If you have every been to a nice botanical garden, this one will disappoint you greatly. Really nothing special to see in terms of flowers or plants, badly maintained and very unprofessional staff. When we visited in April, they were under construction, which made it even worst. It is a quiet place to relax, but nothing more. So much better... More

A little bit off the most visited attractions in the huge city of Bogotá, the Botanical Garden offers a chance to escape the noise and frantic activity of the big city and enjoy the greenery of its premises. Mainly native species can be seen.

It has some nice plants, a beautiful rose garden and a few other places worth looking at. But it's located right in the middle of a large busy city and there is quite a bit of construction going on everywhere, so it's a bit noisy.
