  • Very nice place of natural beauty. So many types of butterflies of various names and few birds too Find at least an hour and enjoy peace of mind. Thanks to Dr. Heblekar, we could not see him personally.
  • Very rare place where environment has been created to attract different butterflies. Very interesting for nature lovers.
  • Whatever you do ... PLEASE do not be tempted to go to this place. We went in the beginning of December 2017 and although they state there are 133 species of butterfly, we saw just THREE species! About six of one species and one specimen of the other two species! In fact we saw more butterflies in the grounds of our hotel than we saw here!! The place ('Mystic Woods') is tiny and consists of a small concrete pond with a couple of golfish in it, a small pond where you can put your feet in to let fish nibble at your dead skin and a very scruffy aviery which has about 4 bugerigars, a couple of very small parrots and a duck. Thats it, The walk consisted of aproximately 50 yards and has steps you could break your neck on if you slipped. The best part was reading the ticket you get after paying your 100 rupees. It states .... and I quote ... - * Entry to the premises as well as parking is at one's own risk. * We are not responsible for any accident, falls, sting or animal bites during your visit. * This ticket is non refundable and non transferable under any circumstances and cannot be reused. * This project is largely based on open garden concept and sighting of butterflies is not guaranteed. I was always under the impression that butterflies liked flowers and sunshine. Well you won't see any flowers or sunshine in 'Mystic Woods', maybe that's why they won't guarantee you seeing any butterflies in this very misleadingly named Butterfly Conservatory of Goa.
  • Charming little place with few butterflies, birds n greenery to see.
  • Suggesting others to Don't visit this place.Don't waste your time and money, Day light cheating..You can find these common butterflies near your house, 4~5 birds kept in a dirty net, some common fishes in a glass aquarium,it is looking like we lost our time and money..Garden he made on the roof of his own house can show to public without any ticket.government to stop these type of public looting in goa.

Where to stay in Goa

One of the more affordable regions for staying in India, Goa offers a good range of sleeping options, from budget to luxurious. Visitors looking for that feeling of home away from home can explore rental apartments, which offer more space than a hotel room and often come with fully equipped kitchens. Look for an apartment in Oxel or Siolim, peaceful villages with gated communities and a range of facilities. Beach houses and private villas offer an alternative for those with deeper pockets, while beach huts/shacks work well for budget-conscious travelers.
