for us for the day. The owner was very friendly and informative, you can tell that he loves what he does and it's more about sharing his garden the the true feel of the island... More

The area is beautiful and we saw all kinds of plants. The hike up the hill was good exercise. The view at the top was nice, but not spectacular. The negative was the service. The man working was not very helpful and seemed put off that we wanted a tour guide, so we did without. In the restrooms, the toilets... More

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our trek through the jungle. We had some members of our party they needed walking sticks the kind people there cut us some fresh ones. At the end of our walk there was a table with crash fruit for us to enjoy. One of my favorite stops on our trip to Roatan.

Visited here on an off-day from diving. We were given the special tour by Bill Brady as he gives all CoCoView Resort tours. This was a very special tour as Bill obviously has put alot of effort, time, and care into the gardens. I highly recommend this tour when you are finished diving for the week.

My husband and I came here on a tour with Marilyn as our tour guide. The young man at the gardens was very knowledgable and young!!! He knew a lot of how the plants help with different illnesses from his grandmother. Awesome place to visit.

The hike to the top of the "mountain" and the view once we got there, all the beautiful plants. We were given and very interesting run down on what to look for.

I came as part of a tour from my cruise ship. John our tour guide knew his stuff - down to the ages of the plants and what was native and what was brought over. The gardens are great to walk around - it is completely natural, so watch your step. We were able to taste fruit picked there and... More

We visited the Carambola Bontanical Garden as part of a half tour organised by CoCo View Resort. This part, we trully loved. Funny guide (owner who has a great sense of humor), beautiful trees & plants and a lot to learn. Highly recommended!

Just toured the garden on 9/10/2014 and it was amazing! The guide was very careful and he knew his stuff. I was just amazed at the trees and plants and how it was laid out and very well kept. The guide explained the different types of trees, palms, and plants and how they are used and they they are good... More
