Nice place to spend a few hours in the shaded gardens, hike to the view point overlooking Anthony's Key. Not as many birds, insects, flowering plants as I expected. I would recommend going along the hiking trail to the top and putting up direction signs...More

Fun, but sweaty hike for a great view of Anthony's Key. Saw a Roatan coral snake and a long yellow "vine snake". Absolutely beautiful cannon ball tree covered in blossoms.

My family (four adults and four kids under 10) had a wonderful experience at Carambola. Mr. Brady himself gave us a tour of the garden, taught us about different species of plants and trees, and gave us some history of Roatan. It is clear that...More

Very beautiful place to visit with lush gardens many varieties of plants and flowers. Also, loved seeing some of the natural habit of bugs and the black & white iguanas. Truly a treat to see.

Beautiful botanical garden with easy walking trails, informative placards (all have English, some are bilingual), and several relaxing palapas. There's an optional hiking trail that leads to an impressive overlook of Anthony's Key Resort.

We spent a few morning hours walking/hiking in the Carambola gardens. Beautiful greenery but not too much colour as the flowers were not in bloom. Great place if you know your trees and plants as the map is not that accurate. We did not get...More

My trip was part of an island tour, booked from the cruise I was on. But there were lots of independent operators at the port.
