This is a nice stroll through the crater with a huge variety of different plants. The cactus section is amazing. Some very unique and huge trees from all over the world. About an hour easy walk. No admission fee.

We happened upon this garden after seeing on a sign at the nearby lighthouse. It ended up being a highlight of our trip. The garden unfolds naturally in an easy circle that was about 2 miles if you walk all the side trails. Very unusual...More
