A fairly small park and anyone expecting sensational flowers on display could be a bit disappointed but I found this place genuinely pleasant and relaxing. We spent about an hour there - including a stop at the park café - and had a very good time.

Tucked away but delightful not just for the flowers but the history and getting a sense of the history of why visitor came all this way.

Small garden with attractive plantings - the orchids are on the path on the left-hand side. 10 mins walk downhill from the Botanic Gardens and another 10 mins back to the centre of town. So easy to see both in half a day.

An extremely relaxing place that I would strongly recommend visiting. They include an idyllic little cafe tucked away at the back of the gardens, which I was pleased to discover serves cold beer and homemade cakes.

A place to sit in peace and quiet amongst lovely flora. You wouldn't believe you were in such a busy area. There is also a small café to enjoy refreshments

When laid out in the 18th century this place must have been really isolated. Now, you need to seek it out in Puerto's suburbia. Well worth doing and knocks spots off the Botanic Gardens.

This green garden full of flowers already visited by Von Humboldt and Agatha Christi in the past is certainly worth a visit. In the back of the garden you find a small restaurant with terrace where you can drink a good cup of tea in a charming surrounding.

The garden is high above the sea front, but a taxi from Tenerife Playa only cost just over 3 euros, and the walk back is easy. There are some spectacular plants here, with gorgeous strong colours, and a lovely sense of peace. Glad we did not miss it.
