Cattleya hybrid at Monteverde Orchid Garden Blue Morpho butterfly

Day 1 Butterfly and Orchid Gardens

Head out today to explore over 40 species at the Monteverde Butterfly garden. As you move through the open air garden you have a chance to learn about the life cycles and special behaviors that have allowed these butterflies to adapt into the species they are today. Next explore the Monteverde Orchid garden. This garden is split into three sections. The first section includes miniature orchids. Moving to the next section you will see the more famous Oncidium, Encyclea, Epidendrum and Maxillaria Orchids. The final section of the garden is dedicated to cross pollinated orchids so guests can see the difference between the natural orchids and their hybrid counterparts.

Beyond expectations! Then again we weren't sure what to expect. Lovely stay at the lodge, met other like-minded travelers (many had their trips planned by Adventure Life) and the owner was a gracious hostess. It felt like you were one happy family, visiting with a favorite aunt.
