We took a taxi to get here but it is easily accessible from the metro Universidad station. You will find many Colombian families enjoying themselves here. Food is available and there is a gift shop. You will find a lagoon and small butterfly house. The paths are well laid out and the trees, flowers, and plants are really nice. Our... More

I'm a gardener and have been going to different botanical gardens around the world, and I had high hopes for this place. It unfortunately didn't think it was all it was cracked up to be. Free entry is a plus, but also perhaps why there were few plant labels and little guidance on what you were seeing. To be honest... More

Very nice botanical garden with loads of birds and some iguanas. People come there to have a picnic or a game of lotto. There are a few cafes inside, which looked pretty good.

If you like orchids, this is a great place to see. The immense types of orchids that are displayed in this place, is one of the most beautiful you con see in the world. They are locally grown.

I walked around this garden for a few hours with my boyfriend. They have a really cool butterfly sanctuary and a lot of different plants. The resturant and gift shop are defiantly worth a visit, I would recommend this garden to anyone in the area.

We had spent the morning visiting an orphanage...now everyone wanted to relax and enjoy lunch...we ended up at the Botanical Gardens of Medellin. It was a very beautiful and serene park. We sat by the lake and watched the birds, ducks, turtles, and fish. Very peaceful. Young lovers looking for some quality time alone, an orchid garden, butterfly area, and... More

Next to the University of Antioquia, the garden is large and quiet with beautiful trees and plants. It is very pleasant to spend one hour walking mourned there. I was not expecting that in Medellin. There is a restaurant at the entrance serving casual food, and a very good restaurant inside with very good food in a nice building.

A beautiful place to take a rest and enjoy the birds singing. Butterfly farm is free and quite interesting. Also massive dragon lizards walking around. Nothing much is in English. There is alot to do around this park so maybe have lunch here
