55 reviews of Bogotá Botanical Garden

Huge amount of biodiversity

The Bogotá Botanical Garden, founded in 1955 by Colombian scientist Enrique Perez Arbelaez, is a place full of nature and color. Its name honors the scholar Jose Celestino Mutis, director of the botanical expedition. It is located in the west of Bogota, where he promoted and engaged in conservation, environmental education and research of the diversity of the Colombian flora, including the savannah of Bogota.

Within its collection you'll find a huge amount of diversity: Andean forest, oak forest, cloud forest, coniferous zone, criptogamium (plants that grow flowers), herbs, a rose garden and greenhouses. Of particular interest is the "systematic", a place where plants are organized by degree of evolution. It has pedestrian and vehicular access, and has a waterfall, laboratories, propagation tunnels, environmental classroom and an auditorium for conferences and concerts. There's a library, restaurant, cafe, children's workshops, and temporary exhibitions of beautiful plants like orchis, roses and bonsai.
