While visiting Roatan, you should enjoy a tour to the breathtaking grounds of Blue Harbor Tropical Arboretum. This ”Tropical Eden” boasts 160 eco-friendly acres of uniquely spectacular tropical display gardens, seasonal fruit and nut orchards, a tropical botanical “Conservatory” with a 12-foot waterfall, and over 70,000 heads of lettuce and herbs in a working hydroponic produce and herb farm.

Their fruit and nut orchards include over 400 mature cashew trees and a large variety of citrus fruits. In addition to their collection of exotic species of tropical fruit trees, there are acres of different varieties of beautiful tropical flowers.

Because of their eco-friendly focus at Blue Harbor Tropical Arboretum, no pesticides are used in their produce and herbs. You can enjoy some of their fresh produce at The Red Porch restaurant on-site, or buy some for fresh salads you can prepare in your vacation rental all week!

Arboretum guides and landscaping gardeners are available to provide their expertise and insight. Various tour options include tours of the orchards and display gardens, hiking tours, and even bird-watching tours. This extensive area boasts stunning ocean views and endless acres of lush, beautiful jungle. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to see Roatan’s natural beauty!

Any activities that you book through Roatan Life Concierge can be charged directly to your rental unit. We just send you with a voucher to your excursion and you pay later, after the service is provided! This is especially convenient so that you do not have to carry around large amounts of cash or use your credit card at multiple locations. It is our policy to never mark-up the excursion cost; you will always pay the same price as if you walked up and booked on your own. At the end of your stay, you just let us know how you would like to settle up – cash, credit card or a mix of both.
