Orchid Garden La Fortuna Waterfall

Orchid Garden

The orchid garden was designed inside the forest so that these plants grow in constant relation with their pollinators, predators and symbiosis, making ecosystem and allowing in this way to contribute to the conservation and procreation of forest species.

The garden consists of a collection of orchids consisting of 186-200 species native of Costa Rica, consisting of 940-1000 units belonging to 90 genera currently.

This is a project in process of maturation and thanks to the diversity and quantity of orchids, we can guarantee the flowering throughout the year, taking into account that many of the species flower once a year.


Many orchids have suffered the effects of deforestation and habitat loss, so many species were lost because of environmental deterioration; the indiscriminate collection of many species significantly reduced the populations of these plants, affecting the whole ecosystem and its pollinators in cascade.

The importance of the Orchid Garden is to generate awareness in visitors and give training on ecology, its natural balance and the fascinating world of correlation between orchids and bees.
