On our way to Bolivar Park we decided to stop off here first and we were not disappointed. The entry was extremely cheap especially when you are used to US prices and the park was much larger than anticipated. You could spend the whole afternoon exploring and relaxing at the park.

I spent an afternoon at the Jardin Botanico. They suggest you take a circular route around the park and then visit the center. This is what we did. I'd recommend allowing 2 hours to visit the park. During my visit there were a lot of roses of all colors, pink, red, fusia, and yellow. Also, make sure to visit the... More

A bit removed from the downtown area (actually closer to the airport, so if you have a few hours to kill on a layover this would be a nice relaxing excursion), this botanical garden is HUGE with many species from the different biospheres of Colombia. Each specimen is painstakingly labeled, much to the delight of any taxonomical freak. Staff is... More

Those of us who like nature should definitely visit this garden. It is huge ,and it feels like heaven to walk among so much green in a big city like Bogotá. Bring your camera and be ready to register it when you get in.

This garden has a few very beautiful views. I have visited other Botanical Gardens and some are nicer, but this is a nice afternoon visit. It was clean, not crowded at all, and safe.

The layout of this garden was a bit strange and hard to follow. Perhaps it was under some construction while we were there. Either way, we stopped by on the way to the airport and it was definitely worth the visit. There were many different kids of flowers surrounding the property, all in fantastic condition. There was also an inside... More

This is like a gathering of all the amazonian tropical exotic plants in a single place. You wouldnt know how thrilling plants can be as there are plants youve never heard of nor imagined in your life

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!
