We enjoyed the tour through the butterfly garden with an excellent, english-speaking guide. The displays of the life-cycle of the butterfly and watching the butterflies emerge were very interesting. The garden also had a wide variety of orchids. A very informative, family-friendly place to visit.

So many wondrous little beauties. If you love to take pics of them some of the hardest ones are here and much easier. It only takes about an hour and worth the time. It also helps the locals.

Professional location with about 100 different butterflies from the region. great outdoor space to explore as well. Humming birds and other local wildlife is greatly encouraged on the grounds. Make sure to stop to eat in the restaurant! It was Great with good sized portions.

I have never seen such big amazing butterflies in my life, and you are surrounded by them! It was amazing! But be careful where you step there sometimes they are sitting on the ground and you can step on them by mistake!

This place gets better every time I visit. The tours are very professional with multilingual guides that are trained to tell visitors about butterfly conservation, transformation and life cycle. This activity is fun and unique for children and adults, where butterflies can be observed, fed...More

Buenas noches, por favor me podrías comentar exactamente que no te gustó del mariposario ya que según una propaganda es hermoso. Sin embargo estuve leyendo otros comentarios y dicen que no se justifica el precio con lo que en realidad se puede disfrutar. Te agradecería que me respondas ya que estoy pensando ir a visitar el mariposario y no quisiera arrepentirme de haber ido. Por ello solicito sus comentarios para sacar mi propia conclusión. Gracias de antemano

siento no haber respondido antes. a mí personalmente me gustó y no encontré el precio excesivo. realmente es una aventura ver como las mariposas se posas en tu nariz y observar la mutación en vivo.

Me parece que ahora son $ 6USD por adulto, y algo menos para niños. Vale la pena!
