The 100% natural 40 acres of the Carambola Botanical Gardens and their many jungle trails offer a perfect place for hiking, wildlife and scenic photography, eco tours, bird watching, nature studies, and of course, relaxation. So, "take a walk on the wild side" and watch the playful Monkey La La scurry along jungle trails as you enjoy flowering plants, orchids, medicinal plants, exotic spices, fruit and nut trees, including the very popular "Chocolate Tree" and the world famous Honduran mahogany tree.

We were on a scuba trip to Roatan and took this as a side attraction. We didn't really expect much because this is not really our kind of thing, but we couldn't have enjoyed more. Bill gave the tour and he's an incredible wealth of knowledge. Coffee, vanilla, cinnamon, chocolate, it's all growing here. And you get the background on... More

We so enjoyed this natural habitat of plants, flowers, hummingbirds, butterflies and paths thru nature. A spectacular Cannonball tree was in full bloom! Enjoy a presentation about native fruits and nuts. A $20 taxi trip from the cruise dock and $10 admission. Worth every penny. The terrain can be a little uneven but navigable. Don't miss this!

If you like flora, don't miss this garden. Not only can you do it by yourself but you can do a guided tour also. It's like being in the rain forest with plant signs. So dense that it actually rained during our visit and we only had a few drops hit us. Great place to spend a few hours with... More

For ten dollars per person to get in you can't go wrong visiting. The gardens are well kept and you can see you very neat things. My favourite part was the view from the observation point which requires a twenty minute hike through the jungle to the top of a hill/mountain.

Seriously, this is one of the most beautiful hikes I’ve ever gone on in my life. I highly recommend making this a stop on your trip – if only for 2 hours. They have every jungle tree imaginable, all labeled for your scientific enjoyment. And the 20 minute hike to the top of Carambola Mountain was so beautiful I didn’t... More

We took the mountain trail to see the view...definitely worth it. There are signs along the way to keep you pointed in the right direction; at times the trail split and there wasn't a sign so it wasn't clear which way we were supposed to go, but I imagine it doesn't actually matter and the trails end in the same...

This is a gorgeous botanical gardens located across the road from Anthony's Keys. It offers a wide variety of flora with lovely walking paths throughout. A very knowledge guide discussed a wide array of local edibles on display. I decided to hike the Carambola Mountain trail to the top. Well worth the views of the keys and ocean below! Don't... More

Whilst these gardens were not large, they are well set out and it you are patient then you will see wildlife. We virtually had the gardens to ourselves which meant we could take our time and savour the visit. As well as the flora we also saw Geckos, Monkey Lalas and humming birds. Well worth a visit during you stay... More
