  • Super nice place, awesome vibe here. Very chilled and quiet atmosphere. Great to have a long walk or just hang out. Super relaxing and nice views. Great experience and not super crowded
  • A beautiful and peaceful place to go. A place to walk around and relax. You can see big trees and an amazing garden. There are some beautiful areas with some wildlife. The cactus and herb garden was good to see, along with the waterfall area. Take the time to stay there and appreciate the flowers and also nature.
