  • Really great! Owner is obviously very knowledgeable and passionate, and I felt like I actually learned a lot about butterflies while we were there. I would highly recommend as a stop on your trip. Just $10 for adults, so very inexpensive and fun! :$
  • This place is Amazing! We had a great time learning about butterflies and their host plants. Both the teenager and the 7 year old were completely charmed. They each got to hold a caterpillar and an owl butterfly.
  • We took the bus and it was a short, (20-30 min) but beautiful hike on a dirt road. Our guide was very informative. We walked the grounds afterwards and the gardener offered us fresh green coconuts. It was a beautiful experience.
  • Beautiful experience with the butterflies. We learned so much about the butterflies and the habitat they thrive in. Awesome experience.
  • A visit to the Royal Butterflies was an entrancing experience for my family, made all the more vivid by Dan— the owner— who took us around the enclosure. The butterflies are gorgeous. But most captivating was Dan’s explanation of their life cycles and diets, along with the extraordinary ways in which they deter predators. I’d encourage you to visit, both for the butterflies and the beautiful garden surrounding their enclosure. We came away with a new appreciation for butterflies, caterpillars and everything in between, and a sense of time very well spent. I am guessing you will too.
