We didn't realize it was going to be on an old plantation estate where the work force had been slaves. Many ruins maintained & incorporated into the garden plantings. Much of the garden is naturally planted, the remainder planted by hand. Includes a walking trail through the rain forest. Island history everywhere; the Crucians are more accepting of their slave...

Can't pass up a Botanical Garden, right? The little museum house towards the back is a quick and fun intro to the culture of the islands from the earlier days. You'll find plants growing wild that you might have seen at your local nursery and thought them exotic. The area with the water lilies is quite lovely.

We went here for the local festival "mango melee". It was your average summer time local festival with food vendors and people selling things they have made. They had a very impressive display of mangoes and other local fruits. I had no idea how many types of mangoes there were! We were underwhelmed by the festival (limited food options and... More

We have been to the botanical garden twice, each during a special event. The first time was around Christmas and most recently for the mango festival. On a normal day I am sure the garden is quiet and a great place to take in some of land based beauty here. Most plants are labeled and it is a great place... More

There was no staff on the day we went except the ticket taker, and she was lovely. This facility has seen better days and looks a bit neglected.

We took a wonderful self-guided tour of the garden. There were so many interesting plants to see and read about. I loved seeing and reading about the 'pain killer' tree. By way of the plants, you learn a lot about the culture of the island.
