Nature / Park · Wildlife Area
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. Plan your visit to Pilpintuwasi Butterfly Farm and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Iquitos online journey planner.
