Arrived at about 10.30am and it was pretty busy... Car park was full but there were spaces in nearby street, queues for toilets, no free tables in the cafe. But when we left around noon it was much quieter, so that might be a better time to arrive. It's €5.50 to get in but once you enter you can see... More

Don't be put off by the huge green metal cactus outside, inside this garden is an absolute treasure trove of cacti, from little ones looking like slugs, to the tentacles of one resembling an octopus, to huge trees. Take time to explore and walk along the upper terraces to see as many different specimens as possible - probably not for... More

Cesar Manrique was the architect who designed this garden. I though it would be an area of sand with lots of cactus dotted about. How wrong I was. It was truly amazing. Terraces of lava with every type of cactus you could imagine. very well designed and well laid out. I am not a particular fan of cactus but this... More

Fascinating garden designed by Cesar Manrique. We spent a pleasant couple of hours here, well worth a visit.

Just had some "tapas" (snacks) here - papas arrugadas con mojo picon (potatoes grown in the lava and cooked in salt, with the typical spicy sauce from Canary) a MUST here on Lanzarote! Then some small green peppers in the pan "pimientos del padron", very good olives stuffed and some local goat cheese. All super fresh and perfectly cooked! As... More

We loved walking around this garden and spent longer than we had planned. Beautifully designed and sheltered from the wind. You would never believe how many different types of cacti there are and how beautiful they are. From the smallest type to the giant ones, you will be amazed at the variety! There is a shop, toilets and a nice... More

Like other reviewers the idea of visiting a cactus garden in a country where wild cacti abound was not our first thought. Plus I'm not a gardener. But the Cesar Manriques connection was the draw and how pleased we were that we went. Not large - you'll only need an hour or so - but fascinating for both its variety... More

Driving through Lanzarote, you see heaps of cactuses. So we were a little bit afraid of the garden. But, we highly recommend this masterpiece of Manrique! Don't want to spoil it, but it's an amazing piece of art.

You don´t need to be a botanist or a gardener or a green thumb to enjoy this place. Very interesting to see that cactus is more than one shape (the one you have seen in old westerns). Whole place is well organised and clean.
