  • We visited the botanical garden with a guide, which made the walk very captivating (and our essential taste). Without knowing about a minimum, this might seem a simple walk to the foot of the trees. But the explanations allow to apprehend the cultural aspect of the visit. Do not hesitate to taste (and buy) the artisanal products (jams, fruit wines, cocoa...). The Botanical Garden we took 1 h 30 alone, we did not venture into the forest...

  • You can meet many types of trees guides provide you with much information and history of the place is also of interest. You can also make a simple walk among the vegetation and you will feel relaxed, often passes by the road and the raisins unnoticed but the truth visit is worth

  • It is a place that one should not miss. Account with an innumerable amount of trees exotic from around the world. The guides are very experienced which makes that travel is fun. What I didn't like is that there is little organization and personnel, but it is worth visiting it.
