Finca la Isla Botanical Garden (Jardín Botánico Finca La Isla)

Finca la Isla Botanical Garden (Jardín Botánico Finca La Isla) Review

At the Finca la Isla Botanical Garden, you can explore a working tropical-fruit, spice, and ornamental-plant farm. Sloths abound, and you might see a few poison dart frogs. A $10 guided tour lasts two hours—there is a three-person minimum, and tours must be reserved in advance—and includes admission and a glass of the farm's homemade fruit juice. You get the fruit juice if you wander around on your own, too—a $1 self-guided-tour book is available in English, Spanish, French, and German. Watch the demonstration showing how cacao beans are turned into chocolate, and sample some of the product at the end of the tour.
