Jardin Botanico del Quindio, Calarca
(4.6/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
Explore and immerse yourself in the lush nature of Jardin Botanico del Quindio. Although clear paths map out the garden, you feel lost among the wild encroaching plant life. See the amazing butterfly farm home to over 1,500 butterflies from 30 different native species but keep still because they may decide to perch on you. The garden also features a bird observatory, a rock museum, an insectarium and cable bridges with delightful views. University students volunteer as guides here, so don't expect them to speak perfect English. Private tours can be requested. Add Jardin Botanico del Quindio and other attractions to your Calarca trip itinerary using our Calarca family vacation planner.

  • An incredible place, with Park of hummingbirds that you fly over head. A maze for kids, an incredible Butterfly Garden, an avistadero of birds, and all surrounded by unique vegetation!
