A nice place to visit for a morning or afternoon. Lots of walking, but there are resting places with shade. Orchids were not blooming because it was so dry, but still lots of flowers and plants to see.

A lovely Botanical Garden with famed blue iguanas in abundance, a great way to spend a few hours in a peaceful setting. Very tranquil, nice gift shop with drinks and snacks. Don't forget to bring your insect repellent!

This Park is a wonderful place to spend several hours wondering around. It is about 40 minutes from George Town by public transportation which is very inexpensive. Admission prices were reasonable and the Park was not very crowded on the day we visited. Very peaceful and relaxing way to spend a morning.

I think this would be prettier at a different time of year, January seems to be not a peak month for the plantings. Still lots to see and interesting facts about plants and trees. Saw a couple iguanas, turtles and birds. A nice walk and worth visiting.

I will note right away that my wife and I visited at the end of December, when nothing was fruiting or in bloom. We missed the sites of the different varieties of orchids in their orchid boardwalk tour and did not see the dozen, or so, different fruits in their fruit tree exhibit. But we still enjoyed the walk. They... More

It is an enjoyable break from the beach and sun, but if you visit botanical gardens around the globe you could be disappointed. The colour garden is by far the best portion of the garden otherwise a bit drab in winter. It is not a must see attraction.

The gardens were drab. We saw no iguanas or birds. It was definitely not worth the ride or the money. I would definitely not recommend it!

Don't miss a visit to the botanical gardens when you are on Grand Cayman, you get to see flowers, parrots, iguanas and agoutis as well as getting a nice walk. Allow for an hour and a bit to walk through the site. The entry is $8 for a self guided walk and if you want to do the blue iguana... More

This is well worth the time to take a walk around. See beautiful plants and trees from the islands and around the world. Also see the endangered blue iguana (we saw one!). I nice relaxing way to get out of the sun and take a break from the beach.

This was a lovely park- and it was really neat to see the flora and fauna, especially the native blue iguanas. The tour is only offered twice a week, and provided some interesting history of the island, and explained the homestead exhibit in a way I would not have understood on my own. On the other hand, most of the... More
