The Botanical Hotel is something of a symbol in Puerto de la Cruz and boasts its own private gardens with over 25,000 square metres (6.2 acres) for you to loose yourself among its trees and plants, as well as a fish pond. It is the perfect spot to spend a pleasant afternoon in and take a short walk. The splashing of the fountains will serenade you as you cross wooden bridges and peruse this magical setting that invites you to relax and meditate. The gardens are inhabited by two black swans, a host of Japanese Kois and lush vegetation comprised of over 200 different species of plants and trees. Opening hours: Every Thursday at 17:00, subject to prior reservation. Entrance price: € 5, includes botanical tour with guide.
