  • The most charming cactus garden with amazing cacti from many places in the world. Beautifully well thought out, tidy and tranquil. There is a cafe and shop inside. Not much information is provided about the plants however the landscaping and variety of plants is quite unique! Entry is about €4.50 but you can buy a discounted multi-trip ticket to visit more attractions around the island.
  • What a disappointment. Sure, the garden has a nice structure. But it's so small! The moment you enter, you get a view of the whole garden. With that, you've seen it all. As a matter of speech, the shop and bar are larger than the garden itself. If you've ever seen the cactus gardens of Gran Canaria or Mallorca: this is nothing compared to them. Don't spend your time here, there's lots to do and see on the island that are worth it.
  • Small but splendid botanical garden, dedicated to the cactuses and designed by Lanzarote's born architect César Manrique
  • Great for plant and art lovers! Amazing to see all the different types of cacti and all strategically placed. Green finger envy!
  • Great way to spend a couple of hours. Lots of really amazing cactus plants in a very pretty garden.
