The gardens are lovely. A nice size to enjoy a stroll around. There are waterways, with ducks and geese. Humming birds can be seen too. Other animals can be seen too.

This attraction is very interesting and you do learn a lot about medicinal and eatable plants. Nice walk through beautiful gardens with waterways and conservatory. Also fun to see the hydroponic operations as the island depends on the crops grown here.

Lot's of different tropical plants and good variety of local animals. Lettuce growing facility was amazing as they provide all the lettuce for the restaurants and local stores. Very friendly staff.
