JARDIN BOTANICO DR. ALFREDO BARRERA MARIN


Av. Centenario Km 5.5, AP 424, Chetumal, México - Jardin Botanico Dr. Alfredo Barrera Marin Map

This garden was established in 1982 and is one of the largest Botanical Gardens in Mexico.

It’s the last patch of conserved forest between Cancun and Playa del Carmen, with collections of cactaceae, bromeliaceae, orquideaceae, ferns, fruits, ornamentals, palms and medicinal plants representative for Yucatan Peninsula. A trail of about 4 km leads through representative natural forest formations and along a traditional Maya house and "chicle" camp with a Mayan Arqueological Site.

One of the main objectives is to conserve and propagate in threat species of plants from the region, education, and maintain the Mayan Culture and knowledge about how they use natural resources.
