Beautiful place

It's a bit small place but the orchids are really beautiful so worth the visit. If you do not want to buy a plant, you will spend max 30min. And it's totally free.

The restaurant is great. Mr. Paulo takes care of everybody and serve home made breakfast. All workers are very polite and always attend my requests. Very calm, clean and space bedrooms.

They have nice exposition of orchids in bloom, but the prices for orchids there are the highest in the town. Moreover they have lack of information - even on the road it's not easy to find the right way to get there.

teresópolis is a town in the mountain region of the State of Rio, about 1:30 drive away. This orchidário is a small area, and by no means pay for a trip there if you are not in the region. Wanna see orchids in Rio? Go to the Botanic Garden

Thank Jonas C
