Beautiful, fun, and a surprisingly good place to visit. Self guided tours but the director rushed out to give us some better understanding of its history. Definitely doable and the price is low for a St Croix tourist area.

For anyone who loves gardens, this is a must. Where else will you see cannonball and sausage trees? When we visited, a wedding was to take place. The Great Hall was decorated for 150 guests. Arrangements were made for a smaller group to witness the ceremony in the "wedding bower." Beautiful and exotic--even a bit of "jungle" as part of... More

A very nice walking tour of an old sugar cane plantation with a wide variety plants and trees. This is a self guided walking tour that take about an hour.

Very impressive walking tour of the garden. Other than the unwelcome attitude we received from the gate keeper it was a wonderful place to visit, lot of beautiful plants to see

Even though the island had been experiencing a drought during my visit, I was not disappointed. This garden is huge and it is beautiful. We truly enjoyed seeing and learning about the old buildings on the grounds as well.

We really enjoyed the botanical garden route which led us into the rainforest. I would recommend that you stay hydrated as it is a one hour walk to complete the entire route. Lots of great historic buildings along the way.

Our favorite part was walking through the path in the rain forest. It was very peaceful and got to see many different lizards and birds.

While some areas are kept up better than others, still a very interesting side-trip for us. Points out plants and trees more indigenous to St. Croix, and teaches some history as well. I did have a little trouble finding this place as St. Croix does not seem to believe in the use of street signs much, but a relatively minor... More
