Statue Garden

Amazing Garden on Colombian-Ecuadorian Border
by Omershlez about 6 years ago

As you pass the border from Colombia to Ecuador, you arrive in Tulcan, which is the first town after the border. There is nothing much to do there, but there is a cemetery which has an awesome Edward Scissorhands-like garden which is free to get in to. You get there from the Central Station of Tulcan by taking a taxi. It costs 1 dollar each way. You ask to get to the cemetery and it's there!
