Oct 2020 • Couples
Beautiful and really big botanic park. We spent there few hours being almost alone.
Has a lot of beautiful plants, trees and of course palms!
Also you can see capital Santa Cruz and make fotos of if from far.
Really enjoyed walking around even though the weather was not good and was raining a bit.

An enjoyable botanical garden
Aug 2020
On a headland overlooking the port of Santa Cruz and the coast sits this attractive and well maintained botanical garden with exhibits from Africa, the Americas, Madagascar, Oceania etc. The visit is enjoyable with some fantastic viewpoints and unusual plants and costs a little over 6 euros per person. We found it an enjoyable wa to spend a warm afternoon.

If you like (botanical) gardens, this is a must-see
Jul 2020
Even if you don't, actually the Palmetum in Santa Cruz was just pure awesome. We absolutely loved seeing the exotic plants and flowers from all over the world, ranging from Brazil to India, to the Canary Islands, to Morocco, Madagascar, Australia, New Caledonia, Vanuatu, etc. etc. Simply splendid. And just so cool, literally! It was 34C° when we were there and the lovely trees provided a lot of natural shade for us to cool down too.

Honestly, words can't really describe the colors, the patterns, the styles, so in essence, the diversity of the flowers and plants on display. Just go see it for yourself. Must-see 5/5

Brilliant value for money
Feb 2020 • Couples
Thus a tranq spot in the middle of a busy city. Very good value for money, well signed. Each year we go the planting has developed. Top views over the city and ocean.

Palm trees heaven
Feb 2020
We were staying in Costa Adeje and took the bus to Santa Cruz. The Palmetum is only 10 mins walk from the bus station. Head for the Opera building and it is 400 yards further along the prom. Everything is well laid out and the guide leaflet (50 cents ) is informative and a must to enhance your visit. We spent over an hour on a leisurely stroll among the vast array of palms and foliage. We spotted a number of birds and butterflies as we strolled around the gardens. It would have been nice to have a cafe stop during the walk and maybe that could be provided without damaging the overall theme of the garden. A lovely experience.

Amazing place
Jan 2020
This was not built the last time we went to Santa Cruz and the city garden was closed too but this time on our bus ride from Puerto we were able to visit both.
The walk from the bus station took about 20 mins and admission was 6 euros, there is a basic drinks/snacks machine and toilets. The gardens are divided into world regions and is full of palms and other trees and plants from islands around the world. As you start at the base, and it is on a hill, the paths may not be suitable for less mobile visitors as it winds it's way to the top. There, there are views out to the sea. It is hard to believe that it was only open in 2014 as the trees and palms look long established, even in January there was a lot of colour. We spent over two hours there but mainly as one of my main interests is palms and tropical trees. There were a few Tenerife lizards and many large orange Monarch butterflies to be seen but the highlight (particularly for a birder) was a Hoopoe feeding right in front of us.
There is a pond and some streams in the middle with lots of seats and plenty of shade if hot, it was a warm 24c on our visit. The path zigzags half way down to where a self operated lift takes you down to the entrance/exit.
We had lunch in the open afterwards at the Concert Hall just a couple of 100 yards away looking out to the Palmatum.
An amazing place considering it was a former landfill site and due to a lack of funding was nearly abandoned but after 7 years of hard work they now have this peaceful and educational oasis.

Fascinating, enjoyable and relaxing
Jan 2020
This is well worth finding on the front at Santa Cruz. To find the entrance walk past the concert hall and the lido towards the gas terminal, and then climb the stairs through the car park. Some people give up at this point! The entrance fee is really good value. We spent a good two hours walking slowly around the clearly labelled beds and plants. There are good views in and out and theres also some surprising wildlife to be spotted. The exhibition on the ground floor is easily missed so make sure you see that before you go in.
