We spent over 3 hours in the park following the guide in the leaflet (50c). It's a lovely place to wander and the information is fascinating. If there was somewhere within the park to buy refreshment it would be perfect as we hadn't expected to...More

Wonderful to see what has been achieved with a former landfill site. Definitely not to be missed. We did the bus tour and got free entrance but we'll worth the usual 6 euros.

One of the nicest parks I have been to. Great location with excellent views. Great. Variety of plants, birds, dragon flies, lots of shade and seats, well set out, caters for those with disabilities. Informative story boards in spanish and English.

We were very pleasantly surprised when we visited the Palmetum. It is a beautiful, clean and well kept ecological plant park. And compared to some other parks on the island, it was cheap (about 3-4 euros/person). There are many nice look-out points over the sea...More

Visited the palmetum on what started a cloudy day. So glad we ended up here. It was a lovely quiet day, nice gardens and great views. The city rubbish dump has been converted into a great attraction. Well worth a visit.

Beautiful palm garden. All kinds of palms and very green and well maintained botanical garden. Nice place to spend an afternoon and enjoy exotic palms near Parque maritimo and Auditorio.

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

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.
