The Botanico, The Botanical Gardens, in Puerto de la Cruz are lovely. Founded to house examples of plant life from every corner of the Spanish empire, they house a diverse variety of exotic plants. These range from flowers to shrubs and through to trees, but one of my favourite bits was not the plants at all, but the terrapins (or turtles, or whatever they may be) in the small water garden there. They were lovely. Some of the trees were quite amazing, my favourites being the giant ficus and the giant stretzliza. There's plenty of shade from these large trees so even at the height of the day it's quite a cooling and relaxed place to wander around.
Entry to the Botanico was ?3 per person.
Directions: The botanical garden is near the top of the hill that leads out of Puerto de la Cruz towards Oratava, at the outher extreme of the La Paz district. Plenty of busses pass that way, or it's a good 1/2 hour uphill walk out of town.
