“We hoped for better”

Botanical Garden of Guayaquil
Ranked #25 of 145 things to do in Guayaquil
Attraction details
Reviewed 12 August 2017 via mobile

We had hopes for seeing some orchids in bloom in their Orchidarium. It was a small enclosure with two orchids in bloom. The bird and monkey enclosures were sad. And labels on the plants were mostly missing, or worn out to be unreadable.
Probably had better times, years ago. One positive thing was they had a map in English.

My friends and I visited the “jardín botánico”, it’s located in Guayaquil. This site has diversity of plants and animals such as monkeys, turkeys, turtles and others animals, also it has a museum about the butterfly, The cost was $2, This garden has a canopy and areas where you can make a picnic, the experience was very good, the guide was patient and take ours photographic. My friends and I could see that this place is very nice but the people doesn`t know it because we were the unique visitors. If you want to pass a very good time in the “jardín botánico”, you must take your owm snacks because in that place don’t sell nothing.

Take a breather and relax for a bit in the gardens. Very nice place to take a leisurely stroll or just sit and watch people. A very good variety of trees and flowers.

This garden is one of the favorite places for people who love the tranquility of nature and the singing of birds. This incredible place is one of the most beautiful that the city of Guayaquil has l, because it has 5 hectares of vegetation. I knew this place when I was at school and they took us to walk through it and give our opinion about everything that place offers. This garden has several stages:

• An exhibition of Amazonian animals;
• A collection of butterflies and fossil remains in the auditorium,
• The opportunity to buy snacks in the bar, next to a panoramic viewpoint;
• Enjoy the area of bonsai, orchid, medicinal plants, poultry
• Perform the traditional "Cable Command".

The prices are:
• Adults $ 3
• Children $ 1.5
• 3rd age $ 1.5
• Students $ 1.5

This place has parking and security guards.
