We easily spent two hours here, doing the extended self guided walking tour. Intermittent rain delayed us some, but mostly added to the adventure (raining while we walked through the rain forest, for example). Wonderful variety of fabulous flowers, trees, plants. We got a little off track following the map at the end, but otherwise well worth the entrance fee.

We planned a whole day around going to the gardens. Maybe people had hyped it too much or something, because we had a horrible day. We used the restroom when we finally had had enough, and left feeling that we'd spent eight bucks just to go to the bathroom. It started badly when the minute we'd paid our money a... More

The Botanical Garden is a terrific way to spend a few hours. The extensive and diverse gardens are carefully structured, with plants helpfully labeled as to name(s) and uses of each plant. Sharing the landscape of a former sugar plantation, the garden provides insights into the natural and colonial history of the area, including the slave history. Ruins of the... More

Stopped here as part of a cruise excursion. Beautiful grounds, and our guide had a lot of information to share. Nothing exciting here, but if you enjoy plants and seeing things you wouldn't see at home, it was worth it.

We went by mid-week and was suprised by the natural setting and walking paths. There were several old ruins for the early 1900s with documentation of each landmark. Step back in time and spend a few hours looking into St.Croix history

What can I say, I grew up visiting this Garden as a kid, and finally went back after so many years. The beauty is just stunning and Botanical Garden, is just peaceful, quite, beautiful and just a place where you can just walk, and enjoy the beauty. So much history and its just a must see.

I really enjoyed my visit here. I spent about 2 hours here leisurely walking the lovely gardens within the ruins of an old sugar plantation. I loved the historical feel. Great place for photos.

This was a must see. I love going to botanical gardens when I travel and this had history and a great variety of things to see. Fresh fruit from fruit tress, fruit bats, and a rain forest. Lots of walking outside, so be sure to bring sunblock.

Pretty but it's gets really hot real quick. The good thing is its good to go through it relatively fast. It's very well taken care of as well and a beautiful scenery for great pictures.
