A visit to the Botanical Gardens on Stone Island

August 19, 2014

Last Saturday while enjoying an afternoon at Stone Island a friend suggested a walk down to the botanical gardens. We had seen a few pictures but hadn’t visited ourselves so we immediately said yes.

The botanical gardens are the first phase of a huge planned development called Amaitlan. In looking around for a link for you to more information the best I could come up with is the link here. This development may or may not come to pass as big ideas like this can be tough to turn into reality, but at least this first part, the botanical garden, is looking good and is being maintained and improved.

If you go, head down the beach at Stone Island past all the restaurants and keep going until you see a road that leads inland just before the Tres Amigos RV Park. Head inland about a block and you’ll see the entrance. When we visited it was open and we walked through unmolested, but there may be a fee at other times so be prepared.

The grounds are beautiful and it will be nice to see it during the various seasons. Below are some photos from our visit. Click on the first one and you can forward through them all.

    1. Lovely Nancy, thanks so much for taking the trouble to share with us all.

    1. It looks like it is well worth visiting. On one of my last tourist visits there, I took a hike around the island. That must have been around 2003 or so. It looks like a lot has changed.

    1. I agree! They have done a great job setting this up. Interesting to see the changes with the seasons.

    1. I have not been there…but as soon as I return I will remedy that!

    1. Lovely pictures, hope to visit when we return in January and really sorry we did not visit when we camped on the Isla far a few days in January of ’14.
