This private garden, hidden behind a wrought iron gate, is an absolute gem. Clearly loved and absolutely organic in its layout and maintenance. Lots of lovely and specimen plants alongside a few that were tired. You don't have to pay to enter, but leave 2 or 3 cucs as a tip and its still one of the best bits of value in Cuba.

Lovely garden - so different to the usual botanical gardens. We loved the recycling and "the make do and mend" that had been used throughout the garden - obviously due to lack of funds and or available resources. However, the naturalness of the gardens was unique. We saw humming birds to feeding from flowers. The owners very friendly and never was any pressure put upon us to leave some money at the end - we did leave a donation because we had enjoyed the visit so much. If in Vinales do visit this lovely garden.

...but once you do, it is intriguing. Like a secret garden. Seeing the geocache in the garden made us wish we were geocache-ers.

Again on the recommendation of our driver/guide Ray we visited this lovely little botanical garden. This has been in the family for 3 generations and as the original owners were of Chinese/Caribbean extraction the plants were gathered from these areas. Our guide was charming and very funny although she didn't speak any English, ask her about the "mother in laws' face" plant! She gets paid a pittance so a good tip in her hand (rather than in the bowl) would be so much appreciated
