    Small but charming

    Reviewed 19 January 2018

    The botanical garden is rather small but it's really charming. My kids enjoyed walking around and exploring the plants. They particularly liked visiting the greenhouse (which is really pretty) and hiding under the nearby giant ants.This is a personal opinion of a KiddieMundo user.

    Tips

    After visiting the Garden you can take advantage of other activities in the Chapultepec Park. For example, right next to it there is a lake where you can rent paddle boats or you can visit the Anthropology Museum, which is right across the street.
