About
We are open on Tuesday - Sunday from 9:00-4:00. Closed on Mondays. Reservations not required. We look forward to sharing Phantasea with our visitors and locals. The garden is full of beautiful blooming orchids, bromeliads, lilies, palms, and more. . Come and relax in the calming serenity of nature as lizards scurry about and butterflies and birds fly throughout the garden. Stop and rest in our Balinese gazebo or at our other seating areas. Visit our resident wildlife - parrots, tortoises, peacocks and chickens - and learn about the garden plants and inhabitants with our interpretive signs. Approx. 45 minutes - one hour average time to visit. Great for children and families. Cold water, tropical juices and snacks for sale. Blooming orchids and tillandsias (air plants) also for sale. Cash and credit cards accepted. Easy to find, just follow the signs posted along the roadways , or use Google maps.(DO NOT use GPS!) Masks required throughout the garden.

Worth the trip up the mountain!!! We had a wonderful time looking at all of the beautiful plants and would have stayed much longer if it wasn't so hot! We will be back!

Great tropical plant experience
Aug 2021 • Family
Not huge but very well done. The staff was friendly and casually shared information about the gardens and local area. Plants were well labeled and there were many informative signs to enhance our appreciation of our surroundings.

Peaceful Spot to Experience & Appreciate Nature
Aug 2021
Absolutely gorgeous wildlife sanctuary with knowledgable and friendly staff. Liz was particularly amazing! She went above-and-beyond to share fun facts about the garden's flora and fauna with enthusiasm. The informative signage throughout the walking trail was also very educational. We loved seeing gorgeous orchids and other plants, coexisting with hummingbirds, bananaquits, lizards, and tortoises.

Beautiful Tropical Gardens worthy of a short visit. Plants are unique to the region. Many stairs to climb.

We loved seeing the iridescent hummingbirds and the bananaquits. The garden was so cool, beautiful and relaxing. The staff was very informative and friendly. We would definitely visit again.

Felt like a Rain Forest!!
Jul 2021 • Couples
Needed a beach break!! Very unique place. Lots of tropical plants. Very educational. Lus Eleva talked to us and answered lots of questions about Phantasea and also the area. They have worked hard as the gardens were devastated by the hurricanes of 2017. The only downside is there are steps going down the side of the hill to view the gardens and when you go down you must climb back up!!

Absolutely Amazing!
Jun 2021 • Family
We passed this unexpectedly and made the decision to stop. Best find ever! It was amazingly beautiful and the owner took her time to teach us about the plants that we would see. As soon as we were done I wanted to go through again. The plants and wildlife were just stunning. Best non-beach destination on the island!!

Highlight of our trip!
Jun 2021
WOW. My friends and I loved this place. @LuzElena gave us a wealth of information about the native and non-native flora on the island as well as their uses. I would recommend wearing good walking shoes as you'll be going up and down winding paths. It's about 2 acres but feels a lot bigger. Can't say enough about how much we loved this place.

nice gardens
Jun 2021
This place appears to be the work of one or two ladies, who are still adding to it. The many orchids i expected to see were apparenlty not blooming at the time (there were a few). Lots of wildlife though - lizards, many birds, chickens , peacocks and a lovely lady to answer your questions and provide you with info.

The woman who worked here gave us a very interesting history of some of the plants that we would see, and the garden itself is beautiful!
