“What an amazing place! From it’s centralized location between the airport in Coxen Hole and West End/West Bay to the relaxing, yet never boring family-friendly atmosphere. They are also great scuba instructors! I cannot swim and have a bit of a fear of water, but Eric and Diana had me out there in 30 feet of water in no time (after the proper prep and instruction of course). I cannot wait to go back to get certified! My stay could have only been better if it could have been longer. I will be back!”

Walk and Tour

Carambola Botanical Gardens

Begun in 1985, the Gardens showcase a wide variety of exotic plants. Situated along the banks of "Mahogany Creek,' a bridge with connecting walkways lead the visitor through areas of flowering plants, ferns, spices, fruit trees (cashews, carambola starfruit,) the very popular "chocolate trees", hardwoods including the world famous Honduran mahogany, and Roatan's most extensive orchid collection.

From the garden, a path leads to the summit of Carambola Mountain. A comfortable twenty minute hike will take you to the top. Be sure to take your camera and good walking shoes! Along the way you will see an area where nature has provided almost a sheer cliff - Thus protecting a natural iguana and parrot breeding ground historically known as the "Iguana Wall.' Also, visible along the way are ancient Indian archaeological sites that date back to the Mayan civilization.

Upon reaching the top, sit back and relax on the summit deck and enjoy Roatan's views. All the colors of the reef are laid out before you, and visible 25 miles to the west, overlooking historic Gibson Bight , and Utila , smallest of the bay islands. Another twenty minute walk will take you back to the valley and into the Garden.

It was in this valley in th year 1740 that a an English settlement was established. It was founded as a farming community for the purpose of supplying the many British "Man O War" and merchant ships that frequented this area. More then 275 years later, Carambola Gardens has restored the farming heritage and once again the valley abound with banana, plantain, exotic fruit trees and spices of all kinds...

“Between the inner and outer beaches,
a strand of woods thrived: palms, palmettos, mahogany, figs, and calabash.
Coconut palms and fig trees dropped enough fruit to feed the wildlife that swooped by in droves.
It was so easy to catch a fish with your bare hands,
Tristan and I had made a game of it during our weeks of lovemaking on the warm, supple sand.
It truly was paradise.”
