Garden and Surroundings Tariffs Route


On the land around the garden there are horses, which are from time to time joined by nandues, armadillos, tagus and skunks. For bird lovers this is a paradise. In Uruguay 450 species have been spotted, and around the garden more than 50 species have been seen. Eight varieties of ground orchids have been found on the land and in the garden, and after a summer shower the tiny bulbs create a carpet of flowers. A very old stone wall separates the land from neighbouring fields and a gallery of 200-year old indigenous trees grows along this wall. There is no shortage of walks in the neighbourhood, for example to the fast flowing stream Mataojos (500 mtrs) and the village of Pueblo Eden 4 kms away. There are possibilities for horseback riding and mountain biking. Pan de Azucar and San Carlos are typical Uruguayan cities with the Plaza and the Cathedral. Minas is a beautiful city built on 7 hills with the “Salto del Penitente” waterfalls and Arequito grottos (with bats) nearby. One of the most fashionable bathing resorts is Punta del Este at 40 kms with beautiful beaches, restaurants, shopping malls, museums and nightlife. More information can be obtained at the B&B.
