We were surprised how much we enjoyed this little stop before going to the airport. It was good to see some of those elusive butterflies we had seen fly by us in the rainforest up close. The airport is also just round the corner!

So many pretty butterflies everywhere!! It's hard to really take pictures of them when they fly so fast, but it's such a nice little visit before we hop on our planes.

Visited here as part of package at Inkaterra Amazonica. Quaint butterfly sanctuary with a small cafe with Wifi. Butterflies are pretty and plentiful. Visit time is about 30 minutes. It is literally a 5-min walk to airport in Puerto Maldonado. Nice place.

The butterfly garden is beautiful! The plants within are worth the price of admission. Right next to the airport so there's no excuse to miss it!

We would not have stopped but our shuttle to the airport had it scheduled - it was lovely and a good short term visit.

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.
