Spotted the signs for this place as we were driving along the main road and decided to drop in. Entry fee was 6.50 euros each. The first part was a bit tired and we were not clear what the cave and amphitheatre had to do with Cacti. But then we came across a fantastic selection of Cacti. Spent ages criss-crossing... More

Holidaying in Las Palmas this was a bit of a trip. It was worth it though to see the biggest and best specimen of Aloe dichotoma to date. The garden was pleasant and vast. The price of the local fruit juice a bit steep as were some of the plants.... The sign said one price, the guy said another higher... More

This place was build to display the wealth of cacti. However it has seen better days. When you visit La Aldea, come here even if it's just to support the local economy. The park had some beautiful specimens of cacti. Claiming to have the largest cactus in the world, we could find the one with that should be the largest... More

Visited this place one morning when staying in La Aldea. Wonderful collection of Cacti which have clearly taken years to grow. Sad that some reprobates felt the need to carve their names in the leaves of some which made them die off but all in all worth the 6 or so euro entrance fee.

Interesting cactus park. Friendly staff, but not to much explanation about the cactus or surrounding.

A lot of cactuses in many sizes and shapes. Kids like donkeyes and ducks, One can buy some food to feed the animals.

If you are in the area, do come here. It's pretty cheap to get in (6,5 euro pp, our young children didn't have to pay). There are a few pets (ducks, pigeons, donkey's, dogs) so the children loved it! And we were enjoying all the different kinds of cactuses. I didn't know there're so many different cactuses). The staf is... More

The advert says it has the biggest cactus in the world. Absolute rubbish, I have seen bigger. However, it does have a wide variety of cacti worth seeing. Perhaps the biggest collection of cacti in the world? We arrived about 90 mins before the advertised closing time to be told they were closing at five. Old Spain strikes again! In... More

If you have a thing for Cactus, this is your place, you even get a free cactus per pair of tickets. Otherwise, it's a kinda bizzar super cactus focused park. It was all but abandoned when we were there so it was a little surreal and the random puppets set-up around the park are the stuff of nighmares. It was... More
