I am not a big plant person, but I was impressed by the beauty and variety here. The view is incredible, and the flocks of humming birds are amazing. A definite "Must" when visiting Martinique.

As said, this botanical park gives you a great overview of the Carribean plants and flowers. A bit overpriced to me, but worth to be visited.

Value for the money. Adults: 13€ A walk through the garden will take you app. 1 -1,5 hour. Beautiful flowers and trees/palms. Stunning view. Colibri birds. Must visit in the mountains. The ride to the garden is also beautiful.

Very enjoyable excursion with a guife that was simply terrific. She knew everything about everything! Totally captivating. The gardens were beautiful and the suspension bridge was pretty cool. Would recommend if you have about 2 hours to spare.

Anyone who enjoys beautiful gardens should visit here. Unfortunately it was raining during our visit so we probably missed out on some things - however, it was worth getting wet for! Beautifully laid out and perfectly maintained. We recommend a visit here.
