We learned so much on this tour. Our guide was very informative and stopped several times to answer our questions, provide information, let us take pictures, collect seeds which can be used to make necklaces, and visit the "Monet" Garden. Everyone from 84 year old grandmother who has trouble walking to 16 year son enjoyed this visit.

This botanical garden provides pathways shaded by beautiful trees. A place where you can walk and admire the vegetation at no cost. It is a peaceful place to get away from the hustle and bustle of the big city of San Juan.
