Our daughter is obsessed with butterflies, so this visit seemed like a must. We were disappointed at how expensive it was for what was offered. An upside was the extremely affordable outdoor café.

Definitely worth taking time out on your holiday, or a few hours from your day, to visit the butterfly park when it first opened I assumed it would prove to be a spectacular failure like other niche attractions Spain has dabbled with, but with realistic entrance prices, and offering a unique experience hopefully this will prove to be a long...

Definitely worth a visit! Hundreds if not thousands of butterflies flying around you, all of various colors and varieties. Information about how they live, etc. Great for kids.

Very tranquil. You can only spend an hour, hour and half max in the centre due to size and heat. It was expensive (I thought) for what it was, but then it is for the upkeep of the place and it is beautiful and an experience. Would recommend a visit

This venue is very well organised. There are over 1500 free flying butterflies. All that you can roam with! The Big down side is you are not allowed or encouraged to touch these wonderful insects, which takes a bit away from the interactive nature of the event, as children often learn by doing and touching as a good learning strategy....

This is a lovely attraction. Its quite small and as you can expect very hot. Glad we went on a cold day in january , rather than a hot day in the summer. But we all thoughly enjoyed it. It came at a really useful time as my one daughter was doing a project on butterflies in school. Loved the... More

A huge greenhouse with tropical plants and thousands of butterflies. Really nice and interesting. The 1600 butterflies we saw in July were really beautiful. The whole park is just breathtaking for first sight. Was really exciting to hold the biggest butterflies of the world in my own hands. The coccoons of the specific butterflies are prersented behind a window. Live... More

Fairly compact place consisting of big area with free flying butterflys all sorts including very big ones and also includes some different stage butterflys. Helpful stuff and overall nice visit. Location is not close to the costa but instead up close to the main motorway so without car or taxi not so easy to reach. Right next door is the... More

The Butterfly Park is next to the Buddist Temple, so if you visit one, you must visit the other as well. Beautiful large creatures, differently coloured and marked all flying around. Moths, huge ones, sleeping during the day but with a very short lifespan. A small wallaby asleep at the back of some shrubs, not to mention the chameleon in... More

Firstly its not a park...Its a large indoor greenhouse....found outside the old village and across the road from the Buddhist temple. But on saying that it still took us about 2 hours to see everything. Once inside you step into a tropical rain forest type environment, so its a bit humid and sticky. There are regular talks from the keepers... More
