AGROTOURISM AND ORCHID GARDEN

If you are interested in agrotourism, you have the opportunity to learn about the works they carry out to promote the management of acahuales (vegetation in regeneration), a strategy to promote the sustainable use of jungles.

 

The community has the more extensive orchid garden in the region, which was formed with species rescued from lands that were victims of deforestation.

 

Ask your guide if there are species in bloom so you can see their colorful and lush flowers.
