While this is not a large garden, it does have a good selection of many of the tropical plants of this area. You can see adult specimens of several trees and palms. Certainly worth a visit.

This garden was recommended to us by the policeman who told us that the Borda Garden was closed for construction. It was peaceful and had some interesting plants. I suppose for Cuernavaca it is a pretty good arboretum. On the grounds is the small house...More
