  • We visited here at the end of the holiday as it is very close to the airport, stunning butterflies up close and great photo opportunities. Small but beautifully run and inexpensive. 
  • There is a variety of butterfly, 30 steps from the entrance to the airport, where one enters this pleasant space but without a guide

  • It seemed that the stop here was only about killing some time before the flight. The facility was large and there were several species. It was self guided with no staff interaction.
