A terriffic tour, very informative and interesting with countless different orchids. We even sampled a stevia leaf among the display of culinary and medicinal plants. A treat for the senses, the tour was well planned and well executed.

It was lovely to see this place. A tranquil spot with interesting guides, lovely scenery and a good insight into biodiversity, conservation and some problems facing the Guatemalan countryside. Recommended!
