We visited as part of a cruise excursion (Risco Bello, the orchid gardens and botanical gardens). This garden, in contrast to the other two, is less formal, with little or no labelling of the flora. There a 5 terraces, with fairly steep steps connecting them,...More

We had read about these gardens and decided to visit. It was very strange. You have to go up a steep hill to get there (but that is normal for anywhere in Puerto de la Cruz.) When we got to the gardens the gate was...More
