Beautiful garden

Though most of Puerto Rico is pretty much a lush garden, this park is worth the few dollars you'll pay for a guided tour to spot some of the beautiful flowers, trees and foliage.

Like most things in San Juan it could use a little TLC but overall lovely nature experience with wonderful old trees and plantings.

We get entusiastic to visit the Jardin Botanico of Puerto Rico for a long time and we did it today. This Botanical Garden was created to preserve the flora and fauna of the island. It is a living laboratory open to the public and we enjoy all the information given to us. One of the most beautiful areas if you... More

I hope funding increases for this botanical garden. The idea is good, but the layout is a little confusing, the map was unclear, and the trails were poorly maintained. Honestly, not worth the trip unless you really like botanical gardens.

A very nice green area to walk with paths, hills, ponds. It has a lot of shade so we enjoy it since the sun is so hot here. Usually not many people. You can bring a picnic lunch.

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.
