Cute park, nice layout with a very nice staff. I would definitely say the tram ride was our favorite part, it was very informative and gave us a nice look around back end of the park. We did enjoy the park however my wife and I both agreed it's much more gardens than flamingo. Theres many areas where all you see is trees which is fine but when you get to the flamingos you only see a couple and that's it. We thought it would be more like a zoo but we did still enjoy it.

Visited these gardens between leaving the ship and catching a flight home. Was pleasantly surprised by how much we enjoyed the trip. Guide was very good, and there was plenty to see for a couple of hours. Gardens are beautiful and the animals well looked after.

When we visited in February, all services were still available. I hope they will be in the future. We did a guided walking tour with a very enthusiastic and knowledgeable long-time volunteer; the history of the facility and its plants is fascinating. We also did a tram tour that explained areas of the gardens not quite as accessible on foot--and it had a hop-on, hop-off feature that let passengers explore some of the areas farther from the entrance and animals and birds. There are plenty of animal and bird exhibits to entertain and educate children. It's a very good excursion if you are looking for something to do in the area, but perhaps not worth a special trip from a long distance.
