Founded by Edwin Atkins and his wife in 1901, the garden covers an area of over 97 ha (239 ac). Having started off as a sugar mill, the area was eventually turned into a garden due to the owner’s passion, and has since expanded into a collection displaying over 2,000 plant species.

  • Visit in July impossible because of the mosquitoes. Greenhouses medium-sized but beautiful trees (Palm trees, fig trees...)

  • We were lucky enough to have to guide an extraordinary man named Hermes (the Messenger of the gods). This botanist who made the guide here talking about all languages, including the french, has the phone number of all the birds (which it does come) and give full of humor and poetry exciting explanations. Of course, the garden was abandoned but it is rich in many species of birds, trees and plants. Not to do without a guide because then you would spend next to a treasure. For us, the explanations of Hermes made this visit one of the highlights of our trip.

  • The Botanical gardens had some great trees and plants. Loved the cactus house!! Some of the trees and bamboo were massive!! It was pretty buggy though so bring bug spray  more »
