Lonely Planet review

Orchid lovers and even the orchid-curious should not miss the wonderfully informative guided tour of this orchid sanctuary just off the highway to Cobán. The 1½ to 2 hour tour takes you through the history of orchid collecting, starting with the Maya, as you wend your way along along a path in the forest.

To get here catch any bus from Cobán headed for Tontem and get off when you see the sign, about 200m up the dirt road off Hwy 14.
