The 100% natural 40 acres of the Carambola Botanical Gardens and their many jungle trails offer a perfect place for hiking, wildlife and scenic photography, eco tours, bird watching, nature studies, and of course, relaxation. So, "take a walk on the wild side" and watch the playful Monkey La La scurry along jungle trails as you enjoy flowering plants, orchids, medicinal plants, exotic spices, fruit and nut trees, including the very popular "Chocolate Tree" and the world famous Honduran mahogany tree.

We thoroughly enjoyed the lush gardens and beautiful view from the summit. We stopped here near the beginning of our stay and were told that if we saved our receipt, we could return another day without paying again. We did return to enjoy the pathways...More

A great place to hike around in the jungle for a bit. It has a great view from the top of the mountain, and is a really great place to explore when the weather is less than perfect for the beach.

We spent only a couple of hours here, but enjoyed it thoroughly. The jungle trails are gorgeous. I'm sorry I missed the chocolate experience! A must do experience if you are visiting Roatan.

We just visited Roatan last week (and yes, it rained all day for several of the days) and loved our hike at the gardens. The trails were pretty muddy and washed out because of the large amount of rain they had gotten in the prior...More

These gardens were created by its owner, (William (Bill) Parks-Brady) largely by his own hands starting in 1985. It's rustic and full of charm and more tropical plants than you can imagine in one place! Chocolate trees are everywhere! Eden Boidomes it isn't, this is...More

What a wonderful experience. Had a Tour by the owner which was very in depth. Explained all the Flowers and fauna. Many Humming Birds flying near us. Sampled the Bananas, Pineapples and cantaloupe. Great insight to Honduras.

The hike was by far the best part, took about a half hour. We got the full jungle experience because it rained while we were there, they gave us umbrellas at the front desk, which also doubled well as walking sticks during the hike. The...More

You pay $10 usd per person to basically walk up the mountain and check out the view. Honestly the view is great. It made the hike up worth it. It wasn’t the easiest hike, I think a lot of the rain they have been having...More

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

Depending on how many times you stop to read about the plants, anywhere from an hour to two. If it sprinkles like it did when we were there, maybe a bit longer.
