“A fascinating collection, well worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

Rather tucked way on the main road north out of Puerto de la Cruz, this was a really exciting place to visit. It is absolutely packed with an enormous variety of trees and other plants from all over the world. The several paths allow access to most of the exhibits that each have a label identifying them. We wandered around for a couple of hours captured by the huge diversity. We will certainly revisit on our return to Puerto de la Cruz.

“Pleasent surroundings”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

€3 entrance. Nice if you have an hour to kill. Mainly big trees and shrubs and a few flowers. Nice pond right at the back.

“Very poor”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

The Botanical Gardens were very poor and maybe it is because we have such excellent Botanical Gardens in Ireland and the UK that were were so disappointed. If it a dull day it could waste a couple of hours,not expensive €3, but not worth a visit either. The outside is well landscaped but the gardens were poor.

This is a very interesting garden with some very unusual tropical plants. Well worth a visit if you are interested in gardens or would like to learn more about the wonderful flora that can be grown is this area.

“Good for a quick visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

We went here when there was a spot of rain to kill some time. It cost just three Euros and you can spend as long as you like in there. Some of the plants and trees in there are huge and we found ourselves taking pictures of ourselves next to the giant leaves. Well worth a visit and walking distance from La Paz hotel.
