  • Call before going. It cost us $50 in cab fares. A security guard stopped us at the entrance and said the gardens are closed as they are still working on repairs as of Dec 13  more »
  • 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

  • Considering how it's inside the metropolitan area, it's of easy access to those of us who don't have a car. Bus Routes (AMA) 7 and 9 drop you off close to the entrance. Has its own free parking. The garden is divided on different sections with trails; a garden of architectures, a section with orchids, a lake with several ducks, garden of medicinal plants, area of activities, section of ponds with turtles, a second lake, a pine tree garden, and a bamboo section are some of the sections you can find. A diversity of birds and flowers can be seen throughout the garden. You can find a welcome center with bathrooms and a gift shop, and another set of bathrooms inside the garden. Also has a section where people visit to do yoga and meditation. Has a good route for jogging. During the September 20 of 2017 strike of hurricane Maria, the garden received heavy damage and was forced to close until fixing and maintenance had completed. Make sure to contact before visiting to see if it's open.
  • It's a beautiful place but there was a hurricane so give time until the trees will grow again...
  • After Huricane is under repair but still a great place to visit.
  • Great place to hike but needs upkeep. The turtle ponds are the best part to waste time.
  • Beautiful place anyone should visit. Well maintained and relaxing.
