I spent 5 amazing hours at the Princeville Botanical Gardens, a magical place where the owners carved out a mountain and created a wonderland. It looks like a rain forest with a canopy and all the dense vegetation and foliage one would expect in a place like that. I have been to many botanical gardens, but nothing like this one.
Part of the tour included tasting the exotic tropical fruits and their home made chocolate from their cacao plants. I had never heard of most of the fruit I tried and wouldn’t have normally put the odd assortment in my mouth as some of it looked VERY strange, but I am not a toddler to turn my nose up at something I will probably never get to try again, and I was very pleasantly surprised with the wonderful unique flavors. If you are ever in Kauai and you like gardens this is the one to go to…but only with reservations and a hefty entry fee!

So many amazing exotic flowers!
The myriad of color almost hurt my eyes
