This attraction was part of a tour. The guide was informative and this place was interesting. Many beautiful butterflies. Nice pictures taken, very colorful butterflies, there is also a pond with koi fishes and turtles. Good place for young children.

Complete and utter waste of money. Family of 4 cost us over $70 and we were there for 15 minutes. Save your money for something else......

I had the best time. The guide was very informative. The butterflies come from all over the world and are well cared for. Pictures are super. The lizard on the wire roof was just hoping to get in!

Very informative guides. Lovely garden with various colorful butterflies of different species. Friendly, knowledgable staff. Go early in the day. Combine it with a De palm island tour.

The butterflies are well taken care of and there are so many! The gift shop is small, but they have many interesting things. We really liked the boxes that house the chrysalises and we even saw a few emerging butterflies. There is a nice bridge and a beautiful pond with fish.

A guide will inform you about the difference between fruit and flower eaters, the life stages and their facility. Go early in your week, you can return anytime that week.

Great butterfly sanctuary ! The tour was informational and was catered to children and adults. I learned some facts that I never knew about butterflies and how they survive.
