We hiked up and around the mountain trail, viewing the native plants and bromeliads. It was a climb into higher altitude, quiet and fresh. Take water with you if you go.

Stunning orchids and bromeliads. Great 2 km hike up through old oak forest. Absolutely love. The greenhouse is full of stunningly lovely tropical plants. Guide is helpful if you speak Spanish.

We went with our birding guide early in the morning, and it was just terrific. Not many bromeliads or orchids in bloom, but our main reason was to see birds and we weren't disappointed.
