  • Meet the because of the butterflies and how it operates its short life is really interesting, but sharing with them as closely as here can be is an illusion. Very educational.

  • I found this very nice place, is the love and the care of people who care for him. We learned many things since they take their time to explain.

  • Visit begins with an explanation of the life of butterflies and a video very well done. Following you is accompanied to a butterfly garden where you will find ten different types of butterflies in a very well kept garden. Value per adult and usd 5 (non-residents), adult 3.5 usd (residents) and 1 dollar for children. Worth it for being a quick ride (max 1:30 h) and a lot of fun. Contains bathrooms clean and free parking on site.

  • Short tour but defiantly fun being surrounded by butterflies
  • I had a chance to go here a couple of months ago with colleagues and we all had a fun time. It was interesting to see so many butterflies in one location. Definitely a place children would enjoy seeing as well as adults.
  • A quiet place, the beers cold, good service and no charge gratuities.
