  • A taxi is essential to visit El Botánico National Garden located outside Havana, near the Park of exhibitions international of Havana. 25 euros each way. It heats the back, because it is very isolated and taxis are extremely rare. Not show current no bus. So plan other 25 euros and negotiate with the driver. He can wait you 2-3 hours or can leave and come back at a time agreed in agreement with you. Do not expect a lush vegetation. The garden is flat, the aisles paved, visible markings. Attention, cover your arms and head, the sun hits hard. Long aisles are in full sun. These aren't the Palm trees that you protect. For the visit count at least 3 hours (walk, photos, breaks, research in the atlas botanical if you're equipped to, reading information on the components of information, (enrichment of your guaranteed latin) or simply, as in my case) simple joy, curiosity and wonder accompanying linger in a botanical garden of the Caribbean he takes an hour at least if you want to dine in one of two restaurants that border the garden to the North and the South. Very nice like atmosphere (terraces and garden) at least in regards to the menu. And that chat staff, that conversation without interruption and stronger than the song of the birds. You're going to spend a few hours in the quiet, the silence here means birds and rustling of foliage... everything smells good and fresh, flowers, trees, all is well, a few bites of mosquitoes complete well-being. Or not, it's perception. You would lucky, you to taste everything. I have visited the garden 4 week after Irma. I deplored the damage and I strolled along with 3 hours of tractors, trailers and bulldozers (everything an army) which erased the traces of the passing of Irma with noise. Noise, Yes, but... matter of perception: the sky was a beautiful blue, little white clouds on the horizon, trees flowered in yellow, orange, violet, indigo and a beautiful Japanese garden. Zen.
