The garden was founded in 1788 and has a rubber tree planted about then as well as 4000 (at least) other plants and trees from various continents. It is a lovely place to visit and we saw feral parrots there which was a thrill. There is no cafe but there are hostelries opposite the entrance. This is one of my... More

After many visits to tenerife this was our first visit to the gardens, they were a lot smaller than we had envisaged, but we very much enjoyed our visit , and it was an oasis of calm within this busy area of the island. We found the gardens very easily and were able to park just outside, and at 3... More

beautiful gardens with plants and trees growing without being encased in glass domed arenas. Peaceful and relaxing time away from the hustle and bustle of a standard rush around holiday trying to do so many things.

After getting lost several times we finally managed to find the Jardin Botanico and it was beautiful. Very tranquil with long gravel paths and tropical plants from all over the world. Plenty of benches to sit and soak it all up. I had read a review before going which said it was boring and there was no colour. We went... More

We enjoyed a long mornings walking round the gardens identifying plants and taking hundreds of photo's. It's a nice calm, educational trip if you enjoy gardening and plants.

Compared with Kew or Edinburgh, it is tiny and relatively insignificant, but that's part of the pleasure. You can explore almost every nook and cranny in half a day. Superb banyans, enormous palms and pines, strelitzias everywhere. I'm more of a tree person so I love this place, with plenty of shade to keep it cool. You can park for... More

One can walk to the gardens and very reasonable admission fee.The sub tropical species are superb and the layout classical.Also of interest is the bird life and the amusing parrots who will enjoy an exchange of calls with you.A fascinating and lovely place

If you are visiting Puerto de La Cruz then you should fit in a trip to the Botanical Gardens. There is a very small cost to get in but there is a lot to see. It is wheelchair friendly too.

Each plant had a plaque so you could learn about it and a very beautiful peaceful place to visit. The gardens are behind the Town Hall
