A former coconut plantation and agricultural research station, the gardens today have many exotic and native species. The caves have nine separate chambers, dimly lit with lanterns revealing stalagmites and stalactites. Fossils of fish and other sea creatures are seen in the limestone formation proving that Jamaica was once beneath the sea. One chamber has a ceiling forty feet high and is a favourite haunt for bats.
