  • We spent a couple of hours here and were underwhelmed. It was mid-February and very few flowers were in bloom. Apparently there are some monkeys here but the only animals we saw were a couple of exoti...  more »

  • 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.
  • Good place to get in touch with nature

  • Nice, relaxing, educational but you fslta more and better customer service, guided tours of truth and news to display.

  • It was a nice experience to be in contact with nature, I did not see so many poisonous frogs, I thought that more variety of fish, snakes, more birds would have, but no, if you want to clear the mind it is good place to walk
