This garden is a good introduction if looking to visit the different parks and nature reserves of Colombia. Here you can find recreations of the country's most significant ecosystems. You will discover tree ferns, Quindío wax palms (the national tree), the vegetation of páramo and bosque de niebla (cloud forest). Five greenhouses present the ornamental plants and plants that eat each other, and reproduce the environments of Chocó, the Amazon and arid regions.
