It was something we looked forward to as a family, however, our timing was off. Nothing was blooming which is not their fault. With that being said, at the same time the grounds' were not in good repair and the Blue Iguana enclosure is only accessible once a day (11:00AM?) and with limited space. We missed it, however, we did... More

Worth it just to see the blue iguanas. More of an adult thing to do unless your kids are into gardens. We saw one blue iguana and the teens saw 2.

Tucked away on Frank Sound Road is a treasure of Cayman botanical and wild life rarities. There is a wonderful collection of trees, shrubs, flowers and animals that are native to this Island. The history of how the near extinct Cayman Blue Iguana was regenerated by the biologists after being taken over by green, non-Caymanian imigrants largely believed to be... More

We rented a car and this is the first place we drove to. It was not far from our resort. Driving on the left side of the road was a rush and a little nerve racking. But we got the hang of it in no time. The park was not hard to find if you follow the signs. Beautiful plants,... More

Flowers abound, as do birds, butterflies, and other wildlife. It is well worth the price of admission. Seversal different lengths of walking trails make it nice for anyone. Unfortunately, the iguana exhibit was closed the day we were there, but we got up close and personal with one along the loop trail.

We wanted explore the island so we stopped by the gardens which is on the other side of the island from 7 mile beach. We spotted a few blue iguanas but otherwise, the vegetation was wilted and sad. I don't think we will be back.

We visited in the morning to try and avoid the heat. The blooms were absolutely beautiful, and the variety of plants amazing. My favorite was the gazebo overlooking the ponds. We sat and relaxed for a while in the shade. Definitely a must-do if you visit Grand Cayman. The cost is minimal and the benefit priceless.

I haven't been to a lot of botanical gardens, but the one in Cayman is certainly a great place to visit. It is well laid out with different areas that you can visit. From orchids to palm trees and even Cayman cultural sites, there is something for everybody. It is nice to take friends and family here when they visit... More
