  • A pleasant stroll along a giege full of enormous trees and local plants. The pathway is well maintained (a lot better than the roads) and suitable for child buggies etc. There are monkeys within the g...  more »
  • We went there for 9 h, the tour is done on a path concreted so very easy access. The garden is lush, then we met the monkeys at the entrance of the Park. The healer gave them bananas at 10:30 sharp! Here it was just great to see completely free! We paid us $ 30 for three.

  • Stopped and went for a walk along an easy path to the far end of the gully. Really lovely plants and trees plus lots of the local monkeys! Limited parking and debatable if worth the price of entry.  more »

  • Definitely worth a visit if you are in Barbados! Although it would be nice to get the description about the plants in other languages than English
  • If you enjoy a sample of the jungle life in Barbados, give this place a try. A walking trail takes you through a preserved section of the jungle with signs and a guide sheet explaining the various flora of the forest. However, the highlight is in the beginning, where you are able to view the Green Monkeys. They are wild and may not be there every time, but at 10am we were there to see them for a feeding. Very fun to watch and take photos. Do not feed them by hand, you may lose said hang. Just a great place to watch nature. The trail is not long. It is a single path in and out, not looped. Oh and hot. And humid. With no breeze, but it's a jungle and that's how they are.
  • Beautiful place. There are steps that take you to a wonderful look out and there are many animals and plants to take in the beauty of.
  • Value for your money. Worth visiting. Relaxing trek through a gully.
  • Superb botanic park. We arrived late but they let us in and asked to lock the gate on our way out. We were too late to see the monkeys but it was nice seeing all this vegetation around in the middle of no where. Lot's of nice information you can learn a lot. Place is well maintained. I suggest you do not arrive too late.
