If you like hummingbirds, go no further. The feeders area is amazing. We came here to see the endangered rufous-crested coquette, and got to see one right away. It is also a nice hike up to the feeders area.

Good low key accommodation for the nature-oriented traveller. The rooms are small but adequate - you don't go to a place like this to spend time in the room other than for sleeping! - though hot water availability was a bit problematic. Staff are uniformly...More

We arrived late in the day after a bouncing trip up the drive via mototaxi and were glad that the proprietors allowed us to take a tour. Our guide, a young lady of fourteen was extremely knowledgeable and personable. We viewed numerous orchids and bromeliads...More
With a funny name the Waqanki Center has a beautiful shaded garden with rare and spectacular orchids and various other flowers. There are lots of nice insects and small animals. Wear repellent as there are also manky mosquitos. We had a really nice tour in...More

We visited to see the orchids which were disappointing - not many flowering. The humming birds were spectacular though and well worth the visit. There are several different species, and a nice kind of tree house viewing platform. But the place is a bit half-baked....More
This is probably very beautiful and impressive when the orchids are in full bloom, but at this time of year (April), there was barely a flower in the whole place. Not their fault - nature's a bit like that! The humming birds were interesting, though.
