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

I don't have time to write all the things that I love about this place. I will post several pictures. I highly recommend taking the guided walking tour. It is just long enough, and it will give you a much better understanding of their culture. This is a gorgeous garden...Honduran Mahogany Trees, Chocolate Trees, Orchids, exotic spices, fruit and nut... More

Not as "professional" as most Botanical Gardens but a nice walk thru to see the "collection " of the local plants and flowers. Worth it if visiting

While diving at Anthony's Key Resort, my husband and I took time to spend an afternoon across the street from the resort at the Carambola Botanical Gardens. The owner and curator, Bill Brady, was there to greet us and gave us an overview of the property and its history. The gardens are supported mainly by entry fees ($10 per person... More

This was a cruise excursion off the Carnival Conquest for Isla Roatan Honduras. We chose this tour that also had an island sightseeing feature. Our guide and driver, John and Fordie, took very good care of us. You are transported from Mahogany Bay (port) to the gardens and the west end of the island by 15 passenger bus. Very comfortable!...

I love this tour and try and bring friends and family when they visit. It is such a wonderful tour to see all of the lush plants and learn a little about each of them is so enjoyable.

The owner and creator of these gardens leads the tours. THe gardens are spectacular. They are laid out so it seems you are winding your way through a completely natural tropical forest, not at all like an artificial place.

We needed a break from the sun, so decided to take a few hours and go hiking. We took a cab from West Bay (I believe it was $25 RT) to the gardens... we were the only ones there so we had the place to ourselves. The caretaker spoke spanish (hubby does too) and so he answered our questions... we... More

My wife and I spent an afternoon there on a recent trip to Roatan. There are beautiful meandering paths around the mostly shaded areas. There is a moderately strenuous hike to the top of a small mountain that provides a great overlook of the Caribbean. I would recommend this place.

After we found someone to pay for entry, this place was awesome. If you like plants and flowers, you can't miss this place. They have water there, so if you plan the trip to the overlook buy some water. Trip to the top was about a half hour hike. Worth the view for a bit of sweat. My wife just... More
