If you are not a die-hard botany fan there will not be much to interest you. On the other hand, the park has a good variety of plants that are well labelled and a few other displays like a Mayan house and a rubber farmers camp.

We really enjoyed a morning stroll through the gardens, there were lots of birds and two spider monkeys playing in the trees. It was a great treat to watch Mama and her baby eating fruit in the tree tops. The hanging bridge is a great walk and view.

First, a couple of tips:

Use the bathroom before you begin your walk as there didn't appear to be any others on the trail. Take water with you or purchase it at the entry. Bring bug repellent.

We saw natual flora though little was in bloom at present. Cenotes, Mayan ruins, spider monkeys, a simulation of a chiclera camp and a fun (optional) rope bridge.

Saw lots of wildlife here. It's cheap to enter and a worthwhile cause. A lovely morning walk and great views across the mangroves.

We sought out this attraction a few years ago, when we rented a car to go to Puerto Morelos to snorkel. We stopped here to complete the day. We did not see any monkeys, but walked the trails looking at the different types of plant species. The suspension bridge in the jungle was fun, but I must say there isn't anything that would draw us back for a return visit. Maybe the time of year (late March) wasn't the best time to view the flora.
