The only place on the Island where the staff was not especially helpful. We did see Parrots and by looking through the crack in a fence we got to see a Blue Iguana.
We took the guided tour with the head grounds keeper. Excellent. Enjoyed the detailed history of the 'garden' and life of the area. Others were walking about with the 'self guided' tour, but you miss a lot of the intricate information.
We visited during the early afternoon at the hottest part of the day, and in mid-April after Easter. The grounds were pretty - we liked the lily pond and gazebo there. We saw only two blue iguanas, one was in a pen which we assumed was part of the iguana experience which was an extra charge that we opted not... 更多
Here you can see many native and non native tropical plants. In addition, bird species of many types (including Cayman Parrots!). There is a breeding program for the rare and endangered blue iguana on the grounds. During my visit, I was able to see a few of them 'in the wild' . This is well worth the visit if you... 更多
Well tended, beautiful gardens with about 1 mile wood trail loop. The Blue Iguana breeding event was a bit expensive but worth every penny. Even in the park we saw 5-6 iguanas just puttering about.
This is a national preserve (basically the Caymans' version of a National Park) that is well-maintained and a great destination if you love the outdoors. It's also the only place you will see the blue iguana, which is native to the Cayman Islands. Come in time for the 11 AM behind-the-scenes tour, wherein a park warden will take you back... 更多
Our trip there was mostly to see the famed blue iguanas. But the park was really beautiful. We saw 7 iguanas just walking around the park. The flowers are beautiful and being from the states so unusual from what I'm used to seeing. There are lots of little stops along the way and you have to see the "tourist tree"... 更多
This is a wonderful botanical garden. First off there is a caged Cayman Parrot, very pretty bird who did not want his pic taken. It's also has a conservation center for the blue iguanas which are very rare and cool to see. We did not take the tour of the conservation center but saw an iguana on the path around... 更多
I love visiting QE II Botanic Park with my guests. Whenever we have guests over, we take them there and they are surprised by how much they actually enjoy looking at plants and flowers. Some of my friends are party goers, urbanites who never really cared for flowers and plants, but then once we step into the Park, they seem... 更多
Let me start by saying this was not the best time of year for us to visit the park. None the less it was still enjoyable. There is an Orchard boardwalk that is seasonally flooded for many of the local orchids. The Heritage Garden was nice it had a Cayman house in the center of the garden, and how life... 更多
The park was very nice and beautiful! The separate iguana tour was fun and a good chance to learning about the blue iguanas. However personally it was too hot and did not entirely interest me.
I made a relatively short stop here with my 9 year old son who desperately wanted to see blue iguanas. It was just too hot for us to stay more than a couple of hours, but it would be possible to bring a picnic and make a full day of it. We didn't pay for the very expensive iguana tour... 更多
We always go to the garden when we are on Cayman. In April, the flowers in the color garden were just beautiful. The new cactus garden was complete and lots of beautiful plants in there. The water lillys were beautiful as always.
You probably know if you are a botanical garden person or not. If you are, you're going to enjoy this one. For us, the fun was seeing the blue iguanas, which were not hard to find; we saw at least half a dozen, not including the ones in cages. There is also a wide variety of various colorful plants, none... 更多
