  • So cool! Well worth the money. you can go back as many times as you want on the same ticket. Go for meditation on Tuesday(?) mornings. A magical experience. My only complaint is the meditation was pretty cramp - not covid approved/ the woman leading it even encouraged people to take masks down, we are after all in a pandemic. But the normal times it's perfect, walking around in half indoor/half outdoor net cage thing with so many beautiful butterflies.
  • Nice place to learn about butterflies. They do tours as well. An orange butterfly came and sat on my finger and went along with me the whole tour. Wish I could have taken the little guy him
  • Wonderful...very calming seeing the butterflies all around.. great tour.. inexpensive...go first thing in the morning
  • A little expensive, but worth the money! This was a very enjoyable experience for our family and almost therapeutic to sit and watch the butterflies! The tour was wonderful and very informational. Although it was raining, it was still nice rainy day activity when we couldn't enjoy the beach. It is not a covered area (screening for the roof), but they have lots of umbrellas available to everybody, and larger ones that you could gather under as well.
  • Good night. I didn't visit the Butterfly Farm today I just brought my son there because he works there. But the times I went there I liked it very much because the place and the people working there are very nice and in that place you feel relaxed and at home.
