“Unexpected family fun on way to Acapulco!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2014

We visited this place almost by chance because we were looking for something to do while visiting Cuernavaca on our way to Acapulco, and we could not have been more pleased with the experience.

With some hesitation about spending a day in a park that has nothing but plants (we have small children 5 and 9), we bit the bullet, paid the admission fees, and hoped for the best. However after passing through the gates, we were all overwhelmed by the beauty of the meticulously maintained gardens, the serenity of the setting, and the cleanliness of the park. There are probably 6 or 7 gardens in the park, each with its own theme and each more impressive than the last. We loved the Italian and Japanese gardens, and the kids exploration area. We ended up spending around 7 hours there, and everyone from youngest to oldest left extremely happy.

So if you are in the area and in need of relaxation and inspiration, I highly recommend a visit to the Jardines de Mexico park.. here are some tips that may be helpful:

1. Bring a hat, dress in shorts and t-shirt, wear walking shoes, and wear sunscreen.. the sun and heat can be intense and the place is huge.
2. You can pay extra to take the trolley tour, but we found that walking the park at our own speed was a big part of the experience.
3. Download a plant reference app to enhance your vieweing
4. If you have kids they should bring a change of clothing for the spash park
5. Try every flavor of the frozen fruit bars they have around the park - my favorite was passion fruit, followed by coconut!
6. Buy some water bottles at the entrance to stay hydrated
7. Bring earbuds to listen to music, and maybe reading material if you plan to take breaks during your walk.
7. ENJOY!

“Amazing place!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2014

I visited this place and I was impressed a lot. It's very clean, the gardens are amazing, every detail of them is magnificent. I loved a lot the "Italian Garden". You can walk or take a VIP tour, and you must take with you your camara and hat, because the landscapes are dreamy and the sun at noon can be a little disturbance.

“World's biggest Palapa?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2014

My wife and I enjoy beautiful gardens and make it a point to seek them out. We came in the first week of June expecting blazing colors. We were quite disappointed, actually there were very few blooms anywhere in the park except in one hothouse. What we did find of interest was the variety of unique water fountains throughout the park. The central water fountains in the middle of the park rival some of Europe's most magnificient mansion fountains. The other thing we were awed by was the huge Palapa that is used for group affairs by the entrance. I think it's the largest one in the world
