This fantastic garden can be easily reached by the 300 bus from Santa Cruz or los llanos la palma. Get the 300 to Colegio Tendin A, a school about 30 minutes from Santa Cruz or 15 minutes from los Llanos, check with the timetable on the net. From the colegio tendin A go down the hill about 100 meters approx turn right, (sign to Palmex on the wall where you turn) walk about 100 meters uphill take the first left, (sight to Palmex on the wall). Walk uphill to gate on the right. The garden is free but you can donate what you want to the upkeep. We donated €20 for the 2 of us €10 each because it is such a special garden, well loved with more cactus, aloe, succulents, lithops that I have ever seen. All beautifully kept. We spent about 1.5 hours but did not feel we could appreciate what we saw. There must be thousands of different species and from what the owners told us they are cross breeding. So more marvels to see in the future. We will be back.

Worth popping down here. Really enjoyable and relaxing. Bit confusing knowing what to put in the donations pouch though! Maybe they should just charge an entry fee.

We saw this place in a Twenty year old book. But after all the years the place is sill going strong: now under Swiss ownership. The place has fantastic species among the also cactuses from Africa.

We tried to find this place on our previous trips to La Palma but managed it this time. It was well worth the wait. It is obviously a labour of love and it shows. huge and impressive cacti are the stars but the overall walk around the garden is also a pleasure.

This cacti garden is a private gem whose owners, passionate about succulents, are very helpful, friendly, and full of information. Their collection of agave and cacti is wide ranging and beautifully tended. One could roam through the garden for hours, soaking in the beauty and serenity. There is no entrance fee, but a nice donation is appreciated and helps cover the expenses. Highly recommended!
