    Totally recommended, unique and entertaining experience for young and old. See freedom fluttering dozens of butterflies as well as an iguana and a cangurito. It is the delight of all. Highly recommended (seen in 1 h max)

    A great place we friend our visit to Benalmadena. We went with our children of 10 and 12 who were very happy. The truth is that it is recommended and we had no problems parking. Time is one of the responsible to give a brief and interesting talk. You can, in addition to many butterflies, see some birds and a dwarf Kangaroo taken by a large lizard. Funny.
