The park was very nice and beautiful! The separate iguana tour was fun and a good chance to learning about the blue iguanas. However personally it was too hot and did not entirely interest me.

I made a relatively short stop here with my 9 year old son who desperately wanted to see blue iguanas. It was just too hot for us to stay more than a couple of hours, but it would be possible to bring a picnic and make a full day of it. We didn't pay for the very expensive iguana tour... More

We always go to the garden when we are on Cayman. In April, the flowers in the color garden were just beautiful. The new cactus garden was complete and lots of beautiful plants in there. The water lillys were beautiful as always.

You probably know if you are a botanical garden person or not. If you are, you're going to enjoy this one. For us, the fun was seeing the blue iguanas, which were not hard to find; we saw at least half a dozen, not including the ones in cages. There is also a wide variety of various colorful plants, none... More

This well-done, peaceful, and beautiful park is well outside of George Town but is easily accessed via the number 8 bus-van which leaves at the small 'depot' near the library. I saw one of the rare blue iguanas in the wild; however, there is no guarantee unless one pays extra to visit the research facility there. Strolling through the various... More

The Queen Elizabeth II Botanic Park is one of the best sites on Grand Cayman. It was about a 45 minute drive from Seven Mile Beach area but the roads are good and the Garden is easy to find. We opted for the combined ticket ($30) to see the gardens and the Iguana Habitat. While this fee is rather high... More

My husband, our 2 year old daughter, and I visited the Queen Elizabeth II Botanic Park on our recent visit to Grand Cayman. We were staying on the north side of the island and not far from the park. It's $10 admission for adults. Our daughter was free. For $30 you could go on a Blue Iguana tour and I... More

One of the highlights of our week on Grand Cayman! I had hiked throughout the week without knowing much about the trees, plants and lizard species I was seeing. The Botanical Park gave me answers to many of the questions I had and I was delighted to see many of the East End Cayman plant species near the beach all... More

Highlight of our trip to the Cayman Islands. For a $10 admission fee, you have access to a natural forest, tropical flower garden, tropical fruit orchard, desert habitat, and marshland. Plan to visit in the late afternoon, when animals tend to be out. If you bring children, make sure they are well behaved and don't chase the animals. This is... More
