This is a beautiful garden. The owner is likely to greet you himself and give you a helpful introduction, and if you'd like a guide they are available for $10 more. However, the plants in the garden are also plainly marked so you likely won't need one. If you feel energetic, there is a steep hike to a view that... More

This stunning tropical garden is a must-see on Roatan. Meet the founder and owner Bill, who created the gardens after serving as a Peace Corps volunteer on Roatan. He describes it as a "labor of love" and that it clearly is. Take the hike to the top of the hill for one of the best views on Roatan, and savor... More

Hike all the way to the top to get a nice view of the ocean and Anthony's resort where they have dolphins. Nice collection of trees and plants.

Love the monkeys and Zip lining. Had the place to ourselves. Got a deal as it was Saturday and not busy and rainy season. Toured the facility, beautiful grounds, monkeys and Toucans play all over you which kids loved. Beach is nice and there is a pool to hang out at if you like.

We enjoyed visiting the gardens on a cloudy rainy day. Lots of interesting specimens. We especially liked some of the sculptures.

No dislikes. It was wonderful and ideal learning spot for children. Where else can you smell leaves from an Allspice tree or Cinnamon tree. You also learn about (and taste) various fruits and Coconuts. Have you ever seen a tree with huge Termite nest? Survival need, just dip into the nest and grab a handful of Termites, squash them and... More

Absolutely beautiful botanical gardens owned and run by North Carolina ex-pat who us trying to make a difference. The owner, Bill Brady, is passionate about environmental education and is a wealth of knowledge. This is a must see. He does the tour and you can learn a lot.

This is a place you must visit! The Carambola Gardens is a beautiful piece of paradise and a well kept secret in Roatan. Take a taxi ride or ask about any excursions from a crusing ship to this treasure. The owner and founder, Bill Brady, is very proud of his work. He will tell you and show you things won't... More

We visited Carambola as part of a tour from our cruise ship. We were shown around by the owner who was obviously very passionate about the place and very knowledgeable. He showed us all the various trees and plants and the exotic fruits which some of them bare. There are plenty of well trodden trails which regrettably we didn't have... More
