The palmetum was a lovely and very informative place, great views and very well kept, teeming with wildlife, the only thing that prevents me giving this a 5 star is that all the information beyond the plants names and original location is in the guide...More

We walked to the Palmetum without really knowing what to expect, and when we arrived we didn't think that it looked that appealing. We considered not bothering going in, but decided that as the entrance price was quite reasonable we may as well go and...More

What was previously a large high rubbish tip in 1970,s is now a large and varied palmetium, with great mixture of trees, flowering shrubs, trees and cacti. Some super views and easily accessible, with lift for those who can't do stairs. Definitely worth a visit,...More

Be sure to check out the exhibit and film left to the ticket entrance first before starting your walk to the right of the ticket entrance. Best to go in a generally anti clockwise direction. The Palmetum has good viewing spots and seats. Signs are...More

A place which used to be the city dump at 1970's has gone through a total face wash and turned out to be a very beautiful garden. A 40m high hill is now a place where one can see examples of various palm trees around...More

We enjoyed this garden as it had such a variety of palm trees and they were grouped according to the area of the world which they came from. There were good views over the city and especially of the Opera House. The indoor display explained...More

The Palmetum is perched up beside the ocean and offers spectacular views of the island as well as beautiful landscaping and everything you wanted to know about palm trees of any type. My one regret is there is a beautiful water park beside the Palmetum...More

Wonderful surprise to visit this most interesting garden, a must see for cruise ship passengers who dock just a little further down the coast from here. My husband and I visited twice during our holiday. The only negative thing perhaps would be that we would...More

The staff in the reception was very friendly and from then on the journey around the garden was very beautiful. They have a very wide range of plant species and an interesting diversity. This place was definitely one of my top visits in Tenerife.

I didn't think I was very interested in palms but I came anyway and was pleasantly surprised. I think it is worth investing 50 cents for the informative guide. The Palmetum is built on an old rubbish dump - there is a faint smell of...More

Hi. We stayed in Costa Adeje,and buses to Santa Cruz are easy.Takes about an hour and cheap enough. Once you get to Santa Cruz terminal, it's 10 minutes walk along the seafront. Enjoy.
