Take a peaceful stroll through Jardin Botanico de Cienfuegos, the largest tropical exotic garden in Cienfuegos. Founded by Edwin Atkins and his wife in 1901, the garden covers an area of over 97 ha (239 ac). Having started off as a sugar mill, the area was eventually turned into a garden due to the owner’s passion, and has since expanded into a collection displaying over 2,000 plant species. Find orchids, palms, fiscuses, and bamboos as you wander the garden's paths. Plants and flowers have arrived here from all over the world, including as far as India and China.

  • Nice area with interesting trees, shrubs, flowers and birds. We had a guide who was very informative. There is a nice bar at the far end from the entrance serving excellent cocktails including a very good scooped out coconut one.
  • Exquisite plants. The air plants bromeliad were spectacular. The guide was very knowledgeable. Spectacular views of the mountains in background.
  • Great place to spend a couple hours. Trees from around the world as well as native species. You might also catch a glimpse of the Cuban national bird - tocororo.
  • We went here after the flamingo watching. It is on the way back to Cienfuegos. Not very big garden (we finished in 2 hours) and you can get ticket in the front entrance. There is a small cafe/restaurant in the garden so you may grab a coffee etc there. Don't expect something extraordinary, it's purely a nice green area with many nice trees and flowers. Good to enjoy the garden and nature during your vacation.
  • Initially sceptical we were totally filled with this lady's enthusiasm!! It was great - we recommend it!!
