  • Follow the main road running through the village (North East), suddenly the road turns, on the inside, just after the bend, an old door is almost hidden under vines, it's here. The tour is guided and free (although a donation is strongly desired by the end of the visit). The garden is nice, rather interesting comments and even an effort is made to speak french, it's remarkable and valuable (worth a bonus on the tip). The small bar allows to ask for calm, for a while of to refresh with a Coc... forgiveness, a fresh Cuba Cola...

  • This place is my favorite local spot. You can visit with parrots and a jutia, see local fruit growing including cacao, and there's a cheap and well-stocked bar inside. The guide is entertaining and educational, if you opt for an informal tour.
  • While the botanical garden is nice it will not throw you over board with regards to the variety of plants in the garden. However, the little "casa particular" within it was charming with the lady owner cooking the best homemade food every evening.
  • Worth a short visit, excellent guide but don't expect too much from the garden.
  • Not worth it. Small place. Better go to Soroa's Orquideario.
  • Looks like someones Backyard. Still a nice place to catch some shade.
