About
Take a stroll through the history of Puerto Rican roots and our ancestors in the Botanical Garden of Caguas! Here you can learn and admire about diverse fauna and flora and history in our island. In this protected garden you will find archeologic artifacts that used to belong our Taino ancestors. The remains of the Sugarcane factory Ingenio Azucar San Jose reside in this location along the remains of the centenary Barracon that is also on the location. The garden celebrates our diverse background that is composed of Taino , African and Spanish roots. The Botanical garden is located at only 30 minutes from San Juan. It is a beautiful park where you can either take a stroll and observe nature, meditate, or sight-see. The site is not only considered a garden, but also as a historic site, ecologic and historical museum.

    Great Puerto Rican experience
    What an amazing place!!! Geocaching brought us here and we had a great time exploring! We saw lots of iguanas (the blue / green ones are invasive) and then one of the staff told us the little salamander looking lizards are native puerro rican iguanas! So that’s neat. The view from the suspension bridge felt so exotic and everything is so well maintained. Thank you for a great adventure and God bless! 🇺🇸🇵🇷

    Peace, tranquility, and fauna never previously seen
    I went to el jardín botánico on a Sunday morning, right after it opened at 10am. The entry was free. The grounds are peaceful with a great variety and species of flora and trees. I witnessed species of plant-tree combinations that I have never seen previously. Allot at least two hours to take in the grounds at a leisure pace. I look forward to my next visit.

    Haunted event
    It's been a while since I've visited this garden during the day; this review is regarding the halloween event they host there. I have gone to different haunted houses/ events here in P.R. and in the USA and I have to say that this one really exceeded my expectations. The attention to detail was very good, plenty of scares and duration very satisfying. Overall it's worth every penny. However I would recommend upgrading your ticket so you don't have to wait in line, for me that was the only tedious part of my experience. Keep in mind that when you purchase your ticket you will choose an hour of entry but it's very unlikely that you'll be going in at that time. Lines are long, the reason being they send people in small groups which enhances the experience but therefore you'll wait will be longer.

The front entrance is gorgeous, however, when we visited in February 2023, there were very few flowers in bloom and lots of dry, grassy areas. We wondered if the gardens had yet to recover from the most recent hurricane.

Beautiful gardens to walk around! They do a good job of neither erasing nor glorifying the plantation history. Highly worth visiting especially if traveling between San Juan and points south.

I sent an e-mail for a guided tour. Was answered promptly. Upon arrival we were greeted and immediately introduced to Victor our guide. The tour was educational and a lovely experience. Grounds are so beautiful. Many areas to take beautiful pictures. Victor was very patient and answered our questions. If you are going to be in the Caguas area you should definitely pay a visit.

This place was AMAZING!!!! There were so many beautiful plants and trees and flowers-I couldn’t believe it! There were also a few ponds that had the friendliest turtles, birds, and even fish! Watch out though because one of them has an alligator!!! Make sure to wear your walking shoes as they tell you it’ll only take 45 minutes but before you know it you’ll have spent 2 1/2 hrs exploring everything that the gardens have to offer :)
This will be a definite go to as a place to take visiting friends and family once I move to PR and I can easily see myself spending a lot of time there simply enjoying the views of everything. Also, it’s free!!!

This is a beautiful hidden part of Caguas, full of the Puerto Rican heritage. In the midst of the variety beautiful botanical garden, you can’t help but fall in love with the tropical plants + trees that surrounded the Spaniards, Africans & Taínos. A shout out to Hector Galvez who gave us an amazing very informative tour. We recommend pay the extra fee to get Hector to be your guide. We left there in awe with the beauty of the Botanical Garden & anxious to inform others of what we had learned.

Found this place randomly while searching for something to do after our cruise. It was $50 from Old San Juan to get here, quite expensive for a taxi ride to arrive here. We ended up paying the $3 extra for the guided tour which well worth it so we didn't have to walk too far and when it started to rain we relaxed on the golf cart. Our guide was amazing and could name every plant we pointed out and told us the story of each garden section then let us walk around the pond and old sugar plantation. Enjoyed all the flowers blooming but most of all enjoyed the birds and iguanas. When you don't see little lizards or iguanas at home it was a highlight of my trip. Plus we found some cool bugs hanging around the garden so that was interesting too!
