Stroll across the 37 hectares (91 acres) of SSR Botanic Garden and explore the preserved plant life of the Southern Hemisphere's oldest botanical garden. Admire the neatly maintained gardens and their luxuriant vegetation, including the giant water lilies of the park's main pond, abundance of sugar canes, and over 85 varieties of palm tree. Named after the attractive grapefruit tree that grows in the region (thought to have been introduced by the Dutch), the garden boasts decorative plants as well as fruit trees, all giving an excellent introduction to the agricultural and culinary heritage of the island nation.

  • A fantastic way to spend a sunny afternoon. The gardens are very well kept and the wide selection of different plants from around the world is very impressive. I highly advise paying the 75rs for the guided tour, it's really helps to get the most out of the gardens. The guide we had was funny and informative and without the guide I think it would be far too easy to rush around and not get much out of it.
  • A beautiful tropical paradise. One of the most beautiful places I have ever been in! This is definitely something to tick off on your travel list. I had a wonderful experience,customer service at the gate was amazing. Wear comfortable shoes and clothes, pack your water and a snack bar. I’d advise to apply some inspect repellant. Go early so that you can spend more time exploring and savouring the gardens
