    Grapefruit garden is a nice place. There was any price take a guide that you pay directly; In effect this allows to go directly to trees and other plants that are scattered throughout the Park. You can see many exotic species and some animals including birds, the flying foxes (big bat) and big tortoises. Less ordered and structured than the gardens of Balata in Martinique for those who know but to do. A pretty place.
