  • Beautiful place that shows you a lot about Ecuador's biodiversity
  • Amazing place to spend a day understading the diversity of Flora and Fauna of Quito
  • This park has great little areas showing some cultural developments of the area, primitive buildings and tools. The orchid garden is amazing.
  • In the middle of Quito is this unique site with an splendid collection of the Ecuadorian Flora which atracts many species of birds. This place would dirve you away from the city. A place you must visit in town.
  • Fantastic and magic place
