Jacaranda Gardens

Jacaranda gardensA door to our gardensJACARANDA is surrounded by a great variety of wild, ornamental and fruit-bearing plants, from all over Venezuela and part of the world, which have been planted, and nurtured with tender loving care by the hand of its owners.

Germán, "The Gardener", as his wife calls him, has taken pains in combining spaces, variety, utility and aesthetics to give their gardens, with love and passion, all the care to achieve a balance of wild nature, subtle order, and construction, that draws constant praise, admiration and curiosity from all our guests and visitors.

Jardines de JacarandaYou will "stumble" onto several almost natural ponds, created by Germán, where the just right combination of water plants like water lilies, tropical fish, snails, frogs and toads, shade and sunlight results in a pure and perfect fresh water ecosystem for all their inhabitants.
