2 Things you need to know about these gardens. 1.The carpark is on top of the hillside and the gardens are at the bottom of a maze of winding and back switching stone steps. There is a gate on the lower level that most people seemed to use but if you are driving you will have to park on the... More

A bit tricky to find, but find it we did! Fabulous site, and it really is enormous and spectacular. Each type of tree or plant is shown in a group, not as just one or two specimens. There are miles of walkways at various levels up the sides, but the main display is more or less on the level (slight... More

We never knew there were so many cactus varieties. We parked on the side of the road near the entrance to the bottom of the park . On entering there's a guide map on display - recommend going left to towards the nursery area and doubling back & going back & forth up to as high as you want to... More

I spent 5.5 hours in the garden walking all the many paths, eating lunch, looking at the various sections (cactus, pine trees, laurel trees, dragon trees, succulents, palms, bushes, ...). It is on a hillside, so there is some climbing involved. This is supposed to be the largest botanical garden in Spain. There is plenty of shade and the temperature... More

The grounds are huge and it takes forever to go from the start at the top to the foot of the mountain, (as most of the garden is in the valley) AND up again. We were there in Deember, which, even for Gran Canaria, is not the best time for flowers and plants.

A very lovely place to walk - we drove and walked around the flat side of the park and then drove round to the other side to go in the restaurant - it was a shame we could not walk it but we left it too late as the park closes at 6!

An amazing collection of the plants found in the Canary's - particularly the cacti, which I particularly love. To avoid the climb enter by the bottom gate to walk around and enjoy the peaceful, tranquil environment accompanied by lovely birdsong. If you then want to enjoy the view from the top and restaurant drive up to the top. You can... More

I have been to many botanic gardens and, as collections of plants go, the botanic gardens in Gran Canaria is very nice. As someone who likes to study good garden design, there's not much to look at here but that's not what the garden is supposed to be about. Essentially it is a living library of Canarian plants and, in... More
