  • A nice place with green houses and quite walkways thruout the property. A little run down and in need of care, but enjoyable. Not sure if tours are available, which would be nice as the plants are not...  more »
  • Since we had our hotel as a plant lover nearby, we have visited this garden. The whole area was very nice, but we were slightly disappointed by the width of the range of orchids. Since we were expecting more. At the end of the tour, there are several aviaries with parrots. They are pretty, but not too sensational. Overall, you can spend a relaxing hour in the garden, but whether that justifies the price of admission, which must decide every man for himself.

  • Gorgeous place to spend an afternoon. One of the birds is quite talkative and they are all beautiful. This place is so peaceful and the restaurant inside is yummy with friendly, fast service.
  • Beautiful Gardens.. Coffee Shop on site
  • Beautiful place to enjoy with family and friends.
  • Great gardens to visit! More than gardens actually as there is a bit of bird life to take in too. The grounds are spectacular and would imagine they would be even more vibrant (and greener) during the rainy season. There was some nice stuff in the greenhouses but not too much in flower. There is one greenhouse display area that is full of blooms and colours. There are cen net and gravel trails to follow and most of the different flora and fauna have Spanish and English signage indicating what they are. There is also a cafeteria with inside and outside seating. A great way to kill a couple hours while at the same tome taking in some beauty! Admission: $12USD/6,000 Colones
  • The place is very nice but there is to go in the season of orchids so worthwhile
