My family and I have been through many butterfly gardens and this one was one of the very best! So many beautiful species of butterflies and just by sitting down, butterflies surrounded us. A highlight for our 11 year old daughter!

Cute spot to check out butterflies up close. Good spot if you have children or are an adult who enjoys getting up close to nature.

It was such an interesting exhibit. It is run by a family. It is efficient and clean. There is a lovely gift shop, restaurant and exhibit. The food was excellently prepared to OUR liking. The owners are fluent in English and Spanish and French.

Cute little butterfly farm, lots of beautiful butterfly's set in a nice area with a little speech about their growth at the beginning. $7.50 for a ticket; quite expensive but a nice quick thing to do in mindo
