We spent about three memorable hours at the Botanical garden. The trails are well marked, maintained and easy for a comfortable hike through a variety of habitats. They had lots of collections of plants. Everything was well labeled easy to understand. We loved the apiary and the view from the towers and swinging bridge and just being in a different landscape. It was off the road enough that you don't hear the highway traffic. We saw lots of lovely old iguanas, some nice butterflies and had a few good bird sightings.
It's an easy 20 minute walk along the east side of the highway from the big intersection. Just take the collectivo and walk from the Colonia. We took a taxi there but walked back to the Colonia after our visit (taking the taxi was not necessary). Not one mosquito for our visit.
It's nice to support local environmental initiatives.
