“Nice quiet place interesting architecture”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

The botanical garden is free to visit. It is nice, quiet and fresh for a relaxing afternoon. However, the garden is relatively small and does not have tons of exotic collections of plants. The orchideorama is a beautiful architectural monument that makes the trip worth it.

“Beautiful park, and it's free too”
Reviewed March 5, 2013 via mobile

I would hiily recommend visiting the Jardin Botanico. It is free and metro-accessible, and a lovely way to spend an afternoon. Great spot for a picnic or just a leisurely stroll.

“Good fun”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

A gem in the center of a big city. Beautiful plants and wildlife everywhere. Bring some wine and cheese and have a picnic, you won't regret it.

“Don't miss out”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

After visiting other botanical gardens around the world (like Kew Gardens in England) this place might not seem that impressive but still for me is a "must visit" while you are in Medellin.
Entrance is free (except if you are visiting a especial exhibition) and have loads of green where you can relax, enjoy reading a good book, have a snack or even a nap.
Is right next to one of the metro station which makes it very accessible and is also near to other few interesting spots like Parque Explora, so go visit!

“free, clean, easy to get to”
Reviewed February 14, 2013

one of the many attractions of Medellin. It's free of charge, meters away from Metro Universidad and well conserved, clean and very interesting. Many plants, flowers kept with lots of love by the gardeners.
