I took my family to Jardin Botanico de Medellin last year and we walked around and spoke about the history of the location. And how much it has changed. But the one great thing they have there is a butterfly house. Colombia has some of the largest verieties of butterflies in the world, and the largest also. Then one big... More

This is a park for the people. A lively place for a walk, and a wander. This park is free and although it may be limited on the educational side as far as botanical gardens of the world, it is a lovely well cared for park and garden.

We went to the botanical gardens after hearing they were pretty average, and I have to say... Our friends were right. It feels like you are in a park not a botanical garden. The pond had some sucks, turtles and fish. We found one squirel and a iguana in a tree but apart from that there is a orchid garden... More

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.
