  • Entering through a car wash at the end where there is a hostel. The entrance is 2 usd nationals and the tour may be in Spanish or English. They explain how to reciperan the orchids of trees that are felled and return them to nature. They have a very interesting variety of orchids including the Holy Spirit. Highly recommended.

  • Amazing place. A hidden gem. So much variety of orchids. Around 300 species. Entrance only cost $2. The care takers of this place are very nice.
  • 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.
