The place to go....
Apr 2021 • Friends
The perfect place to go to totally relax.
Well looked after, great variety.
Specialized gardens that are beautifully tended.
Walk the woodland trails.....(easy to walk) and spot birds, butterflies, and if you are lucky as I was you will see a Cayman Rabbit(Agoutis) and even Blue Iguanas strolling around.
The Iguana habitat is worth a visit while at the gardens....
All in all the place is an oasis of natural calm and not to be missed.

Queen Elisabeth II Botanic Park

A big park which lies in the eastern part of Grand Cayman, so plan at least a couple of hours here! It takes about 45 min. to go by car from Georgetown, tickets can be bought at ticket office in the entrance building, you will also get a map of the park. Here is the only place where the blue iguanas native to the Cayman can be seen in the wild, the species is endangered now. As well a whole lot of different flora, birds and butterflies, an orchid park and a typical Cayman house are presented.
In the botanical part of the park there are many places to sit and rest, so a day or half a day here is a good idea for leisure type travellers or nature photographers. Try not to hurry through it. The iguanas roam free around the park, the colorful parrots fly above, and sun shines. Best place to be in the nature surroundings at the Grand Cayman.
By the entrance there is a shop with souvenirs and refreshments and WC, admission rates are 8 CI dollar, and no pets are allowed in the Park.

Check out the Blue Iguanas
Feb 2020
Great break from the beach for a day if you need one. The blue iguanas are well worth the additional price and goes to helping save this endangered species only native to GC.

Go if you have available time and nothing better to visit.
Feb 2020 • Couples
Just go if you will spend long time in the island. We were in a cruise and it doesn’t worth to spend so much time to go there. The iguanas are really wonderful and beautiful animals. So it is beautiful the park, with very organized infrastructure. However there are just few things to see and depending on the time of the day, the iguanas could not be seen.

Wonderful garden and neat blue iguanas
Mar 2020
We came here on our trip to Cayman on a day that was quite windy and with intermittent showers so it was great to be inland instead of trying water activities. The garden is organized around different colored plants a green area, blue area, pink area, yellow area, etc. We loved seeing the different types of plants. We spotted several blue iguanas here (just out in the wild no guarantees) and also a pair of parrots (wild) and a snake. Be warned the tea house is a pagoda NOT a place to get food. Other than a few snacks in the gift shop they do not have a restaurant or cafe here. The signage to get there is limited so use your gps and pay attention if driving yourself.

Beautiful & Peaceful

Great way to spend a day away from the beach and ocean to enjoy the lush tropical surroundings and exhibits. Also a chance to see the blue iguanas while strolling the grounds. Nice gift shop to cool off in after your walk.

The perfect surface interval
Mar 2020
Can't dive? Go here. The lush gardens will feel like exploring a reef. It's the perfect place to discover all kinds of vibrant plants, exotic birds, and all kinds of other creatures (some favorites: the silver thatch palm, green parrot, and blue iguana).

Blue Iguana tour
Mar 2020 • Friends
Lovely gardens and exhibits, enjoyed the typical Caymans homestead particularly. The highlight was the tour of the blue iguana rescue and restoration project, where two of the young specialists involved in their care shared the natural history, personalities, and future of these engaging creatures. Unique to this island, the blue iguanas were desperately threatened and completely unstudied, so the naturalists undertaking the push to save them had to start from scratch. This account of their losses and wins is a window into the efforts needed for wildlife everywhere. Plus, our guides were so fun, and clearly adored their charges. Highly recommend.
