Fodor's Review

Just off the highway, this garden park is on more than 300 acres of former sugarcane 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 zip line; and take the only off-road Segway adventure on the island. Admission into the gardens (not including zip line and Segway) is good for seven days, and admission to the two adventures gives you a free pass to the gardens for seven days. If you skip the zip line, you can see it all in a few hours.
