Periférico Norte 4, Ojo de Agua, 29220 San Cristóbal de las Casas, Chis., Mexico
Orchid Botanical GardenOne of the highlights of any trip to San Cristobal de las Casas is a visit to the Orquideas Moxviquil. Cisco Dietz, the owner, is a most knowledgeable person and is in love with rare plants. He designed and built the green house (pictured) for the lowland, hot weather orchids, and around the gardens are several thousand species of highland bromiliads and orchids, plus many transplanted species of mushrooms.
