A beautiful old and diverse garden and passionate people running it. Worth a stroll but even more a guided tour during which you'll for sure learn a lot about tropical flowers, trees and spices. Well done! They also sell a beautiful home grown vanilla.

The garden is wonderful but they only offer French speaking guides. There are no signs of anything, so if you don't speak French quite well it will only be a garden with a lot of plants to you. On top, I found their shop to...More
