This garden is located inside the walls of one of the forts built into the walls of the city. Nice, quiet place with mainly local plants and trees and birds. Cost is 10 pesos.

Quaint garden in the city plus mini fish pond. A welcome use of space in the city. 15 pesos for a 5 min stroll. Nothing super interesting but I did enjoy it.

This small walled garden is a pleasant escape from the heat and bustle of Campeche's old city. There are no flower beds but many mature trees shading the walkways and a few benches to rest on. Most trees and some bushes have signs with scientific...More

This is very small but well done. The entry fee is 15 pesos, and there are benches to sit and rest in the cool shade. It's located in one of the old forts that made up part of the city wall.

The pictures they use for advertisement are completely different, I wish it looked like that. Plants are just ok and you can walk all around in two minutes. Not worth the money nor the time.
