Owner description: The Monteverde Butterfly Gardens has been teaching people about the marvels of insects and arachnids for over 20 years. Our mission has always been to change the way people view these small but fantastically diverse animals. It is not hard either- with 4 different butterfly habitats housing up to 30 species of butterfly, a leaf cutter ant colony and over 20 species of live Costa Rican insects and arachnids in our nature centre we have something that will melt the heart of even the most devout bug crusher! A dedicated and passionate group of staff and volunteers will guide you on a tour through our three acre facility where you will see just some of the amazing insects and arachnids Costa Rica has to offer! The property is lush and full of other Costa Rican favourites such as capuchin monkeys and agoutis! Birders will not be disappointed with wrens galore and common visits from Keel Billed toucan, blue crowned motmot and the occasional appearance of the famed bell bird. We are open 365 days a year, so drop by whenever you can!

Saw loads of butterflies and the guide was knowledgeable. Interesting but on the expensive side for what it is

Such a great facility and tour. Was great to see (and hold) the bugs, butterflies, and ants. Well worth it!

This is a very cute little garden, and your tickets are good for your entire stay in Monteverde! The staff speaks very good English and they take you on a tour of the park. We even got to release some newly hatched butterflies, which was a fun treat!

We went here as it was near to the hotel we were staying at and we had a spare afternoon. The female guide was extremely knowledgeable about the butterflies and insects and could tell she really enjoyed her work. Didn't see that many butterflies but what we did see were lovely. Worth a visit

A very pleasant stop and a great way to learn things you did not know about butterflies and spiders. A terrific opening lecture about spiders and snakes as well as the variious stages of butterflies. This was followed by a tour of 4 different habitats for different butterflies.
