Impressive size of the mature trees as well as its collection of subtropical diversity all planted close and within a small area. Well worth the visit.

We spent a few hours walking around this beautifully kept garden just lovely and peaceful away from it all place but still in the city. 3 years ago we spent a year in South America and it was fun to see many plants from this continent in the gardens. Well worth a visit.

The Botanical Gardens are absolutely fantastic! There is calm just up the hill from the bustling centre of Puerto de la Cruz.The area is called La Paz & it really is peaceful. The entry fee is nominal (3 euros) compared to many attractions and other botanical gardens (Kew eat your heart out). I always find time to go and enjoy... More

Visited these gardens as they were a short walk from our hotel and good value with a €2 admission price. Lots of interesting plants. We were spoiled as our hotel gardens were fantastic and so we felt this garden to be a little unkempt in comparison. Don't be put off though. It is certainly worth visiting.

I think 3,- euros are a fair rate for a really nice botanical garden. It´s a great place to relax in the shadow and enjoy the silence.

If it was only for the amazing tree and the numerous blue/green lizzards roaming the gardens, you should visit this place. Very cheap entrance fee.
