“Amazing place to visit”
Reviewed 5 May 2014

This is an Amazing place to visit, when you go there, it sits down and surrounded by trees and you do not even know or feel like you are in a huge city like Bogota of 8 mil persons. They have so many plants and greenhouses, so much to see, it is a wonderful place to visit, worthwhile and a must see.

“Nice to see the fauna”
Reviewed 2 April 2014

It is nice to see the flora and fauna of Colombia. I went with my spanish class, and since I'm not that interested in plants and stuff, I didn't find this too interesting. Our guide was also speaking in spanish, so that complicated some things for me. Although I'm glad I went.

Nice walk. Not sure if there is an English tour but I tried to follow along to the best of my ability to the Spanish guide.
A nice way to spend an afternoon if you don't get rained out. Also, very affordable.
Butterfly conservatory was closed when I went though.

“Dont be disaappointed”
Reviewed 17 February 2014

The Botanical garden was nice but with all the vegetation in Colombia and it being the source of all roses shipped to US I was expecting more. The best part of the Garden was the enclosed tropical garden and Orchids. Roses were ordinary and I have seen better elsewhere. 60 and over are free to enter.

“Be sure to visit the butterfly garaden”
Reviewed 9 February 2014

If you have extra time in Bogota, this is a lovely spot to visit. The plant and flower displays are well marked. Don't miss the Butterfly house! Nice bathrooms are available too.
