If you are a plant freak then you must not skip this amazing place. Greenhouse full of orchids, bromeliads and tropicals that will send you over the moon. Very nice and friendly who will give you a good deal of information if you speak Spanish....More

OM is beautiful every day of the year. Every day present wonderful flowers, sights and smells. This is a great time to visit, the rainy season, May till November, because all is green, lush and filled with life. March and April would be my least favorite times at OM, dry, and not as alive as other times. Come and enjoy we know what every day of the year you will enjoy. Play, touch and learn. Paz.
