Some facts About Us

The Botanical Garden of Costa Rica

In this botanical garden, Tommy Thomas has amassed one of the largest collections of herbs, plants, and flowers in Central America for over 25 years. It is a focal point for doctors, herbalists, botanists, tourists and all the plant lovers in Costa Rica.

One has the choice of an educational tour with a botanist guide filled with anecdotes and stories. A tour of the botanical garden takes approximately 2.5 hours. Or if you prefer, spend a few hours strolling around the farm. You’ll enjoy the view, smells, and beauty of nature in the Ark Herb Farm’s gardens.

Plants are marked with symbols signifying their uses, such as medicinal, colorants, food, poisonous, culinary, crafts, ornamental, wood, or oil extraction. A walk through our botanical gardens is educational as well as a delight for the senses.

The Ark Herb Farm also offers an extensive nursery with medicinal, culinary and ornamental plants. Our botanists can provide valuable information about the medicinal plants available for sale. Individual consultation is available if you need extensive information.

We are open seven days a week. Contact us if you have special requests about medicinal plants and we’ll get back to you right away. We are constantly planting new varieties for the botanical gardens and for the nurseries.
