  • In this garden is more than 1000 types of cacti, and their diversity is impressive. There are very small cacti, and such a huge-a few meter. This is not the experience of giving a lot of fun, but watching cacti can be for a lot of fun. The garden is not large, and there is a gift shop where you can buy prints images Manrique, what I believe to be cool.

  • We love the cactus and we decided to go since it is very near the caves of the Greens. It is super good care and one is with big surprises. Shop, restaurant and other facilities were super clean and well maintained. The box office was it pretty slow since there was only one man in the box. The mill that is also is a great place to take pictures. Garden visit fast, an hour more or less. And if you travel by plane, the cactus can be without problem provided that it is within the European Union :)

  • I didn't know what to expect as I am no botanist. But as I live in Andalusia I thought that the exhibits would be relevant. I was impressed by how many varieties there are and how colourful they can be. It's not a big site and you can see everything in half an hour but you can stay and have a drink in the café if you like.
  • Very interesting garden. It has a wow factor when you first walk through the entrance. Nice place to spend an hour or two. Cafe there also to chill.
  • It's a nice place with caucuses from around the world. Interesting but 45 minuts tops . Small kids go free and only 6 Euro per person.
  • Nice place. It's good to see a bit of green on this very dry island. Coffee was nice.
  • Well layed out if your into catus plants but we'll worth going to
