If you like cacti and succulents, you have to stop here. The garden is full of cacti up to 49 years old. You can find hundreds of species for sale in the nursery. The owner is a very interesting man.

What a pity the owner has such a terrible attitude towards people from another country. As a plant lover it would have been a great place to expand on my collection - pity.
