Bring insect repellant and camera

Beautiful gardens. You will need 1 to 2 hours to visit and bring your camera and insect repellant as you will get bit if not.

We went here as part of an excursion to the north of the island. We were very rushed through the gardens by our guide (NOT one of the park guides, but one from the tour company) and we think we only saw about 1/4 of it. The plants and trees were excellent even though it was winter and it was... More

We were told by the reception staff at our hotel, who were actually quite helpful and helped us plan our entire trip that this was a wonderful place and a must see especially for couples. On arriving at the"gardens" i was expecting to see an explosion of colours and flowers that i hadn't seen before , what i was greeted... More

The old Botanic Garden has not changed ever, it seems. Trees has been left to grow and so they have. We had a 3 year old boy along and the giant Tortoises they have was the top attraction for him. What they were doing in a botanic garden, I don't know and the enclosure they were in, was not really... More

Wonderful and interesting foliage is definitely worth paying for a guide as there are so many unusual plants and we had a very funny enjoyable guide.

A good outing if you wanted a quiet day with a book to read and a outdoor environment. Not a large park, nor very special in terms of plant species either. Few visitors, large walkways. Tortoises and deer pens at one corner of the park, which will keep the kids entertained for a bit. No "official" parking near the entrance... More

Never one to pay for things that we don't think we need, on this occasion we decided to pay one of the park guides and it was definitely worth it. The things we would have missed had we just ambled around on our own. Absolutely worth paying a guide!!

The most spectacular plant was the giant water lily pads- Huge!!! I've seen similar at Kew Gardens but these were enormous.There are a nice variety of... More
