Orchid at Maya Beach Hotel

Just the other day I noticed this gorgeous orchid at the Maya Beach Hotel. I have heard for many years that Belize has more varieties of orchids than any other country. Not sure of the accuracy of that claim, but there is no doubt that the abundance and variety is very great. 

Those of you wanting to explore Belize and see these, might find this book valuable.
