There is not much labeling of the plants yet here, but ultimately there will be. There are Lesser Antillean iguanas in a large cage - perhaps for a captive breeding program. Plenty of birds and lizards such as the red-faced ground lizard to be seem....More

The botanical garden has a free entrance, but is not easy to reach. It is situated at the eastern point of the Island. The small access road is not very well maintained, but can be used by cars (slowly driving). I cannot say there is...More
