Nice way to spend a couple hours.

The Jardin Botanico is a beautiful little garden tucked into the Buenos Aires city scape. It's free to walk through and easy to get to on the Metro.

Very small garden. peaceful, but not necessarily worth it. All the green houses were closed as it seems that things are only open on a weekend.

How could walking through Botanical Gardens be anything else? There are so many areas that will impress you with their colorful and well-manicured foliage. This is a wonderful place to spend some quiet time when you are over in the Palermo section of the city. Places like this remind you, of the best Mother Nature has to offer.

We visit botanic gardens around the world when we travel and this was one of the poorest - wouldn't bother really much more to see in BA than come here. We were disappointed.

If you're in the area, it's lovely to take a walk through these tranquil gardens, established 1902. Highlights are the historic, prize-winning winter garden (unfortunately locked) and the red-brick administration building, which often hosts exhibitions on the ground-floor. Open Tuesday - Sunday, but avoid it after heavy rain, as some areas get flooded.

On the positive side it is free to enter and it offers the opportunity for some peace and tranquility away from the city. However, it is not particulary big and there is not a lot of information (the only signs are in Spanish). If you are in the area though you may as well go in to take a break.

Although it is located between two main traffic arteries, the botanic gardens offer a shady green space to get away from the noise and busyness of the city. Large stone sculptures are nestled among the labeled trees and plants. Numerous greenhouses are filled with plants from various parts of the world. The butterfly garden drew me in ~ it was... More

This is a nice pleasant green oasis in he city next to the zoo. There.are some nice statues. As botanic garden go,I didn't think all that much of it. Yes, the trees are labeled with the botanic names, but there is no discussion of the flora of Argentina/Patgonia. Didnt think it was particularly pretty or well kept. Easy to skip.

Staying in Palermo

Neighborhood Profile
Palermo
Best known as the largest neighborhood in Buenos Aires, Palermo is divided into different quarters, each with its own unique identity. The high-end quarter is Palermo Chico, characterized by magnificent mansions, regal avenues, and exclusive apartment buildings, and home to the Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires (MALBA), a favorite amongst locals. The largest park in the city, the Bosques de Palermo, is Palermo's most famous landmark and a popular destination for nature walks, picnics, rollerblading, and cycling. The scene becomes much trendier in Palermo Soho, a hip area known for its cool cafés and unique design stores, filled with shoppers on weekends; and Palermo Hollywood, renowned for the numerous restaurants, bars and nightclubs, which make it the preferred spot for nights out and special occasions.
