The Carambola Botanical Gardens and Nature Trails are approximately 20 minutes from the Coxen Hole and Mahogany Bay cruise ship ports. This tour allows you to explore this attraction at your leisure. The tour guide will explain the surrounding landscape and answer any questions you may have.
The botanical gardens and many jungle trails found here are perfect for hiking, wildlife, and scenic photography. Orchids, medicine plants, and exotice spices are just a few things you will get to see and learn about. The Honduran Mahogany Tree and the well known Chocolate Tree can be found here as well.
For the more adventurous, take a small hike to the summit of Carambola Mountain. There you will have the opportunity to experience incredible panoramic views of the second largest reef in the world. But before you get there, your journey will lead you through the tropical rainforest and a sheer cliff known as the "Iguana Wall", where it has historically protected the iguana species and provided breeding grounds for parrots.
You will have the opportunity to visit the West End Village for some shopping and lunch after the gardens and trails tour. This stop will be provided at no extra cost when booking this tour. However, please let us know upon booking this tour if you wish to visit West End. This will allow us to accommodate you and set aside the required time for the second stop before returning to your cruise ship for departure.
