Medellin certainly has it together. There seems to be a lot of investment in the right things in this city, and the botanical gardens is one of those things. As soon as we... read more

The gardens aren't anything to write home about except maybe for the few Iguanas wandering around. We went thinking it would be a nice way to escape the heat but didn't end up staying long. If you do decide to make the trip, the Pedro Gomez art museum is only about 1km up the road which helps to make it... More

Medellin certainly has it together. There seems to be a lot of investment in the right things in this city, and the botanical gardens is one of those things. As soon as we entered, there was a city sponsored meditation session, with at least 100 people chilling, while an instructor led them into some deep relaxation. I mean, how cool... More

It sounds exotic and wonderful...it's not. The butterfly enclosure (which is the size of a bedroom) was the most eventful part of our visit. They have an orchid area...which I was really looking forward to seeing...but they had apparently rented it out to a private party and we couldn't go in. I left with a few pictures of butterflies and... More

This botanical garden was limited in the number of displays, but we still enjoyed spending time here. It is relaxing and offers a nice place to walk and picnic. One area is planted with numerous tropical plants and trees. There is also a beautiful display of cactus plants that has many different varieties. If you walk around the pond, you... More

The only problem with El Jardin is that sometimes parts are closed for special events or maintenance and although the web site says to check for this, they never actually post any up to date information...nevertheless it's well worth a visit to enjoy all the green spaces and iguanas!

Compared to US Botanical Gardens, this was more like a very, very nice city park. People having picnics, birthday parties, and on dates enjoying the surroundings. There are not many exhibits or organized displays of plant life. The butterfly house was cute, but small, only about 5-6 types of butterflies, but still fun.

Lovely to stroll in this park and watch the orchids and the lovely plants and wildlife. To get away from the madding crowd and rest under the shade of the trees and have ice cream was delightful.

Nice walks through a variety of trees and vegetation. Particularly enjoyed lunch in the restaurant and had one of the most delicious filet mignon steaks I have ever eaten. NIce gift shop as well.
