Built on the side of a cliff with criss crossing paths. Incredible variety of plants. At the bottom is the impressive cactus area and other themed areas.

This garden is really big and require some good physics as it is placed in a steep mountain side. Well worth it though, with thousands of different plants and trees. Bus 301 takes you almost to the gate. Free entrance and a good restaurant.

Wow.... Never knew this was here... Loved every minute walking around. Please note, the gardens are on a steep valley side which the pathes weave their way up and back down again so if you cannot walk on stoney pathways up steel hills then keep to the water gardens and cactus gardens, there is still plenty to see. Superb afternoon... More

Our visit here was on a pretty hot afternoon and that made it rather hard work, but we are glad that we persisted. The garden was established to conserve typical Canarian plants and it does that really well. It is quite a large garden and so unless you can be dropped off at the top entrance and picked up again...

Set inside a courtyard, This was a lovely place to eat and take in the culture. The pueblo canario offers folk singing and dancing every Sunday too.

The Museum Nestor is well worth a visit for a nominal charge. The weekly Canarian Dancing on a Sunday is popular and vivacious.

Nice garden to spent an hour when travelling from village to village at Gran Canaria island. And it;s free, so don't complaint if you find any rubbish dropped by you, my dear tourist. Visit the cactus area, if you are in. And climb to the volcano cave for a nice view to the whole garden.

An extensive botanical garden near Las Palmas and a rare green haven on this rather barren island. To explore the whole garden be prepared to walk 2-3kms and scale a rockface on the valley side (via steep paths not crampons). The cacti gardens are the best feature. Access is free as is parking. Signage could be improved as we managed... More

I visited there with my good friend. I saw and heard much about the history and plants of Canary Islands. There are so much to see that next time I'll spend more than one day there. When you visit there in the garden you need good shoes and you walk willingly. Don't forget to take camera with you! I never... More

We went there last Friday and to be honest it looks to me that the park keepers haven't been there in months. it's a mess no flowers broken foot paths and weeds everywhere . the gardens in my hotel were far nicer and better kept.
