Trying to gather info on visiting the Botanical Gardens on my port day in PV. Any advice on do it yourself transport? How difficult to catch the bus, distance / cost etc, or is a taxi much more convenient? One bus ride within walking distance from the pier would be great, probably not wanting to have to transfer or take multiple buses. Would not want to linger too long & have a hard time getting transport back to the ship. Thinking of spending at least a few hours there, gardening & exotic plants a big interest for us - then having lunch at the restaurant. Any feedback from past visitors much appreciated. There is no shore excursion for this offered from my cruise line. Plus if we could do this inexpensively on our own, & have more freedom from being part of a group tour - so much the better.
