Up in the Santa Elena Reserve (in Monteverde, Costa Rica), between the reception and nature center there is a small orchid garden. Walk slowly, scrutinize everything.
Beyond the garden is this covered bridge. Epiphytes covering every wooden part but the pathway.
As small as the garden and bridge are, one can spend an hour (or a lifetime if you are a biologist) examining all the flora and fauna. My son had his eye on something else and happy to nab his sister and sneak off together.
More epiphytes here
Another miniscule orchid garden here.
More orchids here & here.
