Directions to Herrera Gardens & Conservation Project
Herrera Gardens & Conservation Project is located near Puerto Jimenez on over 250 acres of rich and diverse land. Originally a reforestation project the mission has morphed into something different. The property is divided into different gardens where plants are grown for specific uses. One garden has medicinal plants, another boasts beautiful halconias, another has fruit trees and so on. All the gardens are connected by a series of trails where guest routinely see exotic animals such as cusingas, ocelots, raccoons, squirrel monkeys, capuchins, caymans, boas, macaws and anteaters among others. Because of the different wildlife found on the property as well as the new plantings this reforestation project has now turned into a tourist attraction that uses entrance and tour fees as well as the sale of goods made from the exotic seeds found on the property to help keep the land pristine and open to those who would like to explore it.
