Summary

This holiday complements our successful tour of the country’s northern parts. It discovers the southern regions, an unexplored and rugged wilderness, where the amenities are more basic, but where one can experience an alternative to the hustle and bustle of the more popular tourist destinations. We start at the Lankester Garden, which has a world-class collection of nearly a thousand varieties of orchids. We continue to a mountain lodge in the cloud forest where we enjoy a fascinating wildlife walk, then move on to the Wilson Botanical Garden. We conclude with a visit to the Central Pacific region, where we enjoy a unique farm-to-table tour featuring the local cuisine, as well as an opportunity to take a fascinating night forest walk on the trails around the lodge.

This tour can be combined with our Gardens of Costa Rica, both of which will be led by Colin Crosbie, former Curator of RHS Wisley and currently President of the Scottish Rock Garden Club.

Tour highlights:

  • World class collection of orchids at Lankester Gardens
  • Roberto Burle Marx design at Wilson Gardens
  • Explore remote corners of the rainforest
  • Sample the local cuisine in a hands-on experience
  • Enjoy a swim in the Pacific Ocean
