What a great place! If you are in Bogota and have a limited time here, you should defiantly go see this park. Lots to see! There are amazing flowers, trees and herbs. Takes a couple hours to walk through the whole place but it's worth it!

Amazing place for 'Tree-huggers'. Lots of different tree's and plants. Don't miss the swamp part inside including Turtles! Nice, relaxed and well taken garden! Its a 2-3 hour walk to see everything.

There is nothing to dislike about the gardens. They far exceeded my expectations. Señor Mutis was a remarkable person, a profound intellect.

Beautiful botanical park to spend a couple of hours in Bogota. You can stroll a couple of hours and enjoy a very well presented collection of botanical plants and trees. Especially a good choice when museums are closed.

Situated near the airport, the Botanical Garden is a nice place to go if you enjoy gardens and get out of the city. Not much actually there but it was a nice way to spend a couple of hours. There is a small cafe on property and many vendors outside selling hot dogs and hamburgers. Entrance was crazy cheap -... More

These botanical gardens were a lovely respite from the hustle and bustle of the city. The diversity of the plant life seen there was remarkable. I particularly enjoyed the displays of orchids and cacti. The food in the restaurant was very enjoyable and quite inexpensive. It was a thoroughly enjoyable experience.

I have to say I'm a big fan of botanical gardens, and this one didn't disappoint. You can get lost there for hours. The selection of plants is amazing, and the organization by ecosystem a great idea. Weekday mornings are quiet.

I went there with my girlfriend to see all the many plants. Colombia is one of the most diverse countries in the world, occupying just 0.22 percent of the Earth's surface yet home to almost 10 percent of known species, fauna and flora. The place is very peaceful. Go there in a sunny day to take a nap near some... More
