Jardin Botanico del Quindio, Calarca
(4.6/5 based on 190+ 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.

  • It is a very good place to visit and if you additionally have the fortune that their guide is Carlos much better since it is passionate about his work for what he enjoys doing and transmits it to its visitors, very good eco-tour but the best the butterfly and the scale of the new path of the line model. Interesting visit

  • If you like to walk through the Woods, breathing fresh air and end the tour in a butterfly garden, don't miss out on this site. You should wear comfortable clothing and drink to hydrate, you're lucky the butterflies perch on you and you can take is a cute photo!

  • Site indispensable and very educational if we visited the coffee. We had a very good guide Stacy who did the superamena visit and creating a great ecological awareness. A private place very well organized and very nice. Entry 20 thousand Colombian pesos that are around €6.5 to change.
