Jardín Botánico Lankester

Another beautiful place we visited on our trip to Costa Rica, was the Jardín Botánico Lankester in Cartago. This botanical garden is part of the University of Costa Rica to promote enjoyment, conservation and education. They focus on sustainable use of the epiphytic flora through scientific research, horticulture, and environmental education and pay special attention to orchids.

I don’t know much about different types of flowers and plants, but this was a really beautiful place to visit and spend an afternoon. It’s open to the public and you can even purchase flower cuttings to take home and plant yourself. Enjoy!
