  • This area is magnificent, lush vegetation, we have even observed two hummingbirds, a small corner of paradise. But beyond that our guide showed us plants we eat often (nuts of nutmeg in its hull, root of turmeric, coffee bean, cinnamon bark, etc..) Do

  • They really take great pride in the botanical gardens here. Perfect for a short stroll. Beautiful flowers. The Diamond fall are pretty, but not necessarily for the price.
  • we were on our way to the volcano & made a side trip here. took a mineral bath which was heavenly in the private facility. very nice, clean & well maintained. the little gift shop is fine as well. a nice respite from our journey day in St. Lucia.
  • Seen better tropical gardens. Nice place to visit and walk around. Not as lush as you would expect. Better with a tour guide.
  • Was OK, rushed round it so didn't get a full experience
  • Every tropical plant which is native to the land of st.Lucia grows here.you don't need a guide because everything is well labeled
