It's dramatic, even the botanical garden of Oaxaca is closed due the Corona pandemic and know one knows for how long.

All these plants and trees were re-planted in this garden in 1994. The tour is great but make sure you go on a day you can get an English guide if your Spanish is not very good.

The garden is absolutely wonderful: it's divided between the tropical or wet (with tropical plants) and dry areas (with cactuses). The visit can be made in english, spanish, german or french every hour by guides that can answer all your questions and explain you a lot about this project.

We went on the English language walking tour and the guide we had was very informative. The original manager had not wanted signage explaining the plants but now the staff are working on an app that will identify and explain the plants

I took one of the English-language tours of the gardens, which can be visited only with a guide. Our guide was extremely informative, telling us about the history of the garden and about the plants and their varied uses. I loved seeing teocintle, the ancestor of maize, one of the most important crops in the world.
