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.

Where to stay in Teresopolis

Because one of the mains draws of Teresopolis is nature, it seems fitting that eco-friendly accommodation options are the norm here. The natural environment is highly valued and respected by the range of hotels and inns, which have been designed to integrate with nature. Look for cozy hotels tucked into the maze of city streets in the center, or base yourself closer to the national park if getting to the top of one of the mountains tops your list.
