Cactus and Succulents

Growing within the ruins of a 19th century sugar factory, the Cactus and Succulent Garden contains native and exotic species, some rare or endangered.

The collection focuses on species from Cuba to Trinidad with emphasis on Central America and the Greater Antilles.

Visitors are always amazed at the diversity of form and structure these plants display, as well as the beauty of their flowers and fruits, some of which are used locally for food and cosmetics.

Local ground doves can frequently be seen nesting at eye-level within the long protective cactus spines.
