Overview of Blue Harbor Tropical Arboretum

Blue Harbor Tropical Arboretum is Roatan’s working ”Tropical Eden” covering over 160 eco-friendly acres. Here you will find uniquely spectacular tropical display gardens, seasonal fruit and nut orchards, the only tropical botanical “Conservatory” with a 12 ft waterfall in the Caribbean and over 70,000 heads of lettuce and herbs in a working hydroponic produce and herb farm.

The fruit and nut orchards include over 400 mature cashew trees and a large variety of citrus fruits such as pink grapefruit, Persian and Key limes, Mango, pineapple, Noni, Carambola (also known as Star Fruit) and many more. Recently, Blue Harbor Tropical Arboretum planted a new orchard of 900 cashew trees and have exciting plans for working with native islanders to form an island co-op for the commercialization of local cashews. In addition to their collection of exotic species of tropical fruit trees, they have acres of different varieties of Heliconias, Gingers, Orchids, Hibiscus and other beautiful tropical flowers.

Because of Blue Harbor Tropical Arboretum's eco-friendly focus they use no pesticides on their produce and herbs, and are very sensitive to their water usage and controlling the mountain run off of our island’s 144 inches of rain. Blue Harbor Tropical Arboretum has developed an extensive ground and drip irrigation system and built a 2,300,000 gal retaining pond to control soil erosion and pollution of the coral reef while providing the water necessary for a tropical farming operation that has a 6 month dry season.

Blue Harbor Tropical Arboretum has a nursery where they grow plants and flowers for sale either in the local market or for hotels, restaurants and special events.

"Not a lot of pizza options on the island, but this place is amazing! We had the delicious "Boricua", and it was so big we had to take it home as leftovers. Nice clean atmosphere and friendly staff.
