The gardens are lovely. A nice size to enjoy a stroll around. There are waterways, with ducks and geese. Humming birds can be seen too. Other animals can be seen too.

This attraction is very interesting and you do learn a lot about medicinal and eatable plants. Nice walk through beautiful gardens with waterways and conservatory. Also fun to see the hydroponic operations as the island depends on the crops grown here.

We've been to Roatan several times and each time we hear about the 'lettuce farm' - all the resorts and restaurants have great fresh salads. The greens that are used in the salads are grown locally on the island at "the lettuce farm". The Blue...More
