Orchid Garden in Soroa
Have you even smelt an Orchid that smells like Chocolate?
My kind of plant!
There is a botanical garden, which specialises in growing hundreds of different species of orchids – my favourite being the one that smells of chocolate! Soroa's Orchid Garden is the largest in the country. It covers an area of 35,000 square meters and holds more than 20,000 plants of 700 species. It also has thousands of specimens of ferns and trees that turn this place into a unique site in Sierra del Rosario, which was declared a World Biosphere Reserve.
