There are some interesting orchids here that you will probably never see elsewhere. It only took about 20 min. for the very knowledgeable guide to take you through and explain everything. $10 for 20 min. seemed a bit pricey. If you go to the Morphos restaurant first you can get $2 off admission.

A beautiful place to go! hundreds of plants and orchids in bloom. Guide Ricardo was informative about orchids from around the world and especially local area. He showed us which ones to smell and use the magnifying glass for. Great value, we had coffee next door and got a discount to go in.

A guide explains all different types of orchids in a small but interesting garden. I have learned so much about orchids on my visit. It is a very educational place so I recommend to visit.

This is a garden of many different orchids, some are so tiny we would have not even seem them without the guides knowledge. Fascinating to see a smaller world we didn't know existed.
