  • If you like a quiet place with some stunning trees and cactusses, you definitely should go there. It is never busy.  more »
  • These gardens are fascinating. Very, very peaceful. When we visited we were the only visitors and the only other people we saw were the lady who let us in and took our money (when we rang the bell - t...  more »
  • Lovely gardens, easy to find. Very tranquil. Shame more people don't visit, we had to ring a bell to get in!  more »
  • The gardens are beautiful but they need a make up, for instance most botanic signs with names of trees and plants are missing.
  • This garden is simply amazing. You could easily take a whole afternoon to explore the place! So many exotic plants and fruit trees: palms, bananas, avocados, mango, jackfruit, passion fruit and so many others!! There are a lot of peacocks you can observe and so many interesting corners in this massive garden: fountains, lakes, outdoor pavilions and hidden paths. Here's an insider tip: have the lumamba from their bar (hot chocolate with banana liquor) it's sooooo yuummy!
  • Tropical paradise Just 2 minutes drive from Arucas along the GC-330 towards the coast, is this little gem. MUCH better than the official Botanical Garden! And much easier to negotiate too. If you have a Garmin satnav it is actually programmed in. If not, start driving along the GC-330, be ready: the garden is on the RH side, in the "elbow" as the road bends left. There is a good car park. The garden is little known, although there are some coaches that drop off large parties. Mostly it can be very quiet. In low season, when they aren't expecting a coachload, they don't bother to staff the entrance kiosk. There's a bell to ring, but if they don't hear you, just start walking around. You'll soon meet a member of staff who'll sell you a ticket. Just stroll slowly so that you get to see it all. Mind the peacocks! It's not very large, but it is filled with different set pieces and mini-gardens. Delightful! And good lavatories, with soap and eau-de-cologne. There is no public transport to get here, but if you have a hire-car, this is an excellent half day out. .
  • No flowers and outstanding plants. Not worth visiting
  • Interesting Botanical Garden villa. Unfortunately the villa is closed to the public (it seems to be open only to host wedding receptions). The grounds are well manicured and limited area around the villa. In the rest of the Park appear quite neglected.
