We had come full circle, standing on the top of the hill looking out at a large bay surrounded by turquoise waters and doted with a handful of houses. Back in 2011, my husband and I visited this garden while on a cruise. So enchanted...More

I have mixed reviews about this one. Let me preface by saying that we booked this through the cruise line which usually costs more than what you would pay if you did an independent tour. So my main issue is with the cruise line and...More

Excellent activity if inclined to explore. The inner pathways are well groomed and lead to a number of exotic collection areas many of which in bloom. The hike to the look out was something else...a real feel of the more wild side of the natural...More

Many short paths with benches and small pavilions scattered about. Plants labeled here and there. Some demonstration areas, but seemed like just for booked groups. Independent exploration was fine and worth some time. I did not go up the mountain path, but with a little...More

Nice place to spend a few hours in the shaded gardens, hike to the view point overlooking Anthony's Key. Not as many birds, insects, flowering plants as I expected. I would recommend going along the hiking trail to the top and putting up direction signs...More

Fun, but sweaty hike for a great view of Anthony's Key. Saw a Roatan coral snake and a long yellow "vine snake". Absolutely beautiful cannon ball tree covered in blossoms.

My family (four adults and four kids under 10) had a wonderful experience at Carambola. Mr. Brady himself gave us a tour of the garden, taught us about different species of plants and trees, and gave us some history of Roatan. It is clear that...More

Loved it. It is beautiful. They have Cannonball trees. Super cool! And the hummingbirds are amazing. Well worth a visit. The gift shop has very nice handcrafted items

My trip was part of an island tour, booked from the cruise I was on. But there were lots of independent operators at the port.

You probably have the answer you need - however, your aunt COULD visit the gardens if she was content to stay in the lower part near the entrance building. There are places to sit and the trails are pretty easy to navigate... More
