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.

This was our first trip to South America and we were a little nervous. But Adventure Life made things so easy! All our questions were answered before we left, and our guide, Vidal, was amazing! He gave us enough space to explore without rushing us along. He also knew where the best picture taking opportunities were, which was great.
