UPR Botanical Garden Map

The garden is currently not open to the public

A visit to the University of Puerto Rico (UPR) Botanical Garden (Jardi­n Botanico) is an enjoyable way to spend a couple of hours. Here’s a map to help guide you through the gardens. Note- 2014- they now have a few maps posted around the garden. UPR Garden Map We’ve noticed that a number of our readers have been searching for a map of the gardens. Unfortunately, for visitors planning a trip to Puerto Rico, there isn’t a lot of information about the Botanical Garden available on the internet. We’re trying to remedy that. We wrote an article about the gardens back in February. Armed with that article and this map, you should now be ready for your visit to the gardens. Please note that this is a research garden and there are lots of buildings around the perimeter of the garden that I didn’t include when I drew the map. It was getting to be too much detail. Besides, you’re not going to look at buildings, right? 🙂 Just remember to bring some bottled water with you, especially if you plan to go into the Sculpture Garden. There’s not a lot of shade in that part!

We are in the process of updating the maps we use on our web site. While we're working on that, you can click on the GPS coordinates below to view the location on Google Maps ...

It is not the easiest. From our bus article: "To University of Puerto Rico Botanical Garden- from Old San Juan — take ME to Sagrado Corazon, and then the Tren Urbano to the Cupey station, and then walk north along Route 3 to the garden" http://www.puertoricodaytrips.com/san-juan-bus-routes/
