Celebrate the richness of Costa Rica with Kew Gardens' annual orchid festival.

Our stunning horticultural displays bring to life the incredible biodiversity of Central America through the culture and colours of a country home to 5% of the world's flora and fauna species.

Transport yourself to the tropics in our route weaving through the Princess of Wales Conservatory.

In homage to the country's landscape, our curated structures made from plants will feature a host of amphibians, reptiles and insects - including the native quetzal bird, a symbol of Costa Rican forest protection.

The glasshouse pond will be filled with brilliant oranges and yellows to imitate a rising sun, and the national flower Guarianthe skinneri will be on show in its vibrant pink glory.

Costa Rica is a role model for biodiversity conservation and a major orchid habitat.

This year, we showcase the collaboration between in-country experts and Kew scientists in their mission to understand Costa Rica's wonderful plant life. Together, our projects include constructing a ‘family tree’ for all the country's orchid species and documenting plants in La Amistad Biosphere Reserve - one of the most diverse places on Earth.
