A great place to visit in Grand Cayman. Many of the trees blossom or fruit between April and July, so I didn't get to see them in November. Even so, it is one of the best botanical gardens I've visited. I was excited to see several iguanas and other reptiles while taking the self-guided walk through the gardens. A guided tour is also available, during which even more areas of the gardens are made accessible.
Enjoyed the stroll around the gardens. We saw a snake and a parrot. We didn't see any blue iguanas until we asked a maintenance man. He was very helpful. All the blue iguanas have trackers inserted in their crest on the back of their necks. Apparently the population of blue iguanas dropped significantly after some stray dogs got loose inside the facility. Blue iguanas cannot climb trees so they were sitting ducks for the dogs (so don't waste your time looking up in the trees for them as we did!). There was a medium sized blue iguana by the rocks by the gazebo with water lilies (also quite pretty). The maintenance man showed us a large blue iguana which lives in one of the areas behind a maintenance gate. Seeing the iguanas made the trip worthwhile (and our kids loved seeing them.
This is a must-visit place on the island. Only $15 to walk through yourself or $30 to take a tour of the Blue Iguana breeding facility. The tour is well worth the money. Staff is extremely friendly. Overall a great experience in a great park.
A nice walk in the gardens and woods for just over an hour. October is off season for the orchids and some other flowers but worth the trip. Some wildlife was visible as well.
Beautiful gardens and was great to learn about the conservation efforts of the blue iguana! We didn't go on the tour, but were lucky enough to see one on the trail in the gardens.
