We read about the gardens and expected a small oasis, instead it was a garden with potential. The exhibits were mostly of contemporary art that were ok. Until a renovation is completed, my recommendation is to skip Garden Borda.

In my opinion this site should be much prettier than it is. While it is worth a visit, you can see it all in half an hour. There are current plans to upgrade this site, which is certainly a good idea.

It was nice to be under shade during the hot time of day. The pools need attention, as well as some of the gardens. Nice look at old architecture.

These are beautiful gardens that always have a couple of interesting art exhibits going on. Often there are excellent concerts by the water.

Very nice gardens, but what was a surprise is that we stumbled upon the opening of a photo exhibit of Armando Salas Portugal. His photos were taken in the late 1940s and were black and whites of the Mexican Indian ruins and contemporary idiginous Mexicans...More

The Jardin Borda has a fascinating history. It would be nicer if the garden areas and lake were kept up better. Still, if you are looking for a break from the noise and traffic of downtown Cuernavaca, this is a peaceful natural area. In addition,...More

Now lovely restored gardens, the grounds lead one to imagine the days when mule teams, laden with wagons of silver, securely sat behind the walls of this compound, a wonderful break from the crowed sidewalks, nofrom tise, and traffic-laden streets just steps away.
