Jardin Etnobotanico de Oaxaca - City Park Oaxaca - Mexico

The botanical garden in Oaxaca is not only for plant lovers. It is also a great place to learn about culture and traditional medicine as well. The garden is an impressive collection of 9,500 cacti and other plants that are native to Oaxaca, covering 450 species. Located in the Santo Domingo temple's backyard, the garden is a pleasant place for a relaxing walk, away from the city streets. Visits are only possible as guided tours, which last 1.5-2 hours. For those with a decent level of Spanish, tours are more frequent, half the price but also half as long (1 hr) as the English tours which are only three times a week (Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays at 11 a.m., $10).
