    We found this little treasure, Ms. Manager guided us every corner giving a finished explanation of each type of Orchid, as beautiful as the others, it is worth a view. Simple and beautiful.

    The place offers a great variety of orchids, ornamental and medicinal plants. The explanations are very interesting. Most orchids bloom during the rainy season (us went in summer). Plants can be bought to help the Association. Very good for relaxing travel.
