  • I loved this garden! What an amazing learning experience. I had no idea that orchids could be so tiny. If it weren’t for this tour I would have missed so many. After this tour I was able to spot orchids in the preserves. Teeny tiny little flowers that I otherwise would have missed. If you’re a plant lover like I am, then this is a must do!
  • A bit expensive (12$) but a nice 45 min tour with an energetic guide. A multitude of orchid species are present, varying from humongous to tiniest.
  • Great experience! Our guide knew her stuff and walked people through many of the quirks of orchids. Their company collection of miniature orchids was impressive. This place is worth a visit.
  • Interesting. I love orchids. Small but always something to see. Bit expensive but the guide loves her job. I think there should be a tourist price and a tico price.
  • Very nice. Small but very beautiful. Orchids are beautiful.
