Jardin Botanico, Montevideo
(3.5/5 based on 300+ reviews on the web)
Examine a collection of Uruguayan plant life at Jardin Botanico, about 30 minutes by bus from the center of Montevideo. Despite a lack of quality maintenance, the shabby gardens still warrant a visit if you want to get a taste for typical Uruguayan vegetation. Drop by the museum at the gardens' entrance at Avenue 19 April, which contains plenty of information about plant physiology and an impressive botanical library. Bring a picnic and join the locals for a relaxed afternoon on the gardens' grassy fields. To visit Jardin Botanico on your trip to Montevideo, use our Montevideo vacation route planner.

  • I enjoyed visiting the Botanical Garden, is very beautiful and interesting. There are species of plants from many parts of the world. We saw a garden with various spices and also fruit trees like the tangerine. The greenhouse was not open for visitation. Local residents take advantage of the beautiful space to play sports.

  • Quiet place, very good for walking and observing the vegetation. Very cute. It boasts playground for children and public bathroom.

  • The Botanical Garden of Montevideo is very beautiful and well maintained. Go between September and November. Is a bit far from the city centre, but the access is easy both by car as by bus.
