  • It is a cool spot. More than an ecological park, shows the greatness of God creating nature.

  • Recommended by its beautiful Japanese garden, although it shows carelessness in parts of the Park (arboretum, Cactus, etc.) and the lack of interest in taking care of the gift shop staff.

  • Well organized and quite interesting. Sadly the orchids gardens weren't open but an enjoyable few hours.  more »
