Jardin is a lovely colonial town that starts becoming famous among the traveler community. That being said, you won’t meet lots of foreigners, especially during the low season.

I loved the friendly atmosphere in Jardin. Locals wear cowboys hat and are super welcoming. They sit and talk all day long, seated on colorful chairs in the vast and flowery main square while drinking their coffee. You should take at least 1 hour of your time to do the same.

Although there are some good coffee tours in Jardin, I consider that hikes and waterfalls are the icings on the cake. Short walks around Jardin are easily doable without a guide, and you will be amazed by the trek going to the waterfalls El Salto del Angel and Guacharos. Moreover, there are also a bunch of top-notch outdoor activities like canyoning and horse riding.

Once you’re exhausted because of your epic day, choose among a broad selection of good restaurants and devour a delicious meal. 

As you understand, Jardin deserves a lot more than a quick 2-day stay.

Where to stay in Jardin

Jardin is a small town with different types of accommodations. You will find some little and affordable guesthouses and medium-size hotels. Tut-Tuks are all over the place, so it's not a problem if you're hotel is outside town. Still, the daily-life in Jardin is quite pleasant, so I suggest you picking one not too far away.
