Botanical Gardens

Orchids, palm trees and turtles in the city!

Medellin’s Jardín Botánico is located next to the Universidad metro stop, and well worth a visit, especially if you are also planning to see the Parque Explora nearby.

It’s free to enter, and the leafy gardens are the perfect spot for a lunchtime picnic. The orchid house is a huge wooden structure that will appeal to anyone interested in modern architecture and design.

Watch out for the turtles and giant iguanas that inhabit the park and roam around freely!
