Jardin Botanico del Quindio, Calarca

4.5
#3 of 8 in Parks in Quindio Department
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.

  • I love to visit the garden, the best are the orchids that with him there in fairs and was constantly surrounded by nature

  • Recommendation: Go with comfortable clothes. Since the entire route (which lasts approximately 2 hours) is walking through the forest. The journey is very nice and is fully guided. Many birds are sighted enough of the flora of the region and learn at the same time. It also includes the visit to the butterfly garden, to close with a flourish. For when he went we didn't have the luck of orchids, however the visit was worth a lot.

  • We had little time already in this region before catching the flight and decided to spend some time. I wish I had done it before and with more time. People carrying the garden has been very professional and Yes, the garden is a marvel, plants, flowers and hummingbirds... They fill an indescribable magic. But when one comes to the butterfly, and pose on you, it seems simply an illusion. Don't miss it. It is worth.
