Zarcero Things to Do

  • Topiary

    Zarcero has a marvelous free topiary garden. In 1960, gardener Evangelisto Blanco began to trim and form the bushes here into bizarre shapes. There are arcades, elephants, birds, rabbits, corkscrews, snakes, dancing couples, oxen - even a bull fight. On one side is a very elaborate creche scene.

  • Amazing topiary

    Take a walk in the park and see what one man does with his trimming shears. He turns topiary into odd shapes. Trimming the archway topiary that leads to the church is no easy task. He is amazing!

Zarcero Transportation

  • Drive

    The only way to get around and see everything that you want to see is by driving yourself. The roads are not in great shape and some do not have signs but you can find your way. Rent a 4-wheel drive vehicle at the airport when you arrive.

Zarcero Warnings and Dangers

  • Theft

    We had heard about the problem of theft from unattended cars, so we parked on the street and I went around and took pictures and Bob stayed where he could see the car. He took photos of what he could see from the street, and I walk into the park to take more photos.

Zarcero What to Pack

  • Map or GPS

    Pack light and carry a lot of water. It does cool off at night up in the mountains and cloud forest so take some long pants and long sleeved shirts. Dress is casual but you will want some comfy walking shoes for sure. I always take my own toilet tissue with me. Take what ever else you will need or want because you won't find much here. Don't forget...
