This is a lovely place to go for all ages, make sure to take the tram for the tour, and see how coconuts are opened, hear and see the various plants that are raised here, and some of the history behind it.

This is a wonderful stop on your way into Iao Valley. Unfortunately, the owners decided to close it and put it up for sale. I hope someone purchases it and reopens this great Maui attraction.

We visited the Tropical Gardens in 2011. Wonderful, loved them. Since then we tried in 2014 and 2015 to go again but they were closed, with a For Sale sign. Hope they are open again and we can visit this September. Had orchids sent home which were packed great and have bloomed many times.

This must have been beautiful at some time but it is run down and disappointing if you are looking for a pleasant walk.

It lasted about 50 minutes and was interesting and informative. Our guide did a great job explaining about the different plants and what they're used for---like how hula... More
