Monteverde, Costa Rica
Feb. 27, 2011
Willy suggested we visit the Monteverde Orchid Garden ("Jardín de Orquídeas"). It was not on our itinerary, but it was well-worth the $10 entrance fee. The garden has over 450 species of orchids (out of aprox. 1400 species) from Costa Rica.
It was a real thrill to see the world's smallest orchid! This tiny plant is an epiphyte, its flower is only a couple of millimeters across.
