    Tour guide was extremely knowledgeable having studied for 8 years at University. Also great company as we walked around the gardens. Interesting species of plants.  more »

    Do not expect to a botanical garden of international reputation, we're here in a private garden, but where local plants have been carefully arranged. A large part of the pleasure of the visit is the guide who speaks french, is very competent and rather jovial. You can have a drink at the expense at the small bar, and even apparently sleeping in a small house of Cuban style, inside the garden. Visit when you have a moment between two excursions in Vinales...

    This place is my favorite local spot. You can visit with parrots and a jutia, see local fruit growing including cacao, and there's a cheap and well-stocked bar inside. The guide is entertaining and educational, if you opt for an informal tour.

    While the botanical garden is nice it will not throw you over board with regards to the variety of plants in the garden. However, the little "casa particular" within it was charming with the lady owner cooking the best homemade food every evening.

    Worth a short visit, excellent guide but don't expect too much from the garden.

    Not worth it. Small place. Better go to Soroa's Orquideario.

    Looks like someones Backyard. Still a nice place to catch some shade.
