  • A total treasure, one of the most interesting tropical botanic gardens I've ever been to (and I'm a plant biologist). Great place to hike, bird watch and explore natural history. Garden has a canopy b...  more »

  • Let me start by saying that the entrance fee is 120 pesos per person, and that is an OK price. The walk through the jungle park takes at least an hour. It starts with a very slippery paved lane, but s...  more »

  • Awesome afternoon excursion into the jungle. We especially liked the tower and hanging bridge with the 4 and 7 year olds. And we saw spider monkeys!
  • Don't waste your time and money. We did not see any birds, monkeys, or any animal at all except many mosquitos. A few plants have a small plaque saying what it is, but I was not impressed. There is nothing at all else to see from the so-called lookout tower, except you see the tops of more trees. One star is too many stars for this "botanical garden"
  • The botanical gardens and archeological site are overlooked gems. Established many years ago, the gardens are diverse and mature. Raised beds of traditional Mayan medicinal herbs may also be seen under cultivation. Archeology spans from Mayan ruins, through the gum harvesting era to rebuilt Mayan huts. A morning walk will often include sightings of monkeys in tree canopy. Reasonably priced entrance is helpful to land preservation as well as local awareness of environmental issues. The entrance is difficult to see. When heading North on route 307 slow down immediately after taking the Puerto Morelos exit. This two lane exit has the entrance which is easily bypassed, go slow and keep close watch.
  • Saw a pack of howler monkeys but not much else. Some of the stops (see stairs, hanging bridge) need some work to kerp/make them safe
  • Simply a 2km walk across a "kind of" small jungle. Yes, you can see a couple monkeys and iguanas, the mirador gives you a half hearted look towards the sea... But apart if this is the only "nature" activity you get to do in Mexico, we think you should skip it. The Mayans beehive are simply a half dozen wooden rectangles with a pencil sized hole in it. And the occasional bee coming in or out. Also, for the first half of the walk we can still hear the highway near :(
