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!

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
