  • Love the gardens. The admission. Of $ 6. Is worth every dime. Would research events that are held there. They can get costly for it it offers. Remember a lot of these events are sponsored and not part of the museum. Example. Went to the Guava Berry festival and there were no berries. If you go go for the gardens.
  • Beautiful gardens with an amazing staff and fantastic historic buildings and ruins set among the plants. One of my favorite spots on the island, hands down!
  • Beautiful plants. We did the hour long self tour path to see the whole garden. They had a plants from a variety of areas. Set amongst the ruins of a sugar plantation, the entire garden is lovely.
  • Nice place. Wish they had more signs with plant names for the person who had no clue of what plants I was looking at on the self guided tour.
  • There's lots of fresh air and beautiful greenery.
