The extensive market area of Caribbean Gardens features more than 1,000 undercover stalls. You’ll find everything from fresh produce, electronics and fabrics, clothing to accessories of all kinds. In short, this huge market will have something you’d want to buy.

If you have kids, then bringing them to Caribbean Gardens is definitely a great choice. While you browse through the different stalls, kids can enjoy a train ride or play on the play equipment. The train takes guests throughout the large property on a custom built train track – passing around the beautiful Lake Caribbean. When the train ride is over, kids can enjoy a jungle river cruise. If that’s not enough, take your kids on a chairlift ride to enjoy the best panoramic views of the area.

  • Good morning am wanting to know if the children’s park still has the hippos and other creatures on the lake etc that used to be there when the park first opened. I would like to take my young grandsons there to see what their Dad had fun doing.

    • Hi Joan,

      Yes! Having done the Jungle Cruise ourselves fairly recently there were many animals still on display. The kids will love it!

      Enjoy your day at Caribbean Gardens!
