Jardin Botanico De Medellin - Review
Spread across 14 hectares, the Jardin Botanico de Medellin is home to 1,000 species of plants and flowers. The on-ground butterfly house, library, cactus garden and the gorgeous pond- all come together to offer a perfect place to spend a sunny afternoon!
The architectural pieces that you can see around the garden, are the highlight. Don’t forget to click photos at the Orchideorama that consists of a wooden mesh that collects water and provides shade for the garden’s colorful orchids.

Jardin Botanico De Medellin, Medellin Reviews
The exhibits were absolutely amazing but the rest was not anything special. This is best for couples or families with kids. It was difficult to figure out where you were on the map because the signage was not very effective. There was a LOT of vendors, which was interesting but I feel like it was more vendor oriented than actual gardens.
A Paradise in the City. What a beautiful place to walk, relax and take in the sights and sounds. And it is all in the heart of the city of Medellin. The park is free which makes the experience even more wonderful. We saw swans, ducks and at least four enormous iguanas here. The park even has an old converted rail car that has been converted into a snack bar! Spend one or two hours here and you won't regret it.
We visited the garden twice and both times I was left with the impression that this place is permanently under maintenance. I've had the privilege of visiting botanic gardens in different cities and countries and with Colombia's biodiversity, I feel like this place could be something out of this world. Anyhow, maybe I visited during the wrong season and truly hope that's the case. Enjoyed seeing some of the animals that have made this place their home. The store is definitely worth checking out and their restaurant serves a pretty delicious meal. Oh, the small herb and vegetable garden in front of the restaurant was a nice touch!
Free entry. Amazing garden with lots of shade. I saw a giant iguana hanging out with some ducks. You can hear exotic birds in the trees and if youre lucky you can find a turtle. It's like Garden of Eden here. Bamboo trees; orchids; aloe; various palm trees; and so much more. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! There is a cool place there with a unique wooden design for some shade.
Beautiful display of flowers for feria de las flores. Lots of vendors for snacks/drinks and we met an iguana.
