To answer your questions, there is no specific time for orchids because year round we always have different species in bloom so at any time of the year you come, you will be able to see unique species. We have an average of 100 different species in bloom per day.
We emphasize on native species from Monteverde and Costa Rica, all natural species even some endemic to the Monteverde region. So you will definitely get an understanding of Costa Rican orchids.
