Reconnect with nature and discover the fauna and flora that this beautiful place houses.
Just 30 minutes from Cartagena is one of the most important ecological attractions in the region, with a living collection of more than 300 plant species from the Colombian Caribbean and one of the few virgin native forests in the region. The Guillermo Piñeres Botanical Garden has several special collections and about 2 km of trails. In the forest a very special water spring sprouts that runs all year round. It is an ideal place to meet and learn about the fauna and flora of the Colombian Caribbean.
The trails, with an approximate length of 2,000 meters, allow you to observe the collections of plants and the native forest. During this fascinating tour you will be able to see cotudo monkeys howling in chorus, squirrels eating seeds, large iguanas running from the sight of visitors and if you are lucky, you can see a ñeque jumping through the garden!
One of the most venerable trees is a Caracolí with approximately 150 years and almost 2m in diameter, a colossal tree that Alexander Von Humboldt marveled at more than two hundred years ago when he visited the Garden! Its “eye of water” forms a stream of crystalline waters known as Matute from which Cartagena supplied its aqueduct until the first decade of the century.
