I visited this property several years ago and Bill and Lucy, the owners, told me of their dream to create a botanical garden. I looked at the land and I thought, "ok, this will be interesting." The land was just the neglected, junglely land you see around the islands: impossible to access and rife with mosquitoes. Coming back to take the tour, I was astonished. The access to the land, the huge variety of terrain and plants, the beauty and scents and colors. I had a million questions that I didn't know I would even think of before I was on the tour: well answered by the guide (a very high energy gal with a PhD in ethno-botany). My favorites are the huge variety of palms that I have never seen before and the cacao grove (accompanied by an excellent and informative chocolate tasting that included an amazing chocolate produced on site from their own beans.) Also experienced: I tasted fruits that I never knew existed. I highly recommend the tour: a real bargain at the price. (I ended up making an unsolicited donation to the gardens.)
