Fodor's Review

Just off the highway, this garden park is on more than 300 acres of former sugar cane land. With wide views of the countryside and the ocean, this is the place to see the beautiful Kamaee waterfalls. You can also follow a walking trail with old-growth tropical gardens including orchids, palm trees, ginger, hibiscus, and heliconia; visit the 10-acre arboretum, which includes a maze made of orange shrubs; explore the river walk; ride the zipline; and take the only off-road

Segway adventure on the island. Admission into the gardens (not including zipline and Segway) is good for seven days; if you skip the zipline, you can see it all in a few hours.
