A wonderful, peaceful & educational day in nature. Wandering through the butterfly house, interesting talks & some of the most peaceful moments strolling around the gardens. Bird enclosure was delightful & the birds are often close enough for some terrific photos. A lovely couple of eateries on site too for lunch.

Here you can observe birds, butterflies, monkeys, orchide and walk in the "jungle". There are several pools where you can swim and relax. Must see if you visit Santa Cruz. The buffet was good, but expensive.

It's a nice but a bit expensive option If you have nothing to do in Santa Cruz and want to see the diversity of local birds, reptiles and butterflies. The fastest way to get there is by taxi (approx 20-30 min drive)

Overall good experience but the buffet is nothing exceptional especially for the price. Very limited food options. The staff is not always very nice (boutique) and some don't even know about the available facilities like the mini golf for the children.

Great place. It's got an aviary and a butterfly sanctuary that are worth looking around for an hour or so. Some other animals too like tortoises. The main draw is the half dozen outdoor swimming pools. It's a nice place to chill by the pool, great tunes playing from the bar, big waterfalls to sit under. Worth a visit to... More

Really great place to spend a day. Loads of animals to see - butterflies, birds, tortoises! Really nice to wander around. It's very pretty! There are pools and sun beds also that you can spend some time at.

There are lots of reviews and lots of opinions about this place. We gave it a try and really enjoyed it. The bird sanctuary alone is worth the visit. It was an easy 20 minute taxi ride from our hotel (Cortez), and the cost was $11 each way. As it was a cool and overcast day, we knew we wouldn't... More
