The place from the outside already called someone's attention. It had many species of orchids but they were displayed so tight you aren't able to admire them. The closing time is at 4:30 and the place is about one hour away from Cuenca so you...More

I'm not an orchid aficionado but even I could appreciate the beauty and delicateness of the many orchids in Ecuagenera's garden. A guide gave us a in-depth, unhurried tour. We saw hundreds of varieties of orchids. Quite enjoyable.

Nice little tour (30minutes) through the ground and with plenty of information and different Orchids. Just $5pp and 20minutes outside of Cuenca, it's recommendable if you have a car and want to get out of the city for a bit!

Excellent orchid shop and excellent service and advice. The staff is very knowledgeable about orchids and Staghorn ferns.

I could have done without this visit. It was reasonably interesting but nothing compared to a visit to the rose plantations. If you have to choose then choose the roses. The orchids are not bad but if you've ever been to Singapore then don't bother....More

It is really nothing but a store & a nursery! The orchids in the store ARE beautiful, but who can buy an orchid while traveling? The tour is only 15 minutes long! What a tourist trap!More

We really enjoyed our visit here. To begin with, their sales room was filled with an amazing number of different types of orchids and it smelled wonderful. Then on the tour we saw many, many more orchids and also learned about how they raise the...More

I took this trip using public transportation, just told the bus driver where I wanted left off at, just short of an hour travel each way. The site is very cool, Ecuagenera has a series of greenhouses, 30 plus here, about 10 near Guayaquil, and...More

This was a top notch experience at one of the largest and most important orquid nursery in South America. They have won numerous prizes in international orchid competitions, and for good reason. We were given a private tour, which lasted over 90 minutes, with detailed...More

They do not have accommodation, it is just an orchid farm with tours.

We would like to come for a tour. What would be the best day to come to have an English speaking guide, perhaps one of the owners ? Thank you.
