Have order orchids for a number of years from them and they have delivered to Calgary orchid show with no problems. Surprised considering the distance.

If you have any interest in orchids then you must stop here if you get the chance. They do a very nice tour, but the orchids speak for themselves (some shout!). The number of varieties is staggering and the care they take is also extraordinary....More

I was traveling solo but met some people to take a day tour outside the city. This is a definite stop. The tour was so interesting and the story of the Orchid Farm is worth hearing. I loved the grounds and learning about orchids.

A nice stop on the way to Chordeleg. The tour was interesting and at the end of it, the kids got to feed the guacamayos. They had a blast.

The place from the outside already called someone's attention. It had many species of orchids but they were displayed so tight you aren't able to admire them. The closing time is at 4:30 and the place is about one hour away from Cuenca so you...More

I'm not an orchid aficionado but even I could appreciate the beauty and delicateness of the many orchids in Ecuagenera's garden. A guide gave us a in-depth, unhurried tour. We saw hundreds of varieties of orchids. Quite enjoyable.

So glad to hear you had a good time with us, thank you for your visit!

Nice little tour (30minutes) through the ground and with plenty of information and different Orchids. Just $5pp and 20minutes outside of Cuenca, it's recommendable if you have a car and want to get out of the city for a bit!
