  • Andoke is amazing. Simply. Amazing. Caterine, our guide, was very helpful and knowledgeable and gave us a very detailed tour of the reserve. We were able to see the full reproductive cycle of the butt...  more »
  • Bad path, poor training of staff who guide the visit, very little amount of species of butterflies. High price for what they offer

  • Just loved it. Fantastic place, not big but the whole philosophy behind it, the nature, just splendid.
  • We enjoyed the short guided tour, however the actual butterfly portion was small We felt the entrance fee was TOO high
  • Come for the butterflies; stay for the people. If you want to experience the genuine kindness and hospitality of the Colombian people, this is certainly a place you'll want to visit. These are some of the most hard-working and happy people you'll meet anywhere in the world. I enjoyed the very informative tour during which we were treated like dear friends rather than like tourists. You'll want to take time to sit, enjoy light snacks and Colombian hospitality. The small facility is beautiful and feels like a world away from the chaos of Cali. When it came time to leave, we were astonished by the generous offer of help from the owners that enabled us to get to our next destination, Cristo Rey -- close by and easy to do these two fun things in a single trip. Truly some of the nicest people I've met during my 4 month stay in Cali.

Where to stay in Cali

A huge selection of hostels and mid-range hotels make Cali one of the area's most tourist-friendly destinations, offering plenty of comfortable and affordable rooms for every budget and style. Visitors with deeper pockets generally go for the city's five-star hotels, most of which feature swimming pools and fitness facilities, and offer sweeping views from their rooftop bars. Rental apartments in and around Cali provide perhaps the best option for travelers on longer stays, offering extra space and lots of modern amenities.
