  • This is a super place to visit - an amazing collection of cacti, great views and a very good cafe. There are two lots of toilet facilities. Easy to spend an hour or two. Cheap entrance fee.

  • Truly fascinating place, I really enjoyed looking around at so many varieties of cactus. Most of which you have most likely never seen before. I also recommend if visiting here to try the cactus burger, although unfortunately it wasn't to my tastes, I'm glad I tried it just for the experience. Felt like it made the whole experience more memorable. Go visit and see if it's to your taste buds! 😋 Highly recommend.
  • This place is well worth a visit either independently or as a part of an accompanied tour. It is a colourful oasis set within a lava rock depression. The different shapes and sizes of the cacti are amazing. There are also pools with fish in them and there are some huge volcanic formations used as a backdrop. Facilities include a cafe and toilets. It's a great place to visit for an hour or so.
