So, here's the synopsis: it's a pretty park, great walking paths, very informative, and ITS FREE. Totally clutch, right? The only downside? It's right by the university, and for some reason another, the air is DENSE with pheromones. You catch my drift? We're not talking X-rated action: it's probably PG-13 at worst--but definitely something that makes you go: "Huh. In... More

The garden is a spacious place with beautiful flowers all over, I am not a fan of flower but yet enjoyed pretty much the orchids inside it, would rather to say it is a relaxing place with fresh air, worthwhile to visit!

Much preferred our afternoon here than at Avri park. This was mainly due to the gardens being easier to get to as well as being full of different wildlife! This is a perfect attraction if you'll looking for a relaxing stroll with lots to see an for free! The cafés also seven decent food.

We visited during the Flower fair and it was a wonderful experience. The Jardin was decorated with local flowers by local flower shops and the orquids displays were outstanding. The arts and cratfs fair was worth visiting and shopping.

My stay was during the fiesta de los flores. The garden was packed with people and special exhibits when I visited - nonetheless - it was a fantastic experience. The garden has beautiful areas where one can sit and enjoy the atmosphere. It is simple to reach via the metro.

I visited the Jardin Botanico last Sunday afternoon and it was an afternoon well spent. You can navigate its circumference in fifteen minutes. The train that makes its way through the gardens is for the kids. There is much flora to be admired and also a little fauna. It is a very good environment to relax; find a spot on... More

I went on a Saturday, and there was many people there. I wish I could have more, as there was some areas closed. Variety was missing. But it was a good place to relax, and enjoy nature.

I went to the Jardin botanico with my husband, is a native of Medellin and fellow science nerd. It was romantic and we learned things. The setting is a beautiful and there are many birds and other animals in the park.
