The climate and location of the capital of the Amazonas department encourages beautiful and exotic flowers to flourish. To enjoy the flora, one can visit the Santa Isabel orchid nursery, containing 150 varieties, which is located just ten minutes by car from the city. The Soldiniopsis Tigroid and Pragmipedium Caudatum are particular highlights. The nursery has a water dispenser so visitors can watch the hummingbirds.
Another important nursery is located in Choctamal, at the 17 km mark on the road towards the Kuélap archaeological zone. At this nursery, visitors can admire species including the Tricho Centrum, the Telipogon and the Maxilaria Kohelerii. The nursery is maintained by the community.
A rich variety of orchids can be found in their natural environment on various trekking routes and also along access roads to the Gocta waterfalls. In the Molinopampa zone, there is an orchid forest that is easily accessed as it is alongside the highway.
