Cute butterfly house that is worth stopping at. Unique experience and can be done if on a time schedule (or not!). Nice and convenient location near the local airport. Beautiful site and beautiful animals.

Nice diversion before getting on a flight. Simply lots of lovely butterflies in a rather attractive setting.

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.

Not many butterfly's but the day I went was quite smoky from some sort of vegetation fire. Good descriptions of the butterflies and nice vegetation. If going solely for the butterflies you may be disappointed. Very nice cafe onsite with great coffee with nice gift...More

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!
