Overview

For plant lovers we offer an educational journey in our collection of medicinal plants, accompanied by a professional guide. We have more than 120 medicinal plant species in our garden. Tour duration is of 1.5 hours, after the tour you can walk through our trails within the gardens and forest, discovering more about ecological farm and our research center.

The use of medicinal plants has a long history in Costa Rica and we would like to share it with you. Nine tribes of indigenous peoples relied heavily on the use of plants for survival, sustenance, healing, and communication with ancestors / spirits. Shamans, who could vary from a more spiritual role, were in charge of the connections between the spirits and the body. To accomplish their work, they used a variety of plants and were very careful with those who shared this acquired knowledge. Once settlers began arriving in the early 16th century, there was a net loss of knowledge as indigenous populations of roughly 400,000 were reduced to roughly 10,000.

The collection of medicinal plants and the forest trails contain plants that are used in traditional Costa Rican and world medicine, which are commonly planted or collected by the people of the area. We are not only a garden of medicinal plants, we are a place of teaching, research and environmental education.
