Vivero-jardín Las Cattleyas - Other Activity Tarapoto - Peru

Just a quarter-block from Tarapoto’s Plaza de Armas is a refuge from the traffic and bustle: Vivero-Jardín Las Cattleyas. Behind the white-washed adobe walls is an Eden of orchids and other native plants of the Amazonian region. For over two decades, Elvira Meléndez has cultivated this garden, with such exotic flowers as the delicate monkey-faced and tiger-faced orchids. Each flower has its season, so visitors are guaranteed a colourful journey through the open-air greenhouse. Señora Meléndez also sells orchids and ornamental plants, and local artisan crafts.
