The gardens are beautiful and we really enjoyed learning about the plight of the blue iguana. If looking for a non beach activity definitely worth the drive to explore this part of the island.

We have visited here several times on trips to Grand Cayman mainly to see the Blue Iguana's. This time we virtually had the place to ourselves and were lucky enough to see some iguana's roaming freely through the grounds. We visited early afternoon and there...More

We were there on a warm morning and enjoyed seeing many blue iguanas right on the walking trail. We also went on the guided tour of the Blue Iguana Sanctuary. This is a well done tour and you get to see many of them up...More

Went December 2018, nothing blooming, disappointing. Seeing blue Iguanas was nice but not worth the drive or cost in my opinion. Kids were bored

Well done garden. Have been there several times. Lots to see and much to learn. In the middle of the island. Much different than the coast and beach.

Located deep in the sound of Grand Cayman, this attraction is nice for nature lovers. We didn’t see much but were lucky enough to spot a Blue Iguana on a leisurely walk. Also saw some turtles feeding on a coconut. Lots of trees and shrubbery...More

Our visit to the gardens in February was a stroll with very little in bloom. We seen 3-4 Iguanas which was great. Suggest the gardens should charge less for entrance during the off season. Would not recommend until full bloom season.

The Botanic Park offers a wide range of beautiful flowers and also a bit of Cayman's history, I was never really a flora type of person but it was worth it. I would definitely recommend if you want something to do in Cayman.

It's quite far. I don't think many cruise shippers visit it because they often have to be back on the ship by the early afternoon. That said, in a car I would leave about 40-50 minutes to get from the cruise terminal to... More

Yes there is a fee. They also seem to have a discounted fee, if you buy the Botanic Park with Pedros´Castle together. This gives a substantial saving and both are recommended to visit if you want to learn a bit about the... More

I will try and provide some answers: 1 - Is there a central hotel location close to public transportation to these attractions? The main tourist area is called Seven mile Beach and it is the epicenter for tourist accommodations,dining and tour excursions. It is served well by the public mini-bus system. 2 - Are there tours that go to these attractions? There are some tours that go to the Botanic Park and pass through the East End (might stop at Davinoff's, I don't know), but most are...More

We are considering a 6 night trip to Grand Cayman. We like the beach but are not into water sports and wonder if there would be enough to keep us busy. A possible itinerary is. Day 1 - Arrive, walk around and go to beach,. Day 2 - Full day island tour. Day 3 - West End tour and go to beach or a massage. Day 4 - Davinoff's Concrete Sculpture Garden and Pedro St. James National Historic Site . Day 5 - Queen Elizabeth II Botanic Park and Mastic Trail. Day 6 - Cayman Turtle Farm and...More

I am wondering how you came up with this proposed itinerary. To me, one of the best features of Cayman is slowing down to "island time" and relaxing on the world famous beaches. (You would not actually have to go into the water if that did not interest you, but it is incredibly tempting). IMHO you should plan to spend most of your time on the beach. To answer your questions: there are public buses to go to the sculpture garden and Pedro's castle, but it is not a short trip. From SMB area it...More
