“Quite Wild!”

Jardin Botanico de Vinales

Reviewed February 7, 2013

This an interesting place, worth a visit. The Garden is very old and not really looked after. Maybe that's what it makes it look interesting because it's quite wild. There are few dolls here and there hanging from trees which is quite creepy and the deeper you go, animals start to appear, ex.: crazy cockerel running around, which made me very uncomfortable and leave. Overall it's really worth a visit because it's a nice walk to there through the neighbourhood and the people who owe the garden charge you whatever you pay.

We walked up, from the other side of town, to find the Jardin....wow! was it ever worth it!

It's a tad hard to find, none of the signage that's we're so used to in Canada. When we arrived, the gate was closed so we weren't even sure we were in the right place. Sure enough, we were called in by the owner's daughter and had a wonderful morning. We enjoyed some of the healthy drinks they blend on-site, spent a great deal of time wandering the beds and even got a tour of their kitchen where they were roasting a pig to serve a tour group for lunch.

They knew the people where we were staying at our casa (it's a small town!) and made us feel very welcome. Well worth the trip if you're a gardener, or just want some time and space to enjoy the beauty of the valley while enjoying a cool beverage.

Much bigger than expected and worth a visit to spend an hour or two, especially on a hot afternoon as it is cool and shady within.

I definitely recommend visiting this place if in Viñales. It is funny to see how one single house can have such a big garden attached to it. It takes about 10-15 mins to walk around the garden so it's not a full day excursion but might as well go if in Viñales. No matter where in Viñales you are staying it does not take more than 10 mins. to get to the garden. It can be trickyt to find as there are no signs but everyone knows where it is, just ask a local.
