I have visited this place on numerous occasions over the last 15 years - but it is nowhere near as good as it was (or the adverts claim). There were no iguanas (something to do with keeping them protected from dogs) and the paltry Perspex...More

My only regret about visiting these lovely botanical gardens is that our East End tour didn't give us more time to spend here! The entrance provides you with insect spray. The areas are labeled and easy to view. There are so many beautiful plants! This...More

This place was neat to see and the trail took about an hour and a half to walk. If you came to the Cayman Islands for the beaches, this place is not for you because all you see is plants. They have removed all the...More

This is a nice botanic park. There were lots of cool plants to see, along with some animals (we saw birds, a turtle, a snake, and lizards). There are two options - a shorter walk through the park and a longer one - length is...More

We cycled to the Botanic Park from the Morritt's Resort. Having read previous reviews we were worried about insect bites, so we were prepared and had insect repellent on before we left and reapplied on arrival- no problem with insects and no bites! The gardens...More

Yes, there are bugs here so come prepared. I didn't get bit, but others did. I suggest checking out the sand garden and tea house....beautiful. This is a must see location for folks who want to experience a little more culture while visiting the island.

We visited this place during the hottest time of the day...but it was still enjoyable. When we arrived the employees offered us some bug spray. Since we were staying on the North side we knew how bad the mosquitoes were and we did partake in...More
