  • The visit has been worth it. Bantu hotel had us Luis (304-209 9550) recommended as a safe taxi and it was a good recommendation. He went with us to Turbaco and showed on the back and also on the other way back even the environment Cartagena us. We have ordered him back immediately for the next day to look at the Avario Nacional. He has also accompanied us all the way and on lots of stuff drawn our attention, which we had - not otherwise seen also on the small, black and yellow poison dart frog.

  • A beautiful garden. It is wonderful to walk in the shade of the trees. Nice are the small poisonous frogs. It is difficult to reach by public transport, but that is an experience in itself. See the website of the garden for the description of the itinerary.

  • It is one of the places where nature is bountiful and makes this garden a beautiful place full of green and cute colors due to the proliferation of multicolored vegetation as its flora and fauna its millenarian trees its crystalline water sources actually is very comforting and always repeat this plan.

  • There's a Coca tree, if you wonder where cocaine from..
  • This garden is not well publicized or easy to find. It is located about 15 km but it seemed more like 30 or 40 km south of Cartagena by going through busy container traffic to the port of Cartagena. Getting there is probably best done by taxi. I paid $90 US for a taxi that would take me and wait a two or three hours for me to walk around. There are no easy-to-find bus routes. I paid 15,000 pesos, about $7.50 US, for the entrance fee. I went on a Saturday and was almost the only person on the grounds which must be over 300 or 400 wooded acres. There were many of the common tropical shrubs and groudcovers too.They had no handout or maps but the trails have signs with maps marked with "you are here" on each map so navigating the place is quite easy. I didn't find any trash like bottles or candy wrappers laying about so it is kept very clean by Latin American standards. My biggest problem is none of the trees are marked as to species with the local name and the scientific name. Absolutely none. I had hoped to learn a few more tropical species. I recognized the ones I knew but not much new was learned. It was however a peaceful pleasure walk.There is a small cantina where you can get cold drinks. It is at the far end of the park so you may want to carry water bottles in so you have something to drink as you walk around. The street view photo as of Nov 22, 2014 is wrong, way off. It appears from the satellite image that the location pin is about 3 blocks too far west from the actual site.
  • A nice and quiet place to stay in contact with nature, has very beautiful water fountains. The tour itself is easy and not very long, use insect repellent. The only thing is that it is rather expensive if one is not affiliated with Confenalco.
