This garden may have been very good once but it is closing down because the owners cannot afford to buy chrysalis. As a consequence there are very few butterflies which was very disappointing in this tropical climate. They don't tell you any of this until you have paid your $12 per person! So be warned.

Truly enjoyed my time here at The Butterfly Garden. Located right next door to the pier, it made for a fun and convenient visit. From the outside it did not look like much but do not let this fool you. This was one of the best butterfly gardens that I have ever been to. Within the are where the butterflies... More

Definitely worth checking out. We found our tour very interesting, beautiful & exciting (nothing quite like having a butterfly land on you while visiting...it's supposed to denote good luck). Fun for all ages, close shopping, restaurants, easy to get to.

Our visit to this garden was exceptional and breath taking. I learned so much. We could not believe how the butterflies, by the dozen would upon you and stay for quite some time. Would highly recommend this attraction for everyone especially if you have children.

My husband and I were disappointed to miss seeing this attraction on our recent trip after buying tickets in advance. It isn't stated anywhere on the website or our tickets, but note that the butterfly garden is only open on days cruise ships are at port. We happened to be visiting by hotel when no cruise ships were due in.... More

Visited Butterfly Garden on a Disney Cruise shore excursion with a 3yo and 7yo. We enjoyed the garden, very pretty with many butterflies. Garden is somewhat small overall so your time may go by quick. You can sit and just watch the butterflies and relax, but can get a little warm. Staff was knowledgable and brought out many newly emerged... More

This place was right next to where our cruise ship docked. The price was reasonable. They have some unusual butterflies and are very aware of invasive species, they have a permit from the US government. If you are lucky some butterflies may land on you for a neat photo op.

I love butterfly's!!! The butterfly's were released while we were visiting and the staff will put them on you and you can get some great pictures. We went after leaving the beach so we were still wet and the butterfly's stay on you a lot longer!! Even my boyfriend enjoyed the trip.
