  • It is an excellent place to come into contact with nature and learn about the native vegetation of Santa Cruz, has a lagoon where you can observe a great variety of birds depending on time. You have the option for camping and grills to cook something in the place, always maintaining the order and cleanliness.

  • When we were on the occasion of an exhibition of bonsai (by the way, poorly presented although there were good examples), we took the opportunity to visit the rest of the garden and started by the Orchid Garden, which has beautiful plants and no security because a child was starting a flower until it became his MOM by his side and there was no one in the garden. The "normal" route was nice, including the viewpoint, but when we decided to move forward on the inside garden, is not really careful with weed, roads that appear in the planes no longer exist and had to go back several times.

  • Recommended we take repellent but we forget, is huge very cute and my suggestion would be more accessible! and major attractions, an aesthetic improvement would not come badly. I recommend them if they are remiss to say them to return them to search since it is very difficult to find a remis of back wing city.

  • it is a nice and huge place to walk or have some fresh air. Only there are too many mosquitoes.
  • Nice walking.
  • This place is neglected. There is trash in the Woods and shows that don't make it maintenance for years. The only thing cute was the Orchid Garden.

Where to stay in Santa Cruz

Accommodations in Santa Cruz lie within the limits of the Cuarto Anillo, while the areas outside of the ring road remain largely residential. The north of Barrio Equipetrol houses the city's glitziest and most luxurious hotels, offering extensive lists of amenities, including popular fine-dining restaurants, swimming pools, and spas. Head closer to the center of town for more budget-friendly options, including no-frills hotels, pleasant guesthouses set in formerly residential buildings, and backpacker-friendly hostels.
