Situated 6km west of La Fe in the direction of Hotel Colony, this is a botanical garden containing more than 80 tree varieties. Bisected by shaded trails and punctuated by a cornucopia of cacti and mangoes, this expansive garden was established by two American botanists, Helen and Harris Jones, in 1902.

The highlight is the aptly named Bamboo Cathedral, an enclosed space surrounded by huge clumps of craning bamboo that only a few strands of sunlight manage to penetrate.
