For a small island the botanical gardens were beyond my expectations with some exceptional and spectacular scenery and views. Just wish I'd packed an picnic and spent the entire day. A must see when visiting Cayman.

If you've got green fingers and love to smell the flowers, this is a magnificent park that will have planning on how to transform your own garden into a tropical paradise. Sadly, I don't have green fingers, but my wife does. She totally loved the place. And despite the fact that I'm better at weeding than planting, I could see... More

My wife loves going here. She brings me here every year. The walk is great, and I enjoy looking out for the huge blue iguanas! This is about a 40 min drive From Georgetown, but makes for a relaxing day, we always grab some road side jerked chicken on the way back.

Nice place with some good birds but if you want to see the orchids do some research as to when they bloom. We went in July and all the orchids were withered. There were many other flowers that were beautiful. Don't miss the Rainbow Euchalyptus tree in front of the office!!!

First off, if you want to see the Blue Iguana, be sure to book a tour of the breeding facility. It was closed the day we were there, so we were only able to see them by peeking through the slats in the fence surrounding the facility; we didn't see any in the park itself. That said, the park was... More

We paid extra to tour the blue iguanas and I'm glad we did! Our tour guide was very informative and showed us so many beautiful blue iguana ranging in size. We did see a blue iguana while touring the park and another in the parking lot. But if you really want to see the blue iguanas I recommend paying extra... More

This is an impressive park with wonderful diverse and huge gardens that range from a bridge walk through an orchid forest to a lake with iguanas lounging on overhanging branches. Take a bottle of water and a hat and wander through the lushness and color. It takes about an hour and you will be amazed and grateful that this park... More

When we went, the blue iguana preserve was closed, but I managed to see 2 hanging around. Not super pretty, but could have been that it was summer and not a lot blooming. You very well may NOT see a blue iguana, but I was happy I had a chance to see one.

Staying on East End, this was a no-brainier we were looking forward to. We had a lovely time, especially after we diverted to get away from an annoying and constantly yammering family group with ennui-filled teens. The gardens are lush and beautiful, and the trails are easy. Despite the lack of orchid blooms (wrong season, I guess), we had a... More
