Puerto de la Cruz' Jardín Botánico to reopen with new access measures & limited capacity

Jardín Botánico de Puerto de la Cruz

The Jardín de Aclimatación de La Orotava (La Orotava Acclimatization Garden), popularly known as the Jardín Botánico de Puerto de la Cruz (Puerto de la Cruz Botanical Garden), will reopen on Wednesday [22 July] after almost five months closed as a result of the state of alarm decreed by the Government of Spain on March 14.

Throughout this period maintenance has been carried out, originally aimed at preserving the watering of the collections and, after the introduction of the new normality, daily cleaning, irrigation and pruning works were restarted, including the removal of the damaged material as a result of the storm that hit the island on February 23.

The garden, managed by the Canary Institute of Scientific Research (ICIA), attached to the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries of the Canary Islands Government, will resume its normal schedule from Monday to Sunday from 09:00 to 18:00.

To comply with sanitary regulations, the use of masks will be mandatory to access the premises and must be maintained throughout the visit, in addition to respecting the interpersonal safety distance between clients and workers, as well as respecting signage, with some of the walkways being made one-way only. The maximum capacity of the garden will be 300 people and tour guide groups will be limited to a maximum of 25 people.

Councilor Alicia Vanoostende noted that "effort is needed to support the revival of the tourism sector on the island and in the Canary Islands and the Acclimatization Garden of La Orotava is one of the most attractive settings in Tenerife, being visited each year by some 250,000 people, which makes this botanical gem a first-rate tourist attraction. She adds that "the reopening will expand the leisure offer for the arrival of tourism, both foreign and local."

The Government of the Canary Islands has allocated 500,000 euros to improve and expand the Botanical Garden with a new area of ​​40,000 square meters, in addition to the existing 20,000 square meters, and to start cultivating the new species of tropical and subtropical plants.
