Garden
Take a stroll though the manicured gardens at Recinto del Pensamiento, admiring the variety of plant and animal life that have made their home here. Walk along the signposted track, up and down the gentle slopes of the eclectic manicured gardens. Stop at the relaxing Japanese-themed garden for a break, accompanied by the light tinkling sound of water flowing through fountains, and ponds filled with koi carp. Snap photos of the feathered residents of the hummingbird garden as they flutter around their feeding points. Head to the visitor center to arrange a tour of the gardens--conducted only in Spanish--to learn about the flora, fauna, and history of the plot. See Recinto del Pensamiento and all Manizales has to offer by arranging your trip with our Manizales vacation trip planner.

  • has no publicity between those who are frequent travellers, however the place is magical, we enjoyed the guide which by the way is an expert on birds and orchids, the chairlift ride is fun and forest of orchids is unique

  • It is a beautiful place, its full of life and vegetation trails tour is something spectacular, climb up the hill where you can one sit and appreciate the arrival of hummingbirds and enjoy a coffee in the region; go through the bonsai garden and stop to rest in the Prairie then enter the butterfly. Excellent weekend plan to go with friends or family in a relaxation plan.

  • Very touristy but it's a beautiful place and an opportunity to see a lot of hummingbirds. The recinto is easily reached by taxi and can visit quickly, it's a good half-day program.

  • Guided tour to foot by 16. 000COP and telesiege 21. 000COP. If it rains it aborts and the money is not returned. Includes a visit to a garden of medicinal plants, orquideorama, butterfly garden and nursery of hummingbirds. Nothing that you can not see in other parts best price or even for free.

  • At the end of the tour was something style, bye, see you. No more options as, now enjoy the landscape, choose a place to think. Everything focuses on the tour, and not what the name promises
