Gardens in El Valle

For the largest selection of orquídeas (orchids) in the region, visit this idyllic, not-for-profit garden run by the local association of orchid producers east of the center. Volunteers work to maintain the lovely flowers inside the greenhouse and the grounds, and they welcome visitors to show off the more than 100 species of orchids cultivated here. Orchids are temperamental bloomers; check out the display room near the entrance to see what's flowering at the moment.
