Discover one of the wonders the amazing Guatemala Rainforest in Cobán produces. With a large biodiversity, this place is well known because of its wonderful nature, where the orchids occupy a privileged, important place because of its beauty and for being the national flower of Guatemala. The name of the national flower is the “Lycaste Skinneri”, also known as the White Nun Orchid. It is a rare flower that symbolizes peace, beauty and art, and can be found in the Verapaz district. A degree by General Jorge the 1st in 1934 made the white nun the national flower.
To explore this natural world of beauty, we offer 2 Orchid tours. One of them has a stone path leading into the forest, enabling you to appreciate the wonderful local orchids in their natural habitat, surrounded by bromeliad, helicoids, birds, butterflies and tree frogs. Then there is the opportunity to visit the experimental orchid station and greenhouses, where you will be able to enchant yourself with the delicate beauty of the splendid local orchids.
