    The place is very nice with a great diversity of flora and fauna, but missing some facilities basic as a cafeteria or a place where to buy water. Bathrooms leave much to be desired. In the same way is a place of natural beauty that should visit.

    Unfortunately it has nice start, but as you go deeper into the garden it shows carelessness and bad maintenance, few chairs, little shade, very dangerous viewpoint with ancient staircases and without shelter, sincerely not worth wasting time on This place, since there is very little to see, and on a hot day there is no where shelter.

    lack concern for signage, cleaning, and some kind of guide for visits. It has potential and a proper management can be the difference.

    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.
