We go to power walk on weekends

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.

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.

Carmen gave us a wonderful guided tour of the grounds. She was GREAT! The tour was GREAT! We caught a cab at the ship's dock... More

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.

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
