“Unique, beautiful, personal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2012

A one of a kind place. A city oasis. Amazing to see all stages of a butterfly fly unfolding in this lush city garden. The owner is very passionate. Although if you are not a nature-lover you may find it boring.

“Spend the morning there -”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2011

Fairly well run and with a gracious guide. It's a little hard to find. Taxi drivers didn't know where it was, but we find that everywhere. No beer or any kind of alcohol is available in their small restaurant, but there were soft drinks, coffee, and water there. Las mariposas were beautiful!

“interesting!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2011

This small little butterfly garden is piece of paradise in the big city. The Sunday morning staff (one teenager) managed to bridge the language barrier to give us enough information to get started. I can't say that we learned a lot, but we certainly enjoyed spending an hour with the all the butterflies, some toads and turtles, and one giant brown tarantula (who wasn't supposed to be there)!!
This place is worth the well effort it takes to find it (take a cab), and the $7 admission price!
