Lovely and lots of iguanas

We were too late for the iguana enclosure tour (held only once daily - 11 a.m.), but still saw plenty of the free blue iguanas on our self-guided stroll. They were calm enough to... read more

We were too late for the iguana enclosure tour (held only once daily - 11 a.m.), but still saw plenty of the free blue iguanas on our self-guided stroll. They were calm enough to pose for several pictures, so the kids had fun, while the adults got to enjoy the beautiful plantings - the palm varieties alone were fascinating! Enough... More

Extremely disappointing and not worth the money or effort getting there . You can't see the blue Iguanas behind a stupid and irritating fence and you won't see one anywhere else there but they know that when you have paid . The 11am Iguana tour was off and frequently is not available. We have been twice and the it was... More

We were here for a week and saved this park for our last day. Due to the season the orchids weren't bloomimg. Due to lack of rain most things looked dead. Sadly, the iguanas are behind a tall wooden fence with about an inch crack. Stupid. They give a tour of the iguanas for an extra 20 but only at... More

Hal, our tour guide was great. A true Caymanian, he knows so much about the plants and culture of the island. Enjoyed his humor and had alot of laughs with him. Place was nice, but wish more of the flowers were in bloom. It was warm, so make sure you bring something to drink. Saw the blue iguanas, too. Weird!!

We took a nice morning stroll through the Botanic Park last week. The season didn't lend itself well at all to the orchid walk, but that is simply a function of the season. Other parts of the park were great, and we enjoyed coming across one of the famous blue iguanas. A bit pricey, but what isn't in the Caymans?

Getting to it involves a 35 minute bus ride if you do not have a car. This is easy to do by going to the main local bus center downtown. They will call a bus to come bring you back once you are done. Plan a good hour for a leisurely stroll along the paths. The orchid loop has specific... More

Nice botanical gardens with grounds to walk on. Orchid garden must be beautiful when in bloom (not in March). Pleasant walking paths with several pond areas. Blue iguana can be spotted as well as green parrots, small herons and little blue lizards. We also spotted a silver toad nestled in a tree. Lovely break from the water. Take water bottles... More

A very worthwhile half day excursion. Includes the Cayman Islands Blue Iguana sanctuary project. We saw 2 very large Iguanas, one right in the driveway leading to the parking lot! Plenty of interesting flowers, plants, cacti, birds, etc. A typical Cayman house was also moved onto the property from elsewhere on the island as a mini museum. Nice gift shop.

How much you like this venue will depend on where you live and what you've seen in the past that was described as a "Botanic Park". If you're from the northern latitudes and haven't been to places like the Singapore Botanic Gardens, you'll be impressed. If you live in a tropical place already and have visited some of the world's... More
