Matawan, New Jersey

These gardens, directly behind the Museum, (Banco Central) don't be fooled, are accessible from the right side of the museum building and are a good example of Inca construction as well as a lovely respite and view of the city.

Absolutely beautiful and the exotic bird sanctuary is a real treat. Gos ee the birds that the Inca Kings loved.

Indigenous ruins, a garden and a small zoo. Nice 10-15 minute stroll along the river to get there from our place. Walk out the back gate and turn left. The museum and gardens will be over a couple busy streets but there are underpasses to get you there. Just past the Broken Bridge.

On a sunny day, this is wonderful space to roam. You just may see a llama or two grazing on the grass.

The gardens are in the grounds of the Pumapungo Museum, and are certainly worth a look if you plan on going to the museum. Here you will find beautifully landscaped with many native plants and flowers that can be found all over Ecuador. If you don’t get a chance to go to the Amazon when you’re in Ecuador you can still get your animal fix in these gardens because they have toucans, macaws and parrots in cages here. There is also a delicious crepe stall selling made-to-order Belgium crepes.
