Garden Nature / Park
A visit to Jardin Botanico de Medellin offers more than just a chance to walk among pleasant plant life.

Sit under the shade of the great wood and steel canopy and admire the gardens encircling each of the structure's stems. Grab your friends and head to the park on a weekend for a picnic lunch among the flowers. You'll be surrounded by plenty of Medellin locals with the same idea. Jardin Botanico de Medellin is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Medellin Edition.
