  • For our first visit of the stay, very nice time spent with your family after the beach. Many plant species that then we will see during the stay.

  • A very wide variety of flowers and trees take the time you want to go around and the passage where you feed the parrots that come up on the great hands

  • Despite the rain, it's always a pleasure to come to this typical garden, filled with wildlife and flora of the West Indies.

  • This tiny jewel of a garden is worth every second it took for us to find it. Beautifully manicured property with meandering paths that provide well signed plants, original locales and sources. There is a beautiful waterfall (part man made), jumbo koi ponds where you can feed them. At the end there is goat petting zoo. Once you arrive they have a automated ticketing machine that takes Credit cards to avoid lineups. After the main entrance and past the giant koi pond, aim left to the small aviary where you will be greeted by free parrots looking for cups of syrup. They loved being neck scratched like a cat. Lovely day out. Expect a minimum of one hour to see the basics.
