  • Impressive garden with nothing but cacti. But overwhelming beautiful. I did not like cactuses but this garden changed my idea. Although quite small we remained there anyway long walk around, enjoy and take lots of pictures. Normal entrance price is 5.5 euro but a combined ticket for Jameos del Agua, Caves Verde and the Jardin de Cactus cost 20 euros. Also the original and funny indications of the toilets could delight us.

  • You can see a lot of cacti. That's kind of it. If you like cacti you should definitely come here otherwise it's a bit boring.

  • 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.
