Jardin Botanico del Quindio, Calarca

(4.6/5 based on 220+ 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.

  • The truth were surprised the qualification that the garden has on Tripadvisor. It is a short route and not very interesting. The Guide does not have deep knowledge of the subject and is limited to repeat a speech. You can not walk freely and to our surprise the plants have no informative legends. Perhaps the butterfly is interesting, but it should cost no more than 15,000 pesos. Coffee Park ecological tours are much better.

  • The tour is done with an environmental guide, who gives a general explanation about the plants which are located in the Botanical Garden. They have a duration of two hours and a half and it is a pleasant walk in the midst of nature. The butterfly garden is a beautiful place in which different species of butterflies are seen in all its glory and the tour on line tunnel was interesting. Unfortunately access to the bridge for bird watching was restricted
