“Peaceful area for the rest”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2015 NEW

Very nice botanical garden with loads of birds and some iguanas. People come there to have a picnic or a game of lotto. There are a few cafes inside, which looked pretty good.

If you like orchids, this is a great place to see. The immense types of orchids that are displayed in this place, is one of the most beautiful you con see in the world. They are locally grown.

“Beautiful plants”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2015

I walked around this garden for a few hours with my boyfriend. They have a really cool butterfly sanctuary and a lot of different plants. The resturant and gift shop are defiantly worth a visit, I would recommend this garden to anyone in the area.

“Country tranquility in the city of Medellin”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2015

We had spent the morning visiting an orphanage...now everyone wanted to relax and enjoy lunch...we ended up at the Botanical Gardens of Medellin.

It was a very beautiful and serene park. We sat by the lake and watched the birds, ducks, turtles, and fish. Very peaceful.

Young lovers looking for some quality time alone, an orchid garden, butterfly area, and a couple of places to eat at.

We ate at the restaurant in the Garden. Excellent food, great service, and wonderful ambiance.

Looking forward to returning here during our next visit to Medellin.

Buen Viaje,
Panama Vagabond

“a very relaxing and green garden”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2015

Next to the University of Antioquia, the garden is large and quiet with beautiful trees and plants. It is very pleasant to spend one hour walking mourned there. I was not expecting that in Medellin.

There is a restaurant at the entrance serving casual food, and a very good restaurant inside with very good food in a nice building.
