Pleasant gardens

It is small, and has not the biggest diversity of plants. But is it VERY nice, and has a good atmosphere. It is within walking distance from the old city.

Relatively small botanical gardens which nevertheless have a variety of plants and trees. There are some spectacular specimens, including a ficus which will leave kids and adults going wow. On our visit there was a cold wind, but it was pleasantly sheltered in the garden. The only slight drawback is that there is no catering facility inside, but there are... More

While in Puerto de la Cruz this place is worth a visit, as there are some interesting trees and plants to be seen in there. There is a charge of 3 euros each to go in.

The gardens are a pleasant escape from the heat of the day! They are beautifully maintained. For 3 euros, you can spend an hour or so lost in thought with gardens that appeal to all the senses.

The entrance fee is small, although even cheaper for locals (which is a bugbear for me!). We came late morning just before the sun was at its fiercest and it was welcoming to walk amongst the shady trees. There is a wide selection of exotic palms & other plants, all well maintained. We spent over an hour just wandering through... More

Tickets are cheap and the garden beautiful. No matter if you are a flower lover or just want a little shadow on a sunny day - or hide from the rain on a wet day - it's worth a visit.

Whilst not covering a large area these gardens were very interesting. Only 3 euros entry fee. We found that you could see the most by walking up one aisle and down the next till you had covered the whole gardens.

The botanical gardens was a little dissipointing considering it's the only one in puerto del la cruise. It really looks like it needed a good weeding & a little more care. Some of the plants seemed on there last legs, thankfully it's only a few €uro's to go in.
