Mainly dedicated to trees and not flowers. Beautiful in spring with blooms galore. Get a good guide from gardens because nothing labeled and you will miss a wealth of information. Go in am to avoid heat.

As others have said, you won’t find brick pathways lined with bougainvillea or manicured flower beds here. This is a natural garden which apparently in Cuba means overgrown grounds with some interesting trees that are sorely in need of pruning. It was a beautiful day...More
