“A Lovely Sunday Afterrnoon”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2014

I visited the Jardin Botanico last Sunday afternoon and it was an afternoon well spent. You can navigate its circumference in fifteen minutes. The train that makes its way through the gardens is for the kids. There is much flora to be admired and also a little fauna. It is a very good environment to relax; find a spot on the well manicured grass and lie back and meditate.

“It was OK”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2014

I went on a Saturday, and there was many people there. I wish I could have more, as there was some areas closed. Variety was missing. But it was a good place to relax, and enjoy nature.

“Good for science nerds, nature lovers, and romance”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2014

I went to the Jardin botanico with my husband, is a native of Medellin and fellow science nerd. It was romantic and we learned things. The setting is a beautiful and there are many birds and other animals in the park.

“Great way to take a break from the city”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2014

Very pretty gardens with some interesting plants and supporting architecture. Nice for an hour or two, or could be great place to take a picnic lunch.

“Nice architecture, trees, flowers, and a quiet walk around”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2014

There are a lot of nice walk paths, where you can see a wide variety of flowers, plants and trees. By the time I was there, they had orchids which were very nice!
