This garden in Mexico is a Surrealist's dream come true

Deep in the Mexican rainforest is a literal 'Garden of Eden'. The 80-acre garden is full of natural waterfalls and concrete surrealist sculptures.

Trails wander through the garden with some structures reaching over four stories tall.

Las Pozas was created by British poet Edward James back in the 1947. He moved to Mexico after growing tired of life in Los Angeles.

In Xilitla, Mexico, he created Las Pozas as a home for exotic animals and a place to grow his orchids. Later on he sold his entire Surrealist art collection to raise money for his garden.

He spent over $5 million to build the masterpiece we see today.

The garden is about a seven hour drive north of Mexico City and is open all year around.
