We enjoyed our few hours in this garden. We took the tour and the guide pointed out many different fruits and plants and most importantly a bee hummingbird protecting her egg, we would never have noticed her without the guide! We only saw 1 (potted)...More

The place has a natural beauty. The main house is great. There was music. Nice pictures. Apparently it was not the orchid season and unfortunately did not see a lot of beautiful flowers. I have seen much better flowers at my humble local store in...More

The garden is small but since it is operated on a voluntary basis, it is impressive. The tour guides do not receive any form of salary so ensure to tip them as you find appropiate. The garden has a small cafe with fresh juises etc.

If you like gardens and plants this is the place to go. A gentle 5 minute stroll from the town center. The free guided tour took about 20 minutes. A small contribution at the end of the tour is appreciated.

The Jardin Botanico de Vinales is a special place, founded by two ladies of Cuba a long time ago. It receives no government funding and attempts to preserve the flora of Cuba in an island whose main attractions are not ecological! The gardens themselves are...More
