As part of a day outing sponsored by our village we came here. It was my first time although I had wanted to come for the longest time. Very interesting with three different habitats. We did not spend enough time since I got into taking photos of the butterflies. Bring a macro lens if you have one.

This place was really fun, the tropical domes with butterflies and tropical birds in were beautiful and I didn't even know freshwater stingrays existed! The nocturnal section was rather pungent (I suspect the bats) but cool to see sloths and armadillos wandering about. Only downside was that the ocelot didn't seem to be very happy in its rather small enclosure.

Was an excellent encounter with hundreds of spectacular butterflies in a Tropical set up..!! I felt at Home Away from Home! It felt special to walk through the Nocture Dome and the jungle as well. Best place for experiencing Nature at its best while offering a just for any visitor to get involved Environmental awareness.

At first I thought the expensive tickets, because he thought so go see butterflies. As I was watching the various habitats that idea disappeared and emotion increased. It is worth the visit, worth the price and I'm thinking to back here. I was blown away. Thank God, the creator!

A lovely cafe but you can take your own picnic if you prefer. Colouring area. And a shop for those little souvenirs. This attraction suits all ages even the tiny... More

From the route we saw a kind of flying saucer, we felt attracted by it. This was the Papiliorama venue. The place is perfect for family and even couples. Very interesting discovery of beautiful butterfly, exotic animal and even experience to be in South America Forest!

Overall an enjoyable experience....good family day for all ages out especially on a cold winters day. The butterflies were impressive and we had fun trying to spot them on the trees.The Nocturama was also a different experience although the kids had more fun running around in the dark than looking for animals. There is a petting zoo outside, aswell as... More
