Overall I found my time at the garden peaceful but a bit boring. There is significant construction so there were no greenhouses to visit and I found the maps somewhat confusing. I kept stumbling upon locked buildings on accident that were only for scientists. I...More

If you like birds, this is one of the better places in bogota to see them. There are lots of flower 🌺 patches that attract various hummingbird critters. Also spectacular plant 🌱 life.

This green space is nice, a bit close to the airport area. For getting there from the nacional museum the taxi costs 11.000cop and the entrance 2.700cop . The space seems to be not so well curated.

This is a lovely and quite place! I try to visit it almost every weekend. You can see different birds (including hummingbirds). You are not allowed to introduce food in the park, so you cannot make picnics. I think that's why is soooo clean.

I do not think the Botanic garden allows "pets" - then again, they might charge you a fee if they allow you to bring it in. I am assuming it is not a "service" animal (assisting a person with limited sight)
