  • In a city like San Salvador, with so few green areas, the Botanical Garden is a gift. The place is very well maintained and the cost to enter is accessible. Despite being in the heart of the city, it is a cool and away from the noise space.

  • Amazing place to go with the family. Beautiful garden a lot of different trees and animals to see, not so hot to walk around. You can park anywhere, entrance is only $1.00 it couldn’t be better. They have an small cafeteria and a juice bar also they sell plants. Great place for the kids to run free
  • Full service nursery/vivero with plants, flowers, herbs, soil and pots. Big variety, excellent prices, discount if you pay with cash. Fresh cut flowers, bought a dozen ginger flowers for $3. One of my favorite places to go.
  • Un buen lugar para ir en familia y disfrutar de la naturaleza. La entrada es accesible y un buen ambiente en general.
  • Sadly the place requires a lot of maintenance to look good, because it looks abandoned, the administration must realize this, pools look dirty, you can barely see the fishes, or distinguish the turtles when they're swimming, the building where herbs are shown and stored, there's dust and mud in the playground for the kids, it should have grass instead
  • This little tropical jungle give the feeling that only raw nature gives is very organized and has all kind of tropical trees and lagoons with red fish and silver carps and other local sweet water fish is nice enjoyable relax has picnic area ,park with swings for kids and convenient store with chairs and umbrellas
