Beautiful waterfall and some beautiful banyan trees in this tropical little garden. The waterfall is like silk flowing over smooth rocks. Looks like about 10m high in small cascades. The guard and the keepers took $20 from a tourist couple and never gave them a receipt. They also didn't want to give me a receipt for the four of us that went there. No prices upfront to tell you how much it is.
The gardens are beautiful and intresting to explore. If you have the time there is a beautiful pool near the bottom of the waterfall that is fed by a spring. Great way to cool off. So remember a swimsuit. If you are on a tour off a cruise ship you probably won't have time.
