  • 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.
  • Great respite from city traffic and commotion. Mellow walks and thick greenery. FREE!
  • 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.
