Botanical Garden Puerto Morelos

Pretty well known as Jardín Botánico. (It’s name in spanish).

The Dr. Alfredo Barrera Marín Botanical Garden is located at the turnoff for Puerto Morelos on Highway 307 at Kilometer 38. The gardens, occupying 65 hectares, represent the only land that has been set aside for conservation on the corridor between Cancún and Tulum. The habitats range from mangrove swamps to semi-evergreen tropical forest. In the tropical heat, the garden is a cool and well-shaded oasis.

Native plants are fostered in the nursery, which has an important mission given the daily deforestation of the surrounding region. There are 3 kilometers (2 miles) of marked trails. Want to see a chicle tree? Visit the garden’s re-creation of a chiclero camp. The gardens contain a Mayan ruin named The Altar that dates to the post-classic period (A.D. 1400). You’ll find local medicinal and culinary herbs identified by their Mayan, Spanish, and Latin names. The park attracts wild creatures. If you’re lucky, you might even spot an agouti, a large rodent that grazes like a rabbit.
