Tours

Our guided tours with botanists are a learning experience with stories and anecdotes about the herbs and flowers. Enjoy the incredible view of the San Jose valley with the birds and butterflies that reside in this beautiful refuge.

Or one can go at their own pace reading the signs, relaxing on the benches placed throughout the gardens, enjoying your own private tour in the relaxed manner of the Costa Rican lifestyle. Bring a picnic to enjoy the area provided.
