Exploring the Palermo neighbourhood on a walk we dropped into this lovely green oasis of picturesque trees, cacti, scrubs, ponds. Lots of photo opportunities, lots of shade. But also lots of mosquitos especially on a day like ours when there had been a tropical downpour on the previous evening, and puddles of water were everywhere. So bring repellent! The park... More

No cost for admission. The gardens and many unusual and beautiful statues are a must-see, in my opinion. This is a perfect place to stroll in dense shade on a hot day.

This is a beautiful and beautifully-kept garden through which you can wander as you'd like, or sit on a bench and enjoy the day. Don't expect lots of flowers, at least not at the height of summer (late January) when we were there. You will instead see many trees, some statues, and some artificial ponds, all arranged by continent. A... More

A small area of botanical gardens make a nice 'walk through' but not much else. Glass houses were locked. Much looked rather run down. The butterfly gardens were also locked, though we did see a few lovely butterflies flying around. There is a map which you can ask for from the Information station, but I had to specifically ask for... More

I escaped from the heat into the cool tranquility of these gardens. They are fairly well maintained with beautiful statues and a pretty fountain. Note I think it's closed on Mondays.

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

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.
