The Wonderful Weirdness of Bonaire Botanical Garden

The Bonaire Botanical Garden is one of the weirdest things we’ve ever seen, and we’ve seen some really weird things around the world.

Botanical gardens are often on our list of must-see sights when we’re visiting a new destination. We’ve visited London’s Kew Gardens, the Seychelles National Botanical Gardens, Shanghai Botanical Garden, Canada’s Butchart Gardens, the Royal Botanical Gardens of Sri Lanka, Australia’s Royal Botanic Gardens in Sydney and Melbourne, and the National Botanic Garden of Georgia in Tbilisi, just to name a few.

We’ve toured university gardens, private gardens, library gardens, and urban gardens, along with arboreta, greenhouses, seed vaults, and more.

Not once have we seen the likes of the Bonaire Botanical Garden, with its bone collections, bottled seawater, pet livestock, and, of course, plants.
