  • After a horrible hotel experience and delayed flight, being around birds and butterflies, made my travel to Florida a beautiful memory. Between the kids groups and loud microphone tours and nutcracker...  more »

  • I have lived in South Florida for over 20 years and had never thought much about Butterflly World. I recently visited it so bring my parents who were visiting and had a free morning. I was pleasantly ...  more »
  • Walking through the butterfly area you are surrounded by clouds of lovely butterflies, gorgeous! Several areas present colorful birds and flowers. A nice place to spend a few hours (mostly outdoors, so try to go when it isn't so hot). The place is perfectly maintained and is a nice version of an "old Florida" attraction.
  • We had a lot of fun while there. I think with the price you should be able to have so many little cups to feed the birds instead of asking for more money. Plus you have to pay for parking. The guy at the front desk was nice and thanked my husband for his service in the Military. Not very many other people there really talked much. The bug section was interesting and I don't deal with bugs. The weather was great as well thank God. People just need to pay attention to not touch the butterflies but that's just ignorance in there own way. It's posted everywhere but maybe post it larger so those types of people can see it. I would recommend this place to many people if they came down south. Thank you for having something like this around.
  • If you are looking for a wonderful relaxing time go to this place. So nice to see the Butterflies and the birds. It can be mesmorizing.I see some people think it is expensive. But keep in mind all that research that goes into this place. For the price of one dinner you can enjoy the beauty of nature. Amazing tropical flowers. There is no place like this in the US. So go and enjoy.
  • The sights, the sounds, the beauty of nature and butterflies. This butterfly heaven is everything a regular human being must experience before they die. If I had a picture of this place it would be of butterflies with little halos over their head. Not because their dead but because there place is so heavenly the halos come naturally. Ten out of 10 will come again.
  • This place is a double edged sword, it's a really nice place too hang out for a few hours and the butterfly enclosure is very cool. They also have an aviary which is neat but the killer is it's $30 a person! Way too expensive to warrant more than 1 trip. On top of that, you have to pay for parking. I wouldn't mind the parking free as the park area is very nice, but for a few hours enjoyment for 2 people you're looking at $70+. I'm glad I went but I won't be returning.
