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

If you arrive by the 301 bus as I did......you really do need to be a mountain goat to get to the best bits of the garden . I had a coffee in the lovely restaurant and looked at the wonderful view. Then realised the actual garden is way down ,very uneven rocky steps with no hand rails. Very pleased... More

There are two entrances to the Botanical Gardens though only one if you are relying on the local buses (route 301, 302 or 303) - they drop you about 250 m from the entrance to the top of the gardens which allows you to have a fabulous view over the whole area before you start the winding (and stepped) descent...

It's great if you're into gardening. We went on a half day tour run by BRUNO, all the hotels know him. Highly recommended. There's a lot more to it than just the botanic garden, wine tasting for instance.

This botanical garden was quite a sweetie. Parking was free, there was no entrance fee either. It was pleasant to walk around and see all the plants and trees typical in the Canaries. Glad I went but wouldn't go again.

We took bus 301 from the San Telmo station in Las Palmas and it dropped us off at the top of a hillside overlooking the garden. There is a rather nice restaurant there with stunning views over the garden below. We had a delicious roasted salad for lunch. The garden itself is extensive and takes a while to explore. There...

Often it can be windy in northern Gran Canaria so here you can escape the worst effects and at the same time enjoy a most interesting creation. Allow about three hours to see it all and take in the botanical highlights of these islands.
