I truly believe this is a beautiful place - if the orchids are blooming. There were very few flowers blooming when we were there, but it was still a nice place to walk around for 20 minutes or so.

Knowledgeable staff can answer all your orchid questions. There are prolongation rooms and lots of orchids on the trees and in display areas.

I brought a group of college students to APROVACA to volunteer for half-days during our stay in El Valle de Antón. Some painted, some wrote up tags for naming trees and orchid types, as well as past visitors and donators. Overall it was a fantastic experience. Ayumi, here from Japan, (the equivalent of the US Peace Corps, she told us), is an excellent host for APROVACA, warm and welcoming, as well as providing great information for our students. The other volunteers are also outgoing. After our time at APROVACA, I started to notice what I would never have noticed previously - how trees in El Valle are often hosts to many other living plants, as well as orchids. Look up as you walk down the Calle de los Millionarios, and you will see orchids in so many trees!…

Beautiful place. Every year volunteers place the orchids back to the mountains. The place is very organized and also peaceful. Great place to visit.
