The Barbados National Trust owns this lush tropical garden, which contains specimens of plants -- many of them labeled -- that were here before the English settlers landed in 1627 and later imports that include cocoa bushes, and trees from which both cloves and nutmeg are produced. Occasionally, you'll spot a wild monkey amid the flora. You can also see breadfruit trees that are supposedly descendants of the seedlings brought ashore by Captain Bligh, of Bounty fame.
