Quito’s botanical garden, one of the 10 great around the world (The Guardian)

In the very pleasant Parque Carolina, the unsung Jardin Botánico Quito is a lovely place to visit. Its collection includes a wide selection of the plants found in one of the most biodiverse countries on the planet, with a major highlight being the orchid house, which contains a good range of Ecuador’s several thousand varieties. As well as spectacular bromeliads, fuchsias and native fruit trees, there are many butterflies and birds to be seen, including many hummingbird species.
