Beautiful green space in the middle of a bustling city

I loved spending a few lazy hours here when touring the city got hectic. The space is fresh and peaceful, and walking around during the afternoon is a treat.

Especially enjoyed the palm and desert collections. Would have loved to see more labels for ID. Pleasant pathways to stroll under beautiful trees and enjoyed sitting by the pond watching birds, iguanas and turtles. The architecture to shade orchids was amazing - wish there had been more orchids under it.

If you want a beautiful place to relax... Definitely this is your place... Is so quite, beautiful and the environment is around you. In the Orquideorama, you'll find most beautiful kinds of orchids and the architecture of the ceiling is really amazing.

While there were not many things in bloom when I visited in early December, I had have a pleasant stroll. The butterfly sanctuary is definitely worth a visit. Go and enjoy!

We visited “Jardin Botanico de Medellin” on a Sunday afternoon and the park was filled with many local families walking the park and having a picnic. This reminded me so much of my younger years that I felt home. We loved the center structure, the flowers special the orchids and the butterfly exposition. It is very clear that this place... More

The Botanic garden is a great way to escape the city for a bit while still being in the centre of the city. They had a wide variety of plants and great paths for strolling. We thought that the highlight was the butterfly sanctuary. It was amazing to be able to get so close to them.

I wouldn't say this is the most impressive botanical gardens I've seen, but I went on a Sunday afternoon and really enjoyed walking under the shade of the trees, and people-watching. This isn't merely a tourist attraction--it seems that mostly locals go here on the weekends for picnics and outdoor birthday parties. It's a great free activity to get a... More

The visit to the Jardin Botanica, Medellin was well worth the visit. It is a large jardin where all kinds of flowers, plants and trees are displayed. It was really amazing.

Very pleasant place to spend a few hours, and really easy to get to: just off the Metro A line. Plants weren't especially well labeled but there were lots of people having a quiet afternoon, and several cafes to grab a nice snack and a drink.
