Welcome to Blue Harbor Tropical Arboretum, Roatan’s working ”Tropical Eden” covering over 160 eco-friendly acres. Our location offers gorgeous tropical botanical gardens and fruit orchards for you to explore, plus amazing local nature and stunning ocean vistas from our hiking trails. Come see our extensive grounds that highlight the best of Roatan’s natural beauty and splendor.

Our tours include guided tours of our botanical gardens, conservatory and fruit orchards, nature hiking, bird watching, and even a mud run and obstacle course for more active travelers. With our tropical gardens and miles of walking trails maintained year-round for guests and locals to enjoy, Blue Harbor Tropical Arboretum provides a safe and stunning location to appreciate the natural wonders of Roatan.

A visit to Blue Harbor Tropical Arboretum should include a tour of our hydroponic farm, which is leading the way in water conservation and sustainable farming practices. We believe that hydroponic farming is the future for safer, fresher, longer-lasting produce in your kitchen. Because of our eco-friendly focus we use no pesticides on our produce and herbs, and we are very sensitive to our use of the island’s resources.

If your cruise ship stops in at either the Port of Roatan in Coxen Hole or at Mahogany Bay, you can take advantage of the beauty and convenience of Blue Harbor Tropical Arboretum. We offer shuttle service to pick you up and drop you back off at your port in a timely manner, making your visit a convenient and enjoyable shore excursion.

Whether you want a relaxing day exploring our botanical gardens or an active day hiking through the gorgeous tropical jungle, visit Blue Harbor Tropical Arboretum for a day of outdoor fun with your family and friends. Plan your visit today!
