  • This was a nice enough diversion. There were some large Iguanas but we saw little else in terms of wildlife. There seemed to be a good variety of mature planting. The raised walkway gave a nice perspe...  more »
  • Botanical Garden is perhaps not the right description. Rather, it is a large protected forested area with some minor "display surface" interspersed here and there with various plants and Mayan themes. Part of a display surfaces well groomed, others do not. Nice walk including a observation tower. Quite a lot of butterflies. We were completely alone there, so if you want to be a little to himself for a while, this is a tip. Mosquito repellent is great to take with you.

  • What a fabulous botanical park. Once you get in it’s a small entrance fee and laminated map that guides you through the park becomes your guide. Some small exhibits along the beginning of the route that are a nice touch but not the main course. Once you get off the real park road and into the jungle the park really opens up. Take your time, and enjoy a pristine piece of nature outside of the tourist trouble that is the rest of riviera maya. The trek is extremely light and can be done with toddlers and kids. Sneakers are recommended however as the path gets a little bumpy, think a stroll through the inner woods. We had no issue with mosquitos but I would not guarantee that luck for anyone. Animal wise we were unlucky and did not spot any spider monkeys but the trek is worth it on its own. Lots of other animals can be observed. Take your time !
  • Off the beaten path, easy to miss. Safe, leisurely walk through jungle paths, with sites along the way. Cool rope bridge, Mayan ruin, native plants, wide and winding paths and other surprises!
  • Great place to visit with our little one. Saw some lizards and lots of birds. Nice contrast to the beach scene!
  • Beautiful botanical garden. Well maintained. Lots of cute Iguanas and playful monkeys in the trees. Great hanging bridge with stunning view. A must-see is you are in Puerto Morelos!
  • Beautiful jungle setting. Be prepared to bring water, bug spray, and good walking shoes.
