Barbados Botanical Gardens

I am trying to fit some botanical gardens into an upcoming cruise.  I noted that Barbados has a few.  Does anyone have any recommendations or advice.  I would like to spend at least a few hours, maybe more, at the gardens.  Which garden? Recommendations on transportation or guide service?

 

Thank you.

Thank you.  

Best informative guided tour, in DW opinion, was Andromeda.  Excellent value, think it was a flat fee of $100 regardless of number.  A small gratuity is greatly appreciated.

Best to check direct as to any current COVID restrictions.

Taxi from Cruise Terminal and work on maximum of $50 including tip.

I highly recommend Hunte's garden. Andromeda is beautiful too, but on the east coast. Hunte's is in the center of the island and Anthony Hunte lives there and is a wonderful host.

We also really enjoyed Hunte's garden.  Mr. Hunte is an amazing person to talk with, and is a very genial host.  In addition to his beautiful plants, he also has some unique sculptures throughout his garden.
