We saw more birds and animals here between 4-5:30PM than almost anywhere on our trip! the grounds are open and manicured allowing for great viewing. There are nice jungle walks as well.

I brought a college class to Belize and we toured the gardens with a guide twice: once for the medicine trail and activities at the Mayan House and once for a night walk to spot wildlife. The guide for each tour was excellent, with good breadth and depth of knowledge and patience with answering a barrage of student questions.
The medicine trail was terrific, and afterward we made traditional tamales in the Mayan House. While they cooked we learned how to make traditional Mayan brooms, put the group into teams, and went into broom making mode. The students had an excellent time, very engaged, and our brooms turned out well.
They have self guided tour books available, but I recommend setting up a tour with a guide. You'll learn a lot.

We stayed at DuPlooys and spent one afternoon exploring the gardens. Lots of trees and plants were marked so you knew what you were looking at. The Orchid house was lovely even though there were not many orchids in bloom in January. We really enjoyed the Mayan hut (complete with tools) and the Mayan medicine trail. We also climbed the tower and had a spectacular view of the surrounding area. Lots of different trails to take so make sure you take a map with you!

Enjoyed my trip to the Gardens, but it was a bit boring. A must see if you're looking for a day away from the adventures of Belize. It was quiet, serene and full of colorful flowers. Wouldn't go again, but glad I saw it once. Plants included cotton and exotic fruits.
