I looked forward to visiting the gardens and enjoyed the special exhibits on view, however, the gardens have not been well maintained. It has obviously seen better times.

Jardín Borda is a beautiful place to step out of the crowdy streets in downtowns Cuernavaca. Go there and have a walk through the gardens or visit some of the cultural activities
