Visited the Cosmovitral with the kids and husband. Lovely little place in the heart of Toluca central. Various plants and flowers on display lovely to admire however not really a good place for little kids they tend to get a bit bored looking at plants!

Huge building. Stained glass on all the walls. Beautiful one when you first walk in. Lots of plants with lots of color. Only 10 pecos to get in. Don't miss it.

Beautiful, creative and colorful artwork. Amazing to know that an old market was renovated with such beauty. You can walk around and enjoy a variety of botanical offerings, water fountains and light.

In 2014 President Obama visited the Cosmovitral, and you can now take a selfie next to his image. The Cosmovitral has long been a peaceful respite in downtown Toluca, and at 10 pesos it can't be beat for tourist value. Venus flytraps are for sale...More

We always use the buses as feel they are safer than some cabs. But if you don't want to go to Toluca (where Cosmovitral is located) by bus, your only option would be a cab and it will be pretty expensive. Take a bus from... More
