Today we visited Casa Orquideas, a botanical garden created by two American expats who made their home in the remote Golfo Dulce of Costa Rica after 35 years of gathering tropical plants from all over the world. Their creation has blossomed into a fantastic array of flowers, fruits, spices, and medicinal plants. Only accessible by water, their property faces the waters of the bay and is cradled between steep hills covered with dense primary tropical rainforest.
As we walked the property, we saw many birds coming to eat the fruits growing there. Truly a perfect showcase of tropical biodiversity!
