This botanical garden provides pathways shaded by beautiful trees. A place where you can walk and admire the vegetation at no cost. It is a peaceful place to get away from the hustle and bustle of the big city of San Juan.

New Jardin Botanico in Caguas (4 Replies)
They just opened a new Botanical Garden in Caguas. It is very nice though not totally complete and still young plantings. It is on the ruins of a sugar plantation.. Sculptures, flowers, palms, butterflies. It is free admission for the next 10 days I think. It will be closed Good Thursday and Good Friday, open Easter Sat and Sun.

Also Looking for private tour guide in Cienfuegos (60 Replies)
I will be in Cienfuegos in March for the day and am looking for a tour guide or to hire a taxi for the day. I have reached out to Fernando as per the prior topic. Does anyone have any other contacts? The Jardin Botanico Soledad is a definite stop for us. Also approximately how much would it cost to for 2 people to tour/taxi for about 6 hours? Excited and thankful for any insight.
