Really, guys, if you are short on time then I would say "Pass" on this one. The orchid display was what induced me to go, but the orchid was kind of a joke. The butterfly exhibit wasn't much to speak of either. If you want to check it out for yourselves anyway it is easy to do. Just take the... More

Free park in the middle of the city where you can relax and enjoy the nature. You can see a great variety of colombian flora and also some animals like turtles, ducks, butterflies and even reptiles.

I must say that I'm partial to nature and taking walks but this place blew me away. It was a nice way to end my trip to Medellin. The area is vast, the plants are green and varied, and there is even a house of mariposas (butterflies) which is exciting to visit!

It's a small sample of the diversity of flora that has Colombia and the organization of this great city, Medellin. Within the Orquideorama meets the most beautiful orchids that you can imagine. The Botanic Garden Restaurant is a place you should not miss on your visit.

The Botanical park, is a place to see the locals relax and interact, it is safe clean and if not raining worth your visit. We did not see a lot of exotic flora and fauna, but we enjoyed it.

If you come to Medellin and you find a person who you like and you need to find a quiet place to talk, share some thoughts and know better the person, the botanical garden is the perfect place to do it, I suggest you keep some wine, make some sandwichs, a sheet and its that all, you will have a...

Easy to get to by taxi. Nice long walking trail around the park. I didn't notice many exhibits but then again I was engaged in conversation with my date. We ended up having a nice lunch with wine at the In Situ restaurant located inside the park. Good place to spend a couple of hours. Avoid weekends - crowded during... More

Take a walk, breathe in, feed the ducks (with the duck pellets you can buy at the coffee shop/store), serach for water turtles, explore... It's a small garden, well kept, quiet, with a great coffee shop and store. Must, if your in the area or need to chill.

The collection is modest and the signage is inadequate. But it's a pleasant park used by the people of Medellin for all kinds of individual and group activities.
