If you ever make the journey to Las Palmas, make sure you save sometime for the Jardin Canario. Situated on the outskirts of the city, you will fine it in an incredible setting. Whichever way you approach, prepare for a dramatic climb, but you do not have to do it all at once. I started at the top, gradually and gently winding my way downwards, admiring the species of plants as I walked along. At the base you will be confronted with a dramatic presentation of native plants and succulents; the walk becomes easier, and you can enjoy the quiet ambiance of this tranquil setting.
