Chiriqui Province Sights

Finca Drácula

  • Garden/Arboretum

Updated 07/22/2012

Fodor's Review

Interested in orchids? Finca Drácula holds one of Latin America's largest collections. The farm's name is taken from a local orchid, which has a dark red flower. The main focus here is reproducing orchids for export, but workers also give 40-minute tours, though in limited English and by prior appointment only. The farm has 2,700 orchid species from Panama and around the world, as well as a laboratory where plants are reproduced using micropropagation methods. The best

time to visit is between March and May, when flowers are in bloom. If you don't have a 4WD vehicle, walk 20 minutes from Guadalupe to get here.
