A relaxing place to visit where you may choose your pace. Bring a book to read on the lawn, get some exercise jogging around or take a tour. Its a well priced entrance fee, so pop in to enjoy a short trip or stay for a while. My son has a lot of fun at the creeks to the left of the entrance. It is starting to look a little overgrown -more so than in the past but the plants still looks healthy.
Wonderful and beautiful place to know and see local Flora. Entrance is really cheap, kids get discount and senior citizens has free entrance. You can do the tour by yourself or wait for guide, each guide will make the experience unique and teach you different things about the place. Smoking is forbidden and so is taking flowers or leaves out of the garden. Excelent for family trips, picnics or photo shoots.
It's a great place to relax and spend with your family or couple. They have tours where they guide you through the main attractions such as the different ecosystems in Colombia. There are nice restaurants inside or food carts right outside if you prefer fast food
I've been going to this place since I was a little girl. It has changed for the best. Right now you can see a growing interest for visiting the garden. There are several activities for everyone but in particular for children. Live concerts, conferences, workshop and field trips. You can do bird watching. You can go for picnic, too. The habitats are amazing and well designed. It's a must go for foreigners visiting the city.
Cool place to take a nice walk and enjoy the sights and sounds. A place to enjoy very simple pleasures, no fancy attractions, no stores, no rides, no restaurants, just plain and simple man-made and natural beauty
Bro the nicest place ever... I had so much variety of plants and animals... You can easily spend a whole day in there
Very interesting and honest, great value for the money. I took the hourly tour they offer. Although, all in Spanish, I was about to enjoy my time and learn new things. Although the tour was about the plants, the kids that were in the group were very interested in a foreigner and asked many questions. At the cafe, I accidentally gave too much as payment (bills got stuck together) but they were honest enough to return the extra cash I gave.
The place is beautiful. The only 'bad' thing is that not all the plants are not identified, it will be nice to actually know the names of the plants. There is a bit of construction going on, so I am looking forward to visiting again.
It's an awesome natural place where you can enjoy fresh air in the middle of the city and learn a lot about Colombian nature. You can have a pic- nic, jogging, get married and so on. Very recommended...
Beautiful grounds and interesting spaces where you can learn a lot. I went on a cloudy day in Feb, during their off season and still had a great time.
Very nice place to hang out and relax a bit while enjoying the nature. Great variety of flora to view. Needs some attention in certain areas....
If you want to learn about Colombian botany, there's the perfect place. Actually they ate updating to introduce new species from other parts of Colombia. There you can see some small animals, such as ducks, butterflies, hummingbirds, bugs.
That's a must go! The place is really beautiful and they are building a greenhouse to make it even more interesting.
