We go here on every trip to Barbados. Every time we visit they have made more improvements. The walkway is now all cement and easy to walk on. Their brochure has great info on the trees and shrubs with numbers to be able to make sure you get all the detail you need. On sunny days in the morning you... More

Nice attraction, love to see the monkeys but upon my second visit I know why I really don't like this place so much, the damn milipedes that cover the walkway. I mean it is expected to see all types of little creatures hanging around but ugh nonetheless lol. Great attraction though, dint let the little creatures keep you away like... More

I REALLY wanted to see the monkeys- the only reason we did this tour. We got there before 10:30am- no monkeys. Very disappointed. It was a beautiful walk through the "jungle", but no monkeys. :(

Easy walk with the family in the lovely forest. Great if you are interested in nature and plants. We pushed our 3years old in a pram with no problem. Staff was amazing, came to meet us with umbrellas as it starting to rain heavily. The monkeys were a great final treat!

Beautiful walk through the jungle forest. We did it in the morning getting there about 1020am. Unfortunately by noon we did not see any monkeys. There is a snack stand with cold Banks beer which was rather nice after a walk in the humid jungle. We did see 3 monkeys on the road on our drive back to The Crane.

Maybe it's because I came on a rainy day (they do have umbrellas for you!), but this place wasn't anything spectacular to me. It did feel like I was walking through a rainforest, but that's about it. No flowers, no monkeys, just different kinds of trees and foliage. I didn't think it was worth it for the price ($12 US)

If you love a monkey then 2pm is feeding time. I'm all for enjoying the freedom of animals so a great pleasure for me to see this group created over time by the environment they are in. Other than monkeys it's really like walking through a jungle with education along the way of differing trees, foliage and gorgeous plants.

An ancient forest which came about as part of the nearby caves collapsed. Many and varied types of plants and trees, some imported from other countries. Stalactites and stalagmites on show from the old cave system. Forest inhabited by monkeys which are fed on a constructed platform. Spend as long as you want, allow at least an hour. National trust...

Loved the visit here! We saw monkeys eating, and walked on a gorgeous trail of native and introduced plants.
