  • Amazing! Worth the visit, great explanation of the process of growing an orchid. If you are a fan, its a must visit!  more »

  • 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.
