Jardín Sólo Rosas
Cartago Province, Costa Rica
Jardín Sólo RosasA shared obsession for roses as well as for Costa Rica’s numerous microclimates led entrepreneurs Martín Guzmán and Luis Guillermo Vega to take up cultivating and exporting the flowers about 30 years ago. Over time, they created a garden unlike any other in Latin America, where visitors can enjoy the delicate scents and varieties of 300 species in every imaginable size and color. Much of the fun comes from the flowers’ curious names, such as the Botero Rose, with wide petals that evoke the exaggerated proportions of the figures created by the namesake Colombian artist.
