Botanical Garden of Guayaquil Reviews
Disappointing experience. In theory, a dry forest with orchids, birds, animals. Place seems semi-abandoned; saw two or three live butterflies, a single hummingbird that was looking for clean water..... more »
If you have some extra time it might be worth a visit. A really nice botanical garden that has lots to see. more »
Not so special, but relaxing to go there if you stay for a longer time in Guayaquil. Wander around, go to see how they contain butterfly species. Disliked the animals locked up in their cages. Not a lot of space, loosing their feathers because of being with too much in a small space. It was 1.5 or 3 dollars entrance I think, could be less but not more. Walk around for an hour and a half, two hours at least.
The botanical garden hosts a huge variety or orchids yet none of them were blossoming when i visited in January. The park is extensive and hosts alot of really cuty talking parrots and tiny monkeys. As you go round you bypass the whole tropical jungle represented here. Unfortunately the guides do not speak any English but be sure to look around for the swing at the end of the route.
