I know we are paying to save the iguanas but I still thought $30 each for the park and the iguanas was expensive. I was not impressed with the gardens. I figured with the Caymans Tropical climate the gardens would be REALLY impressive and they were just okay. We went in the morning and it was already crazy hot! We... More

My friend and I love to photograph flowers, lizards and insects, and this is definitely the place to go for that!. Although we went in the summer, so not many of the orchids were in bloom, there were still lots of other gorgeous tropical plants/flowers to see. We saw lots of blue iguanas (only found in Grand Cayman), wandering around,... More

This was the one disappointment of our trip. The Iguana Sanctuary is was closed and didn't appear ready to reopen anytime soon. The Visitor's Center was being renovated and most of it was closed, along with the Gift Shop. There was very little in bloom throughout the park. And, of course, it's quite a ways from anything else. So, before... More

Even if you are not a flora enthusiast, you will enjoy strolling through these very beautiful gardens with a variety of trees, plants, and flowers. It is not to be missed while you are in GC, if for no other reason than to go visit and learn about the Blue Iguana conservation efforts, and to meet these great, big creatures!

Lots of plants, lizards & native flowers, also a lot of walking but we enjoyed it. The staff was friendly, the grounds were clean & they had a nice tiny gift shop.

Not much was in bloom, but the blue iguanas and green parrots made up the color scheme for the day. Also, unique gifts, reasonably priced in shop at end of self-guided tour.

Our last visit 4 years ago was a much needed change from the beach. So decided to visit again. As previous reviews had mentioned, it has got really run down, as if no gardening has been done ;0) its a shame because its a beautiful way to spend a couple of hours. Surprisingly, cool in the trees which can be... More

We did not take the special I quant our, but ran into at least 5 on our stroll through the gardens. A guide stopped while we were in the fruit gardens and showed us the cherries off one of the tree that the iguana liked to eat. He pulled some off and fed them to the iguana. The previously very...
