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.

  • A place that there is that visit if is goes to the Quindio, an experience different and beautiful, know more about the nature, is best go when do Sun, because there are many pieces in the tour that this full of mud and if rains is more difficult continue. The most cute Butterfly Park can see them, touch them and know more about them is great. Preferred. Things by improving: price. To my way of looking at it is expensive.
