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.

The tour was an amazing experience for me. I had a fun time with my family and met a few nice people along the way.

A bus from the centre will take you here. Only costs 1.65 euros. I can just say that it's beautiful here. So much to see. There are steep steps however that zig zag down the side of the mountain and they are a bit uneven and cobbled. It was not a problem for myself, but I did think that it... More

We took the bus there and walked down the hill paths. There are no handrails so with my small fear of hights made me look to my feet carefully when i was walking down. Down there was a big cacti arboretum. From down there did the buses go only on scooldays and with one member with a bad knee we... More

We had an amazing day at the Jardin Canario. Put on comfy shoes, there is much walking to do if you wish to see all of these wonderful plants. We started at the bottom, and then walked up the steep hillside. We had lunch in the beautiful restaurant at the top. The walk down was a little precarious for someone... More

We've made a couple of visits to these fantastic gardens, seven kilometres south-west of Las Palmas in the Tafira Alta district, and spent an enjoyable half day there each time wandering around its 27 acres of extensive paths. The garden was set up by Swede Erik Svensson in 1952 to bring together a collection of plants found on all of... More
