“Small but Plentiful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

I was really excited about this and was not disappointed. There were many butterflies of different varieties as well a several new ones that I had never seen before. They have a building with the caterpillars and chrysalises so you can see the butterflies at different stages. Quite lovely!

“Best time ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2012

This is worth every penny. Don't miss it. This is in Lake Atitlan and it is a very nice walk. I also recommend the zip lining or the extreme cables.

“Butterflies galore”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2012

When I went, there were hundreds and hundreds of different butterflies flying around. It was magical. I've been told since that they are out and about in the morning. Good thing to know, otherwise, it can be pretty boring.
