Can anyone tell me how much it costs to visit the gardens, and are there any orchids? Thank you!

Hi! The entrance costs 3000 colones or $6, and there are several orchids but we are more specialized in bromeliads and heliconias among other spectacular flowering plants
Hello, there will be 5 of us arriving on July 5th, and we we'll need two rooms, 1 for 2 and another one for 3. Please let us know what will be available and the price. Thank you very much. Jan Cheung
