We made the journey by taxi with a one year old. Big gardens. The entry fee was very cheap free for under 5s and over 60s. Very attentive staff . There is a good green house with desert plants leading to jungle ones and a good quantity of bromeliads. Most of these plants were classified by Jose Celestino Mutis four... More

We had visited the museums that we wanted to especially see in Bogotá, and since it was a Monday, (We would have gone to other museums from our "second list" but all of them were closed.) we decided to spend some time in the Jardín Botánico. Being a work/school day, the garden was almost empty of other visitors. It is... More

A great place to see the colombian flora, lots of beautiful colourful flowers, native trees and if you are lucky a great art exhibition. Bring a sandwich as is not a coffee area in the gardens and I am sure you would spend lost of time there

This 50 acre garden has hundreds of unique plants from both South America and around the world. The picture perfect climate is ideal for a visit anytime of year. Be sure to bring your camera because you will see things here that you will not see in so many other places.

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.
