What a serene place. We loved all the unusual plants. Loved sitting amongst the greenery and listening to the birds.

I visited the Jardin Botanico with my adult son. It is wonderfully green and lush with an abundance of 'exotic' trees and shrubs. It would be a paradise for a student of arboriculture, and indeed I saw some groups of young people being lectured by their leaders as we passed along our way. I think that perhaps September is too... More

Visited this by walking from Puerto de la Cruz. Not recomended for the faint hearted as this is uphill all the way and took the best of 3/4 hour. I enjoyed the plants & trees although most had already flowered and were now seeded. It only cost 3 euros per person and was worth the cost. It was a semi... More

The gardens are within 300 yards of the Hotel (Riu Garoe) and we walked in about ten minutes. We went in October so many of the flowers were over. But it was a pleasant walk round, took us about an hour and a half and cost 3 euros each.

We had very mixed feelings about La Orotava Acclimatisation Gardens. On the one hand we thought we should be impressed by the historical significance of the collection which began in the 1780s and the unusual collection of tropical plants because of their size, age, origin or rarity but we did find it visually dull, particularly colourless and generally uninspiring.
