  • This is a beautiful garden area, multi level via small steps so I would suggest it's better for able bodied people. It is much bigger than I imagined, lots of variety and even a pond. We spent...  more »

  • A great visit if you like cacti, or even if you don’t actually. The place hosts (what seems to be) hundreds of species and features a viewpoint, a souvenir shop and a caffe/restaurant. The only thing we were missing, were some explanations on the different varieties of cacti, which would make the visit more interesting. You can easily come by car, or bus as there is a stop in front.
  • A nice hour spent here walking amongst the wide array of cactuses. A calm experience, but I imagine it can get busy. Possibly a good thing to do if he weather isn’t great, although I imagine it could get quite busy. The coffee shop/cafeteria was nice with a great view of the gardens. (Quite a lot of steps!)
  • Great setting. Loved the display of cacti. The cafe is pretty good too with a lovely view over the whole garden. Best time to visit seemed to be around lunchtime when most coach parties had departed and there were a lot less people.
  • If you like plants you will like here. Plenty of different types of cactus to look at. There is a restaurant at one side of the garden, there is also a windmill above it where you can get a good view of not just he garden but the whole mountainous area behind. Adult tickets are 5.80 each. Parking is good.
  • This place is UNREAL! Absolutely amazing..It is so so beautiful that your breath will be taken away! A nature/flower lover or not, you will definitely fall in love with the place! Hope with these photos you can actually see/feel this beauty!
