We were here about 30 minutes and took several pictures. The plants and trees are amazing. Beautiful waterfall and a great place to take a picture with it in the background. We did a tour so this was one stop. Great place to see some wildlife as well.

Simply beautiful. We reached the waterfall after a short hike through the botanical gardens. Visitors are not allowed to get close to the falls because the rocks are not secure. We spent the extra money to swim in the sulfer pools. My skin was extremely soft from the minerals in the water. Visit if the length of your trip allows.

We went to the Diamond Botanical Gardens explicitly to visit the waterfall. It was $7 per person to get into the Botanical Gardens (there was an additional charge for the baths). We walked through the gardens and up to the waterfall quickly, so we didn't take in much of the gardens. The falls were pretty, but we had just come... More

At the end of the gardens is a waterfall formed from the volcanic waters which changes colour depending on what mineral is more prominent that day. Below the waterfall are mineral baths that you can pay to have a dip in which are supposed to offer healing powers. The gardens themselves have local plants and are well maintained. Does not...

It's a great excursion especially if you combine it with mud bath and snorkeling. It's starts at 8 am and finishes around 4 so it's an all day excursion if you do decide to add the other activities I just mentioned which also includes a really nice buffet lunch. And the price is really reasonable. $100 for adults and $50... More

It is not a large garden, and the waterfall is beautiful, but not huge; so if you are thinking of a grand site, this might not be it. But it is beautiful, with lots of exotic flowers, a good snack bar/souvenir shop, and our highlight, a mineral bath. There are two to choose from: the 'public' large tubs in the... More

My husband and I chose to do the Fountain of Youth excursion on our honeymoon. The gardens were very lush and pretty. Lots of paths to explore. However the mineral pools were a bit of a disappointment. I've been to hot spring pools in the states and these were subpar. I'd say it's worth a visit but for the adventurous... More

The waterfall is absolutely amazing! So beautiful. The only wish is that I would have LOVED to be able to stand in the waterfall. Our guide, Alexander the Great, was very helpful and informative during our entire experience. Definitely make this part of your experience while in Soufriere!

This is "part" of the tour but they make sure to remind you that they are volunteers and except tips. The tour is super slow and would be a lot better without a guide I much rather read the signs. Wouldn't go again.
