I am a big botanical garden fan and love both arborteums and themed gardens. The main conservatory area is under a major reconstruction that looks like it may take several months or up to year to finish. The overall gardens needed a major raking pickup of leaf debris. It was not worth the time sitting in traffic to get to this spot.

The botanical garden has a nice architecture with lakes, smaller ares with special plants and three big modern greenhouses. I visited in February and there was not much blooming except for the roses. It is well maintained but there is a lack of information of the plant names. The greenhouses are a bit disappointing.

Went here during our final few hours in Bogota, mainly to escape a bit from the grittiness, congestion, and smog of the city's streets. Easy to access. Good variety of flora. Excellent place for taking long walks away from crowds in a dense city! Inadequate descriptions, even in Spanish, made it a challenge to know what I was observing. But touring the garden with apps like iNaturalist, PictureThis, and even Merlin Bird ID elevates the quality of the garden. I recommend a visit! Note: I only walked the basic grounds of the garden, and for only about one hour.

This place is truly a gem. It has a large variety of faune and flore into one place. I would say even nature non aficionados would love a walk there as it’s peaceful, it has both sun and shade, you can grab a book and coffee and simply enjoy life’s true wonders. During covid you must however be accompanied with a guide for 1h30.

Such a nice place. Relaxing, peaceful and very well cared.
It's not allowed to jog there, it's worth to spend time reading, breathing, doing yoga, getting in touch with yourself or even walking through its beautiful gardens.

Literally p____d it down the day we visited. That couldn’t detract however from the sheer variety and beauty of the fauna and flora on display.
We had a good couple of hours exploring this green space and came away more knowledgeable and appreciative of the experience

Superbly organized and well-kept gardens. Lots of trees from all over Colombia. Very reasonable (low!) cost to enter. Helpful staff on-hand for questions. Waterfalls, lakes, trees, and many birds to enjoy. Small coffee shop near the lads offers a quick food/drink option. Highly recommend a visit here!

As with many places we visit, the botanical Garden is a must.
When we arrived , the many parts of the garden were closed. The houses for reconstruction and the rose gardens for spraying. Info and maps reduced to index card sized paper. English speaking tours not available. A bit of a disappointment .

This is an amazing experience. There is so much to see and the views are beautiful. Guided tours are offered or you can wander around on your own. Take advantage of this gem and go explore the different plants, flowers, ponds, birds, fish, and nature. Tickets are very economical and this is a great place for individuals and families.

Lovely 50 acres garden outside of Bogotá. After a few days in the hectic city this is a great place to come relax. Incredible variety of plants and lots of animals can be seen as well. The lake area helps keep it cool.

One thing is that they could use more information and signage. What I did was download a plant finder app on my phone, and just used that. But really would be nice if there were more signs.
