With a $10 per person special deal (usually $15), we were handed a (photocopied, poor quality) map and given a few directions. We wandered (aimlessly?) trying to identify trees, noticing that flowers and wildlife were almost non-existent. Things were poorly marked and labeled and much...More

Visited as an excursion booked through our cruise. We found it very interesting learning about the inhabitants of the area and the plants that grow here. I would definitely recommend a visit purely to see the local area and experience it.

A privilege to visit and be guided by a man who has dedicated his life to planting up many specimens. We saw mahogany trees, cashew trees, a hummingbird sitting on her nest and sampled fresh fruit at the end of our walk. Spectacular gardens, dedicated...More

We love this place but wish it had frequent visitors discounts. We love the hikes and the information on the plants we see around Roatan.

We enjoyed visiting the gardens during our stay on Roatan. The garden tour was informative and helped us learn about the local plant life. The hike through the rainforest was invigorating and we were rewarded with a beautiful panoramic view.
