Easy to get to from where I live in Carolina. Admission & parking is free. We paid $5.00 per person to take a guided golf cart tour. It was worth it. Our tour guide was phenomenal. Her English was spot on, and she was very knowledgable about the flora & fauna. The park is a little confusing but I would... More

Have you ever wondered where you can find a particular and specific plant, medicinal or not? Then you need to visit "El Jardín Botánico, while you enjoy the rest of the island's great attractions.

Good place to enjoy nature. I learn a lot for gardering. You could walk all around, it has a nice shop.

The Jardin Botanico is a wonderful oasis in the busy metropolis of San Juan, a very welcome respite from all the hustle and bustle of the busy city and the traffic. It can be a little hard to find but worth the perseverance. When we arrived we made our first stop at the the very nice little gift shop and... More

A lovely, soothing green island in the metropolis of San Juan. We saw lots of birds and different plants, trees, and water features. We were given a fun guided tour by a young college student working there, and after the tour, she even gave us a ride to the metro station. How often are people that nice? That's one thing... More

Ironically, it is easy to grow stunning tropicals in Puerto Rico, and I DO realize the focus is on native plants, but this place is dull, and hot, and uninspired. Whoever runs it should be fired, pronto. Just visit any botanical garden in Forida, Texas, or California (see Balboa Park) and you will see why this place is so substandard.... More

Once we arrived at Jardin Botanico we found an information center/ gift shop and grabbed a map. The map didn't help us much but it did have some useful information. Between the map lacking street names and the gardens themselves not being marked clearly or at all it was a bit of a nightmare to navigate through. My advice would... More

Enjoyed walking around the greenery and seeing the sculptures and trees. Saw more wildlife there than we did in El Yunque! It was free and easy to access (you do have to follow the driving directions - it is not the kind of place you just happen by, and the roadside signs are a bit rough) It was a perfect... More
