Its a very tranquil area lots of greenery. You must have a car to get there. You can do your own picnic, no cooking there. Its near the train station (Cupey) but far to walk from there to the Jardin Botanico.

A great place to relax with family and friends. Walk down trails that are clearly marked. You can also go be the store that's open until 5:00pm. Free admission.

The best place to get away from the city, while in the city. Just a beautiful, relaxing place. You won't find many things to do unless their is a special event. But is great for a simple walk.

Highly recommend to avoid this place! I love botanical garden and I was exited to get there. Sadly the charming pictures regarding that Garden are not up to date. I am sure this was a lovely garden a few years ago, but because of the economic crisis this is totally abandoned: Nobody take care of it. In addition, this is... More

This was my husband's pick, and we were a little disappointed. There weren't signs identifying the plants. It was nice, however to walk around and just enjoy being away from the city.

Walked the trails and then visited the educational/souvenir center. You can see beautiful greenery, very peculiar birds up-close, hear nature, and enjoy the very friendly staff. PR needs more of this.

There were many trees, many different varieties of palm trees, coral hibiscus bushes, vibrant bromeliads, pink and red ginger plants, a few ponds, fountains, metal and stone sculptures. We took...

Taking the map from the information center I walked the roads and trails, streams and ponds and saw more lizards than birds or flowering plants. In addition, not much of the vegetation was labeled. It appeared that the attraction was set up for people to stay in their cars as the labeled vegetation seemed to be next to the roads.... More
