Pilpintuwasi Butterfly Farm, Iquitos

4.3
Stop by Pilpintuwasi Butterfly Farm to admire a range of Amazonian animals and see the impressive and important conservation and research work done by a non-profit organization. The dazzling array of winged beasts in the butterfly house is complemented by the amount of information given to visitors here; you'll learn about each stage of a butterfly's life through an introductory talk and displays. The center has grown beyond butterflies in recent years, with greater emphasis on providing a sanctuary for orphaned, abused, and neglecting animals from across the Amazon.

  • This is a interesting zoo. We learned a lot about nature and animals. You can take a boat from Nanay either to Padre Cocha and walk through the city or to Pilpintuwasi directly.  more »
  • This place can be visited from Tue to Sun and I personally recommend to go in the morning because that is the time when most butterflies are waking up and provides a very good looking environment.  more »
  • Very nice and very good explanation of the guide. The only bad thing is that the heat is unbearable and the place where, they give the talk and they have you like 1 hour no air conditioning
