There weren't many people (approximately 6 with the addition of staff) it was colourfull. It wasn't that fun walking over a mile in the sun. And the blue iguana cage is in the middle of nowhere. But they were cool to look at (even tho they were all sleeping).

We did this as part of our Island drive. There is about 2.5 miles of walking trails through the gardens with lots of interesting plants to see. This is not a tour recommend on a hot sunny day as there if very little shade. Nor would I recommend the tour if you have a disability or have a hard time... More

We visited this place in the beginning of September and there was not a lot in bloom but the walk around the park was nice. We did see lots of neat trees and plants to include a few iguanas that were wandering around.

We walked the longer trail at the Botanic Park, and it was well worth it. We saw a huge Blue Iguana, and several smaller Blue Iguanas - this species is only found on Grand Cayman. The plants were beautiful, and the lake, also. It was not crowded the day we were there, so it was very peaceful. We would definitely... More

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!
