Pilpintuwasi Butterfly Farm, Iquitos

(4.5/5 based on 440+ reviews on the web)
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. Put Pilpintuwasi Butterfly Farm into our Iquitos tourist route planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.
