    The trails are not very careful, there is no signage for walking throughout the Park, there is no area of orchids, there isn't much to see. He would not again

    We went to walk and take pictures. This beautiful and full of trees there is plenty of shade and small bridges. If you're a nature lover, you must go. Having much time their trees are all adults, spend a few hours of entertainment. We made a picnic and had a great time. Do not forget to bring your camera. He had a girlfriend and his photographer. I recommend it

    It's a great place to walk around or jog in the morning. They have two nice fish tanks that also have birds and turtles. But some areas and gardens need a little bit more maintenance.

    Is a nice place to walk in the city, it have a good variety of plants plus is free. But if you want a bigger place and better views you can go to the Caguas botanical garden.

    A space of calm inside the caotic city of San Juan. There are two parts the South & the North. Check out this Botanical Garden, it's really pretty! There are several trails surrounded by nature, you can even get lost. You can spot a lot of birds, turtles, iguanas, lizards and trees & plant species. Inside are the headquarters of UPR, Headquarters of USFS, headquartes of Para La Naturaleza, agroecological projects. Plus, there's a library with all the identified species of plants & animals of Puerto Rico. They have restroom facilities, souvenir store, activities room, a ride if you don't want to walk by yourself and many hidden places. Also some groups practice yoga & martial arts over there.

    Terrible. On vacation from new jersey.. Nothing to see.. tried to get a tour and the employees were busy from whatever bs reason they made up. Water fountains have no water. After walking in circles and sweating for an hour or 2 we finally started seeing people being driver on tours. Walk all the way back to the desk. Wait for a half hour as two other same size groups got sent out before my group. And then when I was sick of waiting and asked for my money back for the tour (3 per person) and "theres no-one working that can refund money today". Very rude and unhelpful staff. I WOULD NEVER GO BACK.
