  • Great respite from city traffic and commotion. Mellow walks and thick greenery. FREE!
  • 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.
  • Nothing that spectacular about it. We got to see a big iguana which was pretty cool and lizard and turtles. There were a few pretty flowers and reees but I wouldn't label it as being a "botanical garden". (Not compared to the legit ones in Washington, DC.)
  • We came to San Juan on the Carnival Magic. We got a taxi to the gardens ($30). We were greeted by a sweet young girl. Free entry to walk around. We decided to take the golf cart tour ($5/each) with a guide. We were glad we did b/c the place is huge. She was very informative. After the tour we walked around some on our own. It's beautiful and serene. Well kept! So glad we visited. They called a taxi for us ($35 back).
  • Beautiful place to check out the gardens.
