a number of very interesting plants/trees - worth a 2hr visit

If you're a fan, I can imagine you spending way more than two hours in there, it took us about 1.5 though. A few very interesting specimens, especially the tree in the middle... read more

It's been over forty years since I first visited this lovely peaceful botanic garden (Postioned high above ground level) but I'm drawn back again & again to this peacful spot. Just inside the entrance the gardeners have introduced some of those 'clingy/feathery/mossy/ type fungus to one of the large trees, which does not look very realistic...sorry! But I do believe...

A delightful little treasure. A modestly sized, modestly priced,but beautifully kept little place. The unique tropical/subtropical nature of flora in Tenerife makes this fascinating for us peeps from colder climes.. We stopped there and then had a nice cold beer in one of the lovely little bars just up the road. All were happy.

Don't expect Kew Gardens! This is a very old botanical garden, Tall ship botanists, who had collected tropical and exotic plants on voyage, brought seeds and plants here to acclimatise them ready for being taken back to a more temperate climate. Plants and trees from many parts of the World, particularly the Americas and Asia, display colourful blooms, strange tree... More

Well worth a visit if you are on Puerto and are interested in gardens. They have the most incredible examples of rain forest type trees and plants, the centrepiece tree (forgotten its name) is enormous and has the most incredible root system, actually growing down from the branches like pillars. Admission is very good value too €3 for both of... More

For only 3 Euro each it's a great way to spend an hour. Lots of unusual and rare plants living outdoors rather than in a greenhouse. Overall a very interesting and enjoyable experience. Parking was easy when we were there but I guess it could be difficult in more popular months. Do stroll downhill afterwards and have lunch or a... More

A steep walk to the west of Puerto de la Cruz takes you to The Botanical gardens, lots of little shops and views to stop and admire on the way, its only 3 euros entrance, a lovely place to eat a little packed lunch and relax and enjoy the gardens

When ever I visit a city with a Botanical Garden I visit - I simply love those places. This garden is small and kind of boring. My visit was in January could be the reason for the boring looks. There are a few "funky" looking trees but what else is there, is what you can see elsewhere on the island... More

This was one of our first stops on our recent trip to Tenerife. I like gardens and this was is very thoughtfully laid out. The range of plants is large and some of the specimens are very old. We spent a good couple of hours here and thought it worth the entrance fee.

Very beautiful but was tiny - don't expect to spend more than an hour or so there - so may not be worth the entrance fee.
