They feed both butterflies and birds on a regular basis so that your chances of seeing a great diversity is enhanced. Nice visitor's center and everyone we met was very helpful. more »

Beautiful and relaxing way to spend an afternoon. Bring your camera and be ready for a few Mosquitos. Many butterfly's and birds (even in the low season). I plan to come back sometime in September for peak butterfly season. Marcelo (spelling?) was working while we were visiting. He was very informative and patient with all of our questions. We were impressed with his patience, knowledge, and friendliness. Can't wait to come back!

I love this place. The gardens are perfectly untidy for butterflies. There are plenty of nectar sources for the adults & host plants for the caterpillars. The staff are super friendly & helpful. I visited 2 days in a row & saw different butterflies and caterpillars each day (not to mention the bonus wildlife like birds, beetles, bunnies, turtles, & Spike!). I will be going back, & I highly recommend the center to others.

Very beautiful place to visit and enjoy the outdoors. You are allowed to take photos of any insect or animal you come across. A very magnificent place to visit every once and a while. Its worth the trip.

Excellent unknown treasure that everyone should be visiting! You are guaranteed to see so many exotic butterflies and even birds! If you would like to reconnect with nature, I highly recommend visiting this place. It is worth the drive!

Absolutely the best spot for both watching and photographing butterflys and insects. Beautiful gardens, and trails.
