Wonderful to observe so many different orquids, ferns and bromeliads. Not to be missed for anyone enjoying the ecosystem of Coatepec and the overwhelming variety of endemic plants protected here.

This museum is worth the trip. It presents a range of Orquideas (Orquids) and some interesting information about how the flowers are grown.
