the orchid center is small, but the people are very caring. I was given a personal tour by a young man who spoke English. The facts he told were very educational and his knowledge was quite extensive. The center works to grow and re-habitate rare, endagered and indigenous orchids from and back into the forests and jungles of Panama.I would estimate at least 40 species of orchid on display. They also have quite a few lovely Phalaenopsis for sale, along with a very small gift counter.
