  • The garden is nice and the tour was informative and interesting, lasting about 2 hours. I couldn't give 5 stars because I'm not a fan of the fact that tours in English cost twice as much as the Spanish tours. At first I thought that it might cost more to hire English-speaking guides with the depth of knowledge required to give a good tour, but our guide (who was excellent) said she was a volunteer. To be clear, the tour and access to the garden is worth the $100 peso ticket in my mind, but I don't like to be gouged as a tourist simply because I can (presumably) afford it. Also they don't let you walk around freely to appreciate the garden
  • Our guide was outstanding the 2 hour tour was over way too fast and we went over the 2 hours. The garden was troublesome in 3 ways, there were NO signs identifying plants, others in our group missed them as well. Too many of the trees were planted too deep. It's a shame, they will suffer. Last, the poor plants were surrounded with gravel, sterile of leaves and other natural debris of a forest floor that the soil needs to provide a healthy environment.
