Carambola Botanical Gardens
Carambola Botanical Gardens information
Across the road from Anthony’s Key Resort, the Carambola Botanical Gardens has well-maintained trails through 40 acres of protected forest, extending up a hillside known as Carambola Mountain. It’s about 1km to the ‘summit,’ where you can see all the way to Utila on a clear day. Along the trail you’ll encounter dozens of species of native plants, including orchids, spice plants, medicinal plants and fruit trees. You’ll also pass Iguana Wall, a cliff favored by iguanas and parrots, as well as remnants of pre-Colombian settlements. Reservations are required for guided tours.
