Las Tunas.- This December 1st the Botanical Garden of Las Tunas, one of the best preserved in Cuba, will reopen its doors with very appropriate options for recreation, after the difficult times we have experienced.

Dianelis González Palmero, head of the Department of Science and Research, assured Tiempo21 that the collective of the installation is in the best conditions to share with its public proposals, not only for recreation, but also for knowledge.

“Among the services are guided visits by specialists and technicians that will allow the enjoyment of natural beauty and learn about issues related to conservation, sustainability, the care and cultivation of ornamental plants and the protection of the environment.”

To this are added other initiatives that will be offered in collaboration with the university and other research centers, with which they are developing studies on the conservation of endemic species, risk management and to pay tribute to reforestation, part of the effort to convert the Garden in a scientific unit and to establish itself as an environmental and sociocultural proposal.

The lake of love, the result of an aquatic plant project, is the novelty that it will now offer its visitors, together with the possibility for families to immortalize in its fascinating landscape, unique moments of the quinceañera celebrations, weddings and the first year of a baby.

No other place in the province like in its 50 hectares to appreciate native and foreign flora species in danger of extinction, floristic collections, more than 150 varieties of palms and its cactus plant with populations of dissimilar textures, colors and shapes achieved thanks  to careful handling.

From this first of December the Botanical Garden of Las Tunas will receive visitors from Tuesday to Sunday from 9 in the morning to 3 in the afternoon.
