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...More

For six euros each, this was definitely overpriced. Nice enough gardens, but little or no explanatory signs, barely even any names of the plants. Quiet, relaxing. Nice peacocks, probably would not bother again.

Interesting garden to visit with some unusual plants. Lots of peacocks. We were the only visitors at the time as there was a wedding taking place that afternoon so they were closing early. It would be a spectacular setting for a wedding.

Nice gardens with some lovely plants, peacocks wandering about, also turtles at the pond. Nice place to get out of the sun and enjoy the peace, although quite a few people about didn't seem too crowded. It was worth the visit just to see the...More

My wife adores gardens and all things botanical and this is an extraordinary place to visit. We almost had the place to ourselves until lunchtime and it was most rewarding. So many good specimens in a very pleasant spot. We thoroughly enjoyed this place.

I walked along the main road to the gardens from the bus station but returned along a dirt track which was a safer option. Gardens very tranquil and worth a visit, I only saw 1 peacock.

If you like a quiet place with some stunning trees and cactusses, you definitely should go there. It is never busy.

Lovely gardens, easy to find. Very tranquil. Shame more people don't visit, we had to ring a bell to get in!

These gardens are quite fantastic and I would recommend them as an attraction. We were holidaying in the South and decided to escape the sand for a day trip. Two buses got us to Arucas and, after chatting to a lovely man in the Tourist...More
