Two kilometers south of the Puerto Morelos turnoff is a 60-hectare nature reserve with nearly 3km of trails. The garden has sections dedicated to epiphytes (orchids and bromeliads), palms, ferns, succulents (cacti and their relatives) and plants used in traditional Maya medicine. The preserve also holds a large animal population, including the only coastal troops of spider monkeys left in the region.
