This place was an unexpected and AMAZING find! I loved every part of it, from the lush forest of exotic and well-cared-for cacti to the parading peacocks, dazzling ducks, defiant donkeys and content cats.After a stroll through the facilities, don't forget to pop into the bar for a Cervesa and Prickly-Pear cactus smoothie. The perfect re-fuel to get back out into the succulents for continued exploration.Could happily spend an entire day (or two) here! LOVED IT!!

Well, first of all my boyfriend and I love cactus. We have been at the cactus park in lanzarote already, so we we're able to compare. Why do I think so low of this park?There are paths, we're you have to rather hike instead of walk. That is really bad with children. Sometimes the paths are narrow between the cactus. There are dead cactus, fallen cactus, damaged cactus. The park has a spooky feeling to it. You can hardly read any signs. The cactus have grown very mixed, so there is no pattern visible. We just wanted to go away from there.I'd rather go to the botanical garden. There you have good trails to walk.

We had so much fun at this park! The cacti (and other plants/trees) were just beautiful and there were so many different kinds. It was very amusing to feed the animals too, it was a nice little extra that added to the experience. And we loved the cactus-juice. So sweet and fresh. We will definitely come again. 😊

Could not entirely suggest this park. If you really love botanics and cacti then you should absolutely go, otherwise you can skip it for better places.My 3 stars are mainly due personal taste, I did not find the park really well maintained or interesting. There are no facts or explanations of the carious species so at the end you are just wondering around this garden watching weird cacti for 1 hour at the cost of 6 euro per person.Another thing I dislike is the fact that over the menu of the bar. There are no written prices, I really hate this kind of stuff as it should be mandatory to write down prices so we know what are we going to pay.Also be very careful to check your legs and other body parts during or after the visit as in the middle of the visit we found some kind of small ticks on our legs which were already trying to get under the skin.

Lovely place. The combination of friendly animals, beautiful cacti, and a nice area make it a wonderful place to visit. If you like to interact with animals I would highly recommend to buy a bag of animal food when you purchase the tickets at the entry, we enjoyed feeding the ducks, chickens and peacocks a lot. There are lots of different species of cacti from small to big with various forms and shapes to discover. All in all a clear recommendation to visit.

Quite surprised to find this tucked away in the mountains. Very well maintained attraction with plenty to see. Lots of animals wandering around. 6 euro entry fee.

I'm from Ukraine and it was first visit to park with the cactuses. I need to mention that I'm not really into cactuses, but the experience in the park was amazing! It is so beautiful, they have animals there and delicious cocktail from cactus and banana! Maybe the park itself not really have a lot of attention and old dry herbs should be cleaned, but in general the part is big and atmosphere is wonderful. Definitely worth a visit! Really cool and the staff are nice.

I have never believed cactuses can be so wild and various and crazy. Definitely worth visiting the place if you like cactuses.The road from Maspalomas is quite long, almost 1 h drive on mountain road, but there are nice rainbow rocks on the way and a good restaurant before the rocks. 15 min drive from the park, if going to the nearest shore, there is a nice beach, quiet and protected from waves.

What an impressive collection of a broad variety of cacti! Really well maintained park, and a nice activity after a long hike or to have a change of pace from beach and pool. The roaming peafowl and chickens are also a funny addition!

Beautiful Park with a large variety of cactus from all over the world. It is a good walk, bring closed shoes. The entrance price with 6€ seemed a bit expensive at first, but it must cost a lot to keep these plants alive. The park has suffered from the pandemic, so it's time to go an support the owners to keep it alive!

Disappointing. Not the best garden to visit, very few information about plants, no map, no indication at all, at the entrance they take your money and leave you by yourself without any explanation. The botanical garden in Tafira is much bigger, well maintained and free! Do not hesitate...

What a great park! Well maintained, a lot to see. Huge, strange and beautiful cacti. There were no tourists when we visited the park in August 2021 so you have no waiting time at the moment and can make beautiful pictures.

One of the best parks I’ve ever been to. Really good people and even tho there were little tourists there, the park still looked great and offered so many different cactuses I didn’t even knew existed. It is fully worth the drive!!!

Looks very promising! We went along outside the closed park when we got lost during a hike, but the sophistication and the love the owners invested into the place seems overwhelming.We will definitely visit the park when it is open again.

I loved this place! Its amazing to walk around and explore at ease, you lose sense of time and the walk around becomes a meditation exercise in nature beauty, i loved it, very peaceful. The beginning may give the false impression that its not much to see, but the real beauty is in the open air garden that stretches behind, on the little hill, amazingly beautiful.It is indeed big and surprising, its so nice to see how many different species of cacti exist, some don't even look like a usual cactus we are used to. Nature is magnificent!i cant believe people in reviews here complain about the price being too expensive, 6 euros is a price of a coffee in Germany or UK.... they should be more grateful and appreciate the effort it takes to maintain such a big place. I am sad it does not have the reputation it deserves according to its beauty, diversity and peace it induces! A great discovery! They also have peacocks, ducks and chicken that follow you around waiting for their grains 🙂 feed them and have fun!

Absolutely amazing for cacti lovers. You can also spot some agile lizards running around, feed the chickens and the donkeys. Amazing experience.

    Just stroll around and enjoy the place. There is a magic fell to this place and if you like a bit of Canarian gardening, you will be inspired by all the different Cactus and the rustic touch this magic garden offers.
    Highly recommended and definitely worth a visit if you should be in this nontouristic part of the Island.
