A very nice green area to walk with paths, hills, ponds. It has a lot of shade so we enjoy it since the sun is so hot here. Usually not many people. You can bring a picnic lunch.

Ironically, it is easy to grow stunning tropicals in Puerto Rico, and I DO realize the focus is on native plants, but this place is dull, and hot, and uninspired. Whoever runs it should be fired, pronto. Just visit any botanical garden in Forida, Texas,...More

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 (56 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.
