    The staff here was so nice and passionate botanists. The variety of orchids was the largest collection I've seen, my family and I learned a lot and enjoy it very much.

    Looks nice but it's so expensive... In my opinion it's overpriced but that's for many tourist Tours in Costa Rica...

    Informative, fun way to spend an hour. Good guide. We enjoyed seeing all of the flowers, including all the incredible tiny orchids. The guides were good. Guided tour took about 45 mins. This was a really nice short activity that was perfect for what it was.
