  • It is a required plan for nature lovers, much to know and learn about the plants. There are guided tours, the ideal is to go on a sunny day to appreciate and enjoy what it has to offer.

  • This is a botanic garden with beautiful species and should be beautiful but unfortunately the maintenance is poor. We joined a guided tour and enjoyed it (in spanish).  more »
  • It has variety of flowers and shrubs, both in closed places, like open places, where you can visit alone or accompanied. On the other hand, the last Friday of every month they offer at night a sightseeing tour.
