We saw 8-10 endemic Cayman parrots and several other cool local birds,some at the front entrance. Nice walking paths. Unfortunately, the blue iguanas were locked away from the dogs breaking in until a fence can be built. Wear bug repellent clothes and hat and use mosquito spray. Nice gift shop.

We visit every trip. Don't miss it. Sadly the Iguanas have been reduced by local dogs. We used to see dozens of them. Pleas go so donations help keep improvements going.

Iguanas and plants, very cool. The Iguana sanctuary program is in the gardens also, extra but worth it. Blue Iguanas are rare and native, the green ones were introduced.

I just got back from a trip to Cayman with my husband and another couple and we went to the gardens. It was a nice trip with pretty gardens, but I wish we hadn't missed the orchids and the blue iguanas. (The orchids were out of season and the iguanas were closed off for breeding)

We spent a couple hours strolling through the gardens looking at the plants and watching for some wildlife. We saw a bunch of iguanas and some parrots. There were no blooms in the orchid garden (wrong time of year) but enjoyed looking at the various palms and succulents. It was a very nice way to spend a couple of hours... More

The iguana pen is interesting and it's a very pleasant 1 mile hike through the gardens. It's best to complete this attraction before 11:00 AM , the interior of the island in the summer is notably warmer. Bring bug spray!

We have been to the Queen Elizabeth II Botanic park several times and always enjoy going. It has a blue iguana sanctuary within the garden that you may visit with a naturalist guide for an additional fee. You will see all different ages within the sanctuary and there is a very good chance to see larger adult blue iguanas on... More

We did this in the summer, probably a bad move, so this review isn't going to be positive. The person who greeted us at the building entrance was congenial, but aside from pointing to where the path started, we were on our own here. It was a 90 degree day even though we go there when the park arrived. The... More

Great sights and very serene. Interesting to learn about trees and plants native to Cayman. The foilage and iron shore co-exist beautifully.
