Very basic and more suitable for children then adults. Many school kids were there the day we went. Chance to get out of the sun for an hour or so.

First thing - Wear bug spray and bring your own water - there is none for sale. Also make sure you arrange to be picked up with your driver before you leave your taxi. The paths are easy to follow and paved; there are free restrooms, and there is plenty of shade. If you have never had a chance to... More

The gardens run along the Malecon are positioned perfectly to provide shade and places to sit and just reflect on the nice weather. Only drawback is the noise and exhaust fumes from the parallel street. The display of flowers and plants is colorful and varied as anything we have ever seen. They are well tended by their gardeners. Expired blooms... More

This lovely area runs parallel to the Malecon. A beautiful walk in the early morning or late afternoon. Landscaping is just perfection with an incredible array of trees, plants and flowers. Birds abound for those who appreciate our feathered friends.

Our tour guide took us to the Botanical Gardens. It offers a great introduction to the plants and animals found in Ecuador. Lots of interesting plants. We saw some unusual animals including a harpy eagle, tapir, sloth, raccoons and parrots. There is also an area where guides were showing how the workers lived compared to the owners of the farm....

If you like tropical plants and flowers, you would enjoy this garden as much as we do. We had a leisure day in the city and decide to check out this garden and totally enjoyed the experience.

This was one of the highlights of the trip. If you only have a short time, make sure you stop in. Early morning was the beys time, not many people around. Making it like your own private garden. AWSOME.
