Monteverde Orchid Garden, Monteverde Reviews
I loved this garden! What an amazing learning experience. I had no idea that orchids could be so tiny. If it weren’t for this tour I would have missed so many. After this tour I was able to spot orchids in the preserves. Teeny tiny little flowers that I otherwise would have missed. If you’re a plant lover like I am, then this is a must do!
Did not enjoy coming here due to the fact that I did not see any orchids that were alive for the most part. I think it is mostly due to the fact that we came to the garden in December however it is not a big place and regardless of it being the off season for orchids (perhaps) the grounds were not kept up nicely and the green house was falling apart on the inside. We also were put into a tour group which I was not expecting and it was a small and crowded area to even walk around and enjoy the minimal orchids that were alive. Save your money and your time and see the orchids in Monteverde in the cloud forest.
Maybe we went at the wrong season but the orchids weren’t impressive. Not worth the $12/person. Go spend more time in the cloud forest reserve and find your own orchids. We also had an awful group of people with us. Didn’t change the fact that many of the plants seemed dead and the greenhouse was in tatters. Would skip it.
Our tour guide was excellent. He kept a good place, pointed out interesting facts about orchids and deftly maneuvered the group through sometimes cramped quarters. His knowledge of the botany was a bit shallow, but sufficient. He often didn't know much about specific species but certainly knew the general pollination strategies if orchids. It wasn't cheap (12$ for adults) but what in Santa Elena is?
The staff here was so nice and passionate botanists. The variety of orchids was the largest collection I've seen, my family and I learned a lot and enjoy it very much.
