The butterfly garden and the external hummingbird garden were both beautiful. A guide explained a little bit about the growth of butterflies in their different stages (only available in Spanish), and afterwards we could walk around freely. Aside from many different species of butterflies we...More

Really enjoyed visiting. The butterflies are beautiful and very tame so they often land on your hands and shoulders, which is lovely. 4-star because the trails are not much to speak of.

Very interesting to learn about the life cycle of these beautiful and delicate creatures. So peaceful in the garden and great photo opportunities of them . You can dip your fingers in the nectar and they will land on them !

What could be more relaxing than hanging with hundreds of butterflies. A top place to visit and very ecologically minded staff. Don’t wear insect repellent!!!!!

Butterflies flying all over the place. Just sit and watch and wander around to a few places where there is fruit to attract them.

Although not much of a tour, per se, it was interesting to see the various stages of butterfly growth from a tiny speck on a leaf to a fully grown butterfly. They take you from one structure to the next where you are totally captivated...More

This is a delightful place to visit. You can sit and watch the colourful butterflies for as long as you want. You can also see the four stages of gestation in action. A bit expensive but worth it.

Lovely garden setting - a few kilometres from Mindo township. Interpretive signs to assist with the identification of species. Very relaxing.

The garden is inside and environmentally controlled so I am not sure that one month over another makes much difference. The butterfly garden is beautiful and very similar to other butterfly gardens I have visited in Texas... More
