Beautiful but bring bug spray and a hat... the birds WILL poop on you!

The garden was a gorgeous place to walk around (just not on the grass or they'll yell at you) but I got eaten alive by mosquitos so wish I had brought bug spray! Also, a bird... read more

The garden was a gorgeous place to walk around (just not on the grass or they'll yell at you) but I got eaten alive by mosquitos so wish I had brought bug spray! Also, a bird pooped ALL over me (hair, clothes, legs, my entire backpack), and apparently I'm not the only one this happened to. So I suggest wearing... More

After stumbling on the cat (mascotte) sanctuary in 2010 which was a joyful experience, I deliberately sought it out on a brief visit to BA on my way back to Europe from Antarctica, even staying in the locality to make sure I got time to visit. So sad. No cats! They've been "moved out", who knows where, almost certainly exterminated.... More

Well curated and interesting botanic garden. As a bonus, absolutely lovely atmosphere with statues, fountains, shady walkways, huge trees, and beauty all around. Simultaneously one of the best botanic gardens I have been to in Latin America and one of the best public parks. Delightful.

We had hiked all around Palermo during the day and this was our last stop of the day. The gardens were cool and so peaceful. We enjoyed them much more that the Japanese Gardens we had visited a few days earlier.

Jardín Botánico Carlos Thays de la Ciudad Autónoma de Buenos Aires (aka, Buenos Aires Botanical Garden) is a beautiful botanical garden, centrally located in the Palmero barrio of Buenos Aires. Convenient for multiple viewing on a day trip, this garden, Buenos Aires zoo, and the Japanese Garden are all within about four blocks of each other. There are about 5,500... More

Instead of going to the controversial Zoos, why not choose a Botanic Garden just beside one of the Zoos? This was a great choice we made and we could see that locals also prefer the Botanic Garden. It is not a place for picnic because you can't go into the grass area. Ideal to walk along the whole garden admiring... More

Great and free attraction - place to cool down in the shade after some time walking in the heat. Love the size and amount of green space, lots of plants from all different continents - worth a quick visit too if you're going/coming from Palermo and it's free!

Personally, I enjoyed the rose garden more. However, if you are in the area, it is worth stopping in for 30 minutes.

In the very middle of Palemo, this big park offers interesting buildings and sculptures,secluded areas where you can sit down for a reading, a butterfly corner and of course a collection of trees from all around the world including some interesting examples of cactus. The perfect place to enjoy a quiet Sunday morning.

Neighbourhood Profile
Palermo
Best known as the largest neighbourhood in Buenos Aires, Palermo is divided into different quarters, each with its own unique identity. The high-end quarter is Palermo Chico, characterized by magnificent mansions, regal avenues, and exclusive apartment buildings, and home to the Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires (MALBA), a favourite amongst locals. The largest park in the city, the Bosques de Palermo, is Palermo's most famous landmark and a popular destination for nature walks, picnics, rollerblading, and cycling. The scene becomes much trendier in Palermo Soho, a hip area known for its cool cafés and unique design stores, filled with shoppers on weekends; and Palermo Hollywood, renowned for the numerous restaurants, bars and nightclubs, which make it the preferred spot for nights out and special occasions.
