  • Very nice gardens to spend a few hours exploring. Wide variety of plant species native to Ecuador and not. They have a multiple green houses with many orchids. Only $3.50 entry fee. Have your google translate app ready because all of the signs explaining the plants are in Spanish.
  • Such a nice place to study plants & flowers. Very well distributed & maintained. Was there for a nocturnal event and the place was spectacular
  • This is a good botanical garden especially for endemic plants, especially orchids. There's also an excellent bonsai section with a remarkable collection.
