It is a true privilege, a luxury for the senses,to perceive all the wonders of nature offered at the ‘Jardín Botánico de Cali’ (Cali’s Botanical Garden). Mainly, the garden is a tropical dry forest with an exceptional climate, that hosts fauna and flora not found anywhere else and that, in addition, is at a high risk of extinction. This is a magical place, with unparalleled biodiversity, where you can enjoy pure air; children, youngsters and adults can learn to appreciate natural resources and interact with the ecosystem. Theser is possible thanks to guided tours (you can also do the tour on your own).
This natural refuge covers an area of 11.8 hectares. It has been regenerated for many years by the ‘Fundación Jardín Botánico de Cali’ to fulfill the purposes of strengthening ecological tourism, providing recreational spaces with a different and enriching approach in favor of the culture and well-being of the city and the public in general, as well as promoting research, education and conservation of the area. This institution even has a nursery that tends for the conservation of native species.
