I visited there also in the late 1990's and they had amazing collections Costa Rican plants.  I believe they are still quite active in orchid research and publication through Franco Pupulin and Robert Dressler.

I visited the Wilson Gardens in Costa Rica (near Golfito) in the late 1990âs and at least by that time we had no difficulty in reaching it.  It is an amazing place.

Hi David,
Bob and Catherine Wilson did create a wonderful botanical garden in Las Cruces, Costa Rica. I understand it was off the beaten track and very difficult to get there. I was hearing about it in the 60s.
