  • We were welcomed by the manager who first explained the life cycle of butterflies and showed us the living specimens (larvae, pupae and cocoons etc), then we returned in the Aviary or explanations have continued. Then we were alone all the time that we wanted to in the Aviary to take pictures and watch the flight of the butterfly, which some come to rest on your shoulder. Finally, the visit ended with a commented slide show on a tv screen, maybe a bit repetitive with the first. For $ 5 I found that it was not exaggerated compared to the service that was full. I must say that we were the only visitors. We stayed 1 h 30 and it us a lot of fun. Note that you only speak here Spanish or English. There is when even a good number of butterflies in the aviary, but in fact little different species (4 or 5), and one much represented. With a little luck you will see one of the 2 hummingbirds of the aviary, we saw them. Attention do not expect to visit a zoo, it's an Aviary of approx. 30 m 2 with butterflies of plants and a guided tour. If you go to El Valle I recommend a passage to this place that will appeal to the largest and especially to children. Visit preferably as there no other guests.

  • A nice little trip into the world of butterflies. The staff is nice and competent, the visit lasts no more than an hour, which was worth but with information.

  • 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.
