This place isn't anything special. Of course, for someone who enjoys ecology, this place may have much more value. Usually I can become partially intrigued by nature but this place did nothing for me. At least it's free.

In the middle of a city its always nice to find a quiet spot to relax. The Jardin Botanico is quite small but has an abundance of beautiful trees, plants and animals to enjoy. Its a great place to spend an hour or 2... I even saw a sloth which was a huge highlight!

On the Botanical Garden, you can find the most diverse and beautiful plants. Before or after the tour through the Garden you can eat at the In Situ Restaurant.

Its a nice tranquil place to walk around for a while. Theres a very small lake and various other areas such as a small butterfly enclosure that you can walk around.

Great area to relax, enjoy nature and have a great meal. Highly recommended. Please don't hesitate to visit the restaurant, one of the best treats in the botanical garden can be found in its menu.

This is a must do in Medellin. The paths and scenery are so beautiful and peaceful plus there are many places to eat and vendors of authentic foods. It is especially beautiful in Christmas with all the lights!

I liked tha "orquideorama" (place of orchids) and in general the entire place is safe and organised. It has many different expositions of plants and how they adapt to different climates
