Don't expect to be overwhelmed by loads of colourful flowers but instead marvel at the creeping roots and aerial roots of the giant Ficus trees and keep your camera ready for astounding reflections in the pools

Beautiful gardens, which are well maintained and contain lots of different variety of plant. There are little plaques which contain the plant name and its country of origin. My only criticism is that smoking is allowed in this beautiful area - I know that Spain is pretty lax with their smoking, but I think an area of such beauty should... More

Unbelievable area of peace within a very busy city. Excellent value. Able to go in and out in the same day with the one purchase

A good range of tropical and local plants, most impressive is the huge banyan tree with its many trunks. Don't expect Kew Gardens, it's not that large, but still well worth a visit for 3 Euros. There's also a smaller satellite garden in La Orotava which is free to visit.

Cheap to go in and a good place for a pleasant shady walk aroung the tropical planting. Not a lot of colour in November but this may change during the seasons.

Loved the trees, especially! This is a very well laid out garden with plenty of labels on the plants, in Latin and Spanish. There were not too many plants in flower when we were there but the trees from all over the world are well worth seeing. Lovely shade as we ambled around and plenty of seats to rest the... More

Only 3 Euros to get in, it wasn't huge or sophisticated but it was calming and generally a nice place, access was good for a types of entrants, able or otherwise and it's quite flat inside apart from the odd tree root coming out of the ground. If you're quiet your bound to see plenty of lizards running for their... More
