Thought that this garden was super. Huge variety of plants trees and even humming birds. Some of the interpretation notices swing round and are in both English and Spanish. Hot houses quite good, particularly liked the cacti house. Cafe very well appointed and reasonable, good breakfast. Taxi from Candela ria was 12,000 even though the meter read 15,000.

I saw many good comments from this garden but it wasn't the best experience. It needs more signs to let the visitors know where we're able or not to transit. This is mentioned because we entered a place where none told us is not for visitors. It was supposed to have 7 greenhouse but I didn't saw any. Also we... More

They have quite a few of the impressively high "palma de cera " normally to be seen only in the Valle del Cocora , far... More

Fantastic and huge garden with an astonishing amount of plants and flowers from Colombia. Don't miss the greenhouse with its several climatic sections, learning about the incredible biodiversity of this beautiful country. Orchids are the top jewels!

you really are going to love this one. I spent about 3 hours wandering around here. It is just the right size; not too large, not too small.

Reminiscent of the NY Botanical Garden in the sense of a positive oasis in the middle of urban sprawl. Beautiful greenhouse filled with tropical plants that us Zone 7 people in the Northeast can only have in summer. Stunning Rose Garden, perennial beds, specimen trees. You walk the path that basically makes a circle, and you can cover it all.... More

The gardens are very well kept and an excellent escape from the typical tourist attractions. A glass greenhouse provides a fascinating walk through multiple climates from Amazon jungle to desert. Just outside the greenhouse is the rose garden, with giant blooms in unbelievable bright colors. Absolutely worth the trip.

The Botanical Gardens are worth every hour you spend there. The gardens are well maintained, and are one of the few attractions you will find in Bogota that has English signage. The gardens are very large, so to do them justice plan to spend several hours of easy walking. There is a very nice café on site that offers a... More
