There were a lot of cactuses, even very old. Also some nice, kind animals to feed. Kind staff and very good cactus juice, recommended:)

Never thought that there are so many cactus in so many different shapes. Combined with the sunny weather and the Mexican music we had a perfect visit for almost 3 hours. At home I realized that I had taken over 80 photographs of the plants.
