Arabotanica, Teresopolis
(4.1/5 based on 380+ reviews on the web)
You will smell their heady perfume as you arrive, and, upon entering the first greenhouse, prepare to be amazed by the beauty of the huge array of orchids in beautiful colors and wondrous variety. Three other industrial-sized greenhouses contain seedlings, from which expert horticulturalists create rare, hybrid species. All of the plants are for sale, and prices can reach thousands of dollars. However, Arabotanica is more than just a nursery and runs a series of courses and lectures promoting home cultivation; it is a main point of reference for orchid-enthusiasts the world over.

  • Worth the visit. Has a very pretty Orchid nursery. At the end of the tour, it's worth appreciating the store that offers the plants grown there, ranging from simple to elaborate arrangements flowers. All very beautiful.

  • We found a well-organized Orchid nursery with several species (including hybrid and type). Besides the orchids, we find other plants. Beautiful location!

  • Nice place, nice and with great service. I will be back with my family. I recommend visiting the greenhouse. The visitor gets lost with so many species.
