Very nice. Worth the $1 admission

The gradens were very nice. They have walking trails that are clearly defined and easy to follow. There is a playground area for elementary age children and a restaurant.

I visited the La Laguna Botanic Garden on a Sunday afternoon when there were a lot of families visiting the garden, getting shady relief from the hot sun and urban concrete. The kids--as all kids around the world-- were ecstatic with the little waterfalls, the bridges, the streams, the mosses, the frogs, and the sodas at the cafe at the... More

This botanical garden was recommended to my boyfriend and me by our hotel (Arbol de Fuego- look them up!) and was only a short walk away- maybe 15 or 20 min. We visited the garden on our last afternoon in El Salvador and it was such a nice way to end an amazing trip. We walked in the garden and... More

Cons - There are no local buses or taxis that go by this place on a regular. Recommend taking a taxi and having a taxi ready to pick you up as you leave. You can also ask the ticket person to call you a taxi. Pros - Beautiful garden Great vibe Nice place to relax

It's well worth the journey to have a quiet reprieve from the chaos of the city. Be sure to take the bus there. Walking from Zona Rosa is long and I had to stop like 15 times for directions! The gardens are beautiful and lush and have delightful ponds around. The iguanas are gigantic!!!

The Jardin Botanico La Laguna is beautifully landscaped and well planned. It is very peaceful, a bit cooler than the rest of the city, and it is a refuge from the bustle and pressures of San Salvador. There is a large variety of plant species from papyrus to giant bamboo to native indigo. Some are grouped in zones, or around... More

Lots of lush and greenery, but I imagined more flowers. But for the price of admission it's a nice place to visit and bring children. The play area makes for nice picnics and feel free to bring a blanket and good book to spend an afternoon there. My friends and I went later on to buy plants and they had... More

I was surprised at how good this botanical garden was. It was well maintained and clean. There was a kiosk and clean bathrooms. The paths were extensive and a map was given at the entrance. There are turtles and iguanas wandering around. The range of flora is impressive and the staff courteous and welcoming as almost everyone in this beautiful... More

The children loved watching the many turtles in the lake, and there was a family of enormous iguanas that kept us fascinated for a while. The garden centre at the opposite end to the car park is incredibly cheap and extensive. The play area near the entrance was shady and a good place for a picnic, even if half the... More
