Across the highway from ExpoCuba is this 600-hectare botanical garden. The Pabellones de Exposición (1987), near the entry gate, is a series of greenhouses with cacti and tropicals, while 2km beyond is the garden's highlight, the tranquil Japanese Garden (1992). Nearby is the celebrated Restaurante el Bambú, where a vegetarian buffet is served (a rare treat in Cuba).

The tractor train ride around the park departs four times a day and costs CUC$3, gardens admission included. Parking costs CUC$2.
