It's a short walk through the hammocks to the site, but in that short time you will be eaten alive by all the mosquitoes if you don't come prepared. It's a nice little spot for a picnic but there's really not much to see. The waterfront area is pretty small. It's only a $2 donation to get in and a few more for a tour. It's right in downtown Coconut Grove, so a good spot to get away for a short time.
