This park is a nice get away from the busy city of Medellin. Plenty of spots to have a picnic, read a book, or walk around for a couple of hours. Our group really liked the butterfly exhibit. Free for entry.

A lovely place to read a book or meet with friends. Not your usual botanical gardens but you see a lot of wildlife here. Iguanas are abundant and a butterfly farm is a must see part of the garden. Suitable for families too!

The botanical garden is a great place to have picnics, take pictures, it has great restaurants and cafés, there are two very interesting places: the butterfly house and the "Orchidiarium" or Orquídeorama in Spanish. There's a big lake in the middle and there are docks so that you can sit or watch the ducks as they swim by. Eventually, you... More

Cor' Blimey, what a journey! Went without any expectations and left with nothing but great memories and a beaming smile from cheek to cheek haha. For free, you have the opportunity to see many different flora and fauna, and really engage with some local animals. I was a little disappointed I never spied the Sloth within the foliage, but I...

Nothing very special about this place, just a nice break from busy city. We saw turtles and iguanas.

The Botanic garden of Medellin is free and close from the metro station. It's a very nice walk around, with a little pond and iguanas all around that you can spot very easily. The locals are coming to relax, have dates, have walks with their family, it was very relaxing and good to see some of the typical flora /... More

Nice gardens and the chance of seeing a sloth (We didn't). A pity they can't seem to manage the feral cats which are everywhere. I'm sure the cats are loving all the lizards and birds on offer.

Not was I was expecting of a botanical garden (no explanations, botanical names etc.) but a great spot to walk and hang around. Very crowded on a Sunday but this was part of the fun.

There is no entrance fee to enjoy this green space that is smack dab in the middle of the city and showcases local trees and plants in their natural settings. We enjoyed walking around the park and saw iguanas, turtles, water fowl, plus a variety of colorful birds. The butterfly house was unfortunately closed the day we were there. The... More
