Very beautiful place to visit with lush gardens many varieties of plants and flowers. Also, loved seeing some of the natural habit of bugs and the black & white iguanas. Truly a treat to see.

Beautiful botanical garden with easy walking trails, informative placards (all have English, some are bilingual), and several relaxing palapas. There's an optional hiking trail that leads to an impressive overlook of Anthony's Key Resort.
