They offer a tour of the blue iguana sanctuary most days at 11:00 am. You have to pay extra for the tour but it is a very interesting and enlightening tour. The gardens have several areas to walk through and you may see a blue iguana along the walk too. We have been to the gardens many times, but this... More

I've been coming to Grand Cayman for several years now and watched the Gardens develop. They are beautiful and well worth a visit. The Blue Iguana Reserve is situate within the Park and is now a separate attraction that you pay extra for - I didn't pay as the first time I visited in 2009 these guys were roaming free... More

It's a nice 65-acre park with woodland walking trails, flowers, lake, wetland for water life, orchid boardwalk. Was amazed to spot a number of : birds, fliers, turtles, reptiles, blue iguanas, and more. It's very nice to walk around, and has a little sit out out side of the shop just to relax. The entry fee is $CI 10. The... More

The scenery and gardens were nice but we only saw 1 small blue iguana which was disappointing. Evidently they've captured a lot of them and put them in a fenced enclosure because wild dogs were attacking and killing them. The only way to see the iguanas now is to pay $30 for a tour that includes the iguana area which... More

This place is great for spying the blue iguana, a native to the island. The gardens are beautiful to walk through the price is just right, and if you bring a picnic you could make a whole day out of exploring and enjoying this park.

The gardens were worth a visit but not spectacular. It is a good place to spend 1 or 2 hours and walk around the grounds.

Took the kids here to see the Blue iguanas. It was quite interesting, but not worth the 30 dollar entry. We justified the expense after hearing all the good work this program has done to bring this species back from near extinction. The rest of the gardens were quite rugged and dry like the rest of the island.

This was a very nice way to spend about an hour and a half. Easy walking trails well signed. Friendly staff and well laid out. In all fairness it would have been nicer to see all of the plants in bloom but we were there at the wrong time of year.

Nice garden walk, but not up to the standards of other places like Hawaii. Just remember that Canadian/American winter months are also their winter months, and the garden is not in full bloom at that time. Cool to see the rare blue iguana though.
