“A natural oaisis in an urban environment”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 January 2012

I highly recommend a visit to Moxviquil during any amount of time spent in San Cristobal. The grounds are incredible, and rescued epiphytes and created wetlands are certainly worth supporting. The plant diversity is inspiring, outside and within the greenhouse. We visited Moxviquil for an afternoon – had a picnic, a fantastic tour of the facility, and then hiked the beautiful trail system up the mountains on the north side of the city. Our kids loved stretching their legs and running. Such an expanse of green space in an urban environment is truly a gift for the community and for visitors. I was happy to learn that thousands of local school kids also have experienced Moxviqui as welll. It is a great example of creative sustainability. Moxviquil rejuninated our family after several weeks of San Cristobal city life. We really needed the green space and fresh air.
