Havana has many green spaces and treed avenues outside of the old city but all are part of the fabric of normal city activity. Quinta de los Molinos, situated on Avenida Salvador Allende and within a short walk north-east of the Plaza de la Revolución, is a refreshing respite from the surrounding ado. For $5.00 CUCs, one can immerse themselves in a number of themed gardens, stroll in a tranquil environment, enjoy the company of butterflies in their pretty pavilion, or watch a variety of resident birds, some endemic to Cuba. Some areas of the park are a work in progress while others hold temporary exhibits. Signage and park employees can provide identification. Note that the park is built on the former site of tobacco mills, later developed into the estate of General Maximo Gomez although evidence of either can’t be seen. It’s easy to spend a few relaxed hours here so bring refreshment, as nothing is available close by.

I came for the 10 am tour and my guide was well versed in Cuban Natural History. The garden features a wide range of trees endemic to Cuba and plants from all over the world. They also have a number of animals and breeding program for endangered Cuban snails and for butterflies. The garden offers programs for special needs kids and supplies some food to a local school. The butterfly house can only be visited with a guide.

This botanic garden shows quite a lot of the endemic plants on the Island. We got some good explanations from the guide, pointed us to flowering trees, etc. was definitely worth to spend our time here.

Initially we had a few translation problems gaining access .. garden opens at 1000, however, I think staff wanted to close early! Like most things in Cuba, it is run-down.. the pathways, fishpond, park seats, buildings ... however, there were several Cannonball Trees (in flower) and a 400yo Ceiba tree. Watch hummingbirds here...
