Concierge.com's insider take:

More than 1,500 native and introduced species flourish here amid the well-preserved ruins of a 19th-century slave village. There's also an orchid greenhouse and a "rain forest" area (it's helped along by misters). As you wander the grounds, keep a safe but watchful distance from the "monkey no climb" tree (it has a spiked trunk) and the "touch me not" plant (it has thorns on its leaves). Sweeny Toussaint (St. Croix Safari Tours; 800-524-2026; www.gotostcroix.com/safaritours/index.htm; sjtouss@hotmail.com) leads informative tours of the fragrant, 16-acre estate; he'll offer samples of local fruits like sweet lime and help you choose a fallen mango to snack on later.
