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

Loved it. wished the Iguana wall trail was in service when we were there. The rest was great. The owner met us and gave us a personal little tour and explained the map. We saw lots of lizards, plants and birds. I have been twice since I started going to Roatan in 2004,. Wear comfortable clothing and good shoes. It... More

Owned and operated by a Peace Corp volunteer who went to Roatan in the 1980s and never got around to coming home. There are some nice plants, and some nice sitting spots, but the air is pretty still unless you take the half-hour hike up the trail to the top, where, I am told, the view is rewarding.

My wife, 15 y.o. twins and myself had a great time here. The garden is beautiful, thoughtfully laid out and well kept. We saw leaf cutter ants marching in line bringing their "little leaf" like sails back to their nest to be fermented for food, very cool, just like the National Geographic. There is also a mountain path to the... More

This is Bill Brady's labor of love since 1985. He guided three of us. Very informative and it was such a quiet, welcome break from the bustle of West Bay. I always like to find out about local flora wherever I visit, and Carambola was great.

We spent about an hour and a half here, doing a leisurely pace up to the lookout on Carambola mountain which overlooks the Caribbean Sea and Anthony's Key Resort. We could also spot the dolphins jumping out of the water during their show at the dolphin reserve which was pretty cool. On our way down we checked out the leafcutter... More

This is a nice place to visit. We took the unguided tour, which may have been a mistake because some of the paths weren't clearly marked so we weren't sure if we were going in the right direction. We had a map but it didn't help much. Also, rain caused the ground to be a little slippery in a few... More
