Birding trip one morning

This botanical garden provides pathways shaded by beautiful trees. A place where you can walk and admire the vegetation at no cost. It is a peaceful place to get away from the hustle and bustle of the big city of San Juan.

I love going to the Jardín on Sundays, sometimes just to take a walk surrounded by nature, sometimes to trek or jog, and other times to have a nice potluck-picnic with family and friends. It is peaceful and beautiful. I always leave feeling I should go there more often.

If you admire the natural plants, butterflies are so beautiful. Make you walk and take incredible photos of the natural landscape.
