We were looking for something to do before our evening flight home. This was the perfect place to spend a few hours. It was not crowded, and there are lots of flowers to see, along with about 639269 peacocks that wander the grounds. Love that this is a wildlife rehabilitation center, and all of the animals are rescues. Bonus: they had a spot to hold our luggage while we toured the place!

We spent nearly 4 hours enjoying the green space, birds, and animals of The Flamingo Gardens. Enjoyed the tour around the 60 acres and the reasonably priced food. The orchid exhibit was beautiful too.

It is a very cozy experience, especially to go with the family. They should give more space to the Spanish language. Very nice to feed the Flamingos, I recommend it.

Such an amazing place to visit and it was the perfect ended to our vacation!

Very cool experience that I think everybody should try.
