My wife and I have been wanting to check out this butterfly sanctuary since they opened, but COVID lockdowns delayed those plans a bit. We finally got out there this week, though, and it was well worth the visit!
It’s a little off the beaten path in PV, so it felt wonderfully remote. The garden and sanctuary itself is in a large tented enclosure, and it has a path that winds you past a ton of different plants, flowers, and decorations. Amid them, butterflies are flying, and the guide that walked us through pointed out butterfly eggs on the leaves, and tons of caterpillars that we never would’ve seen if we were alone. The guide we had also was incredibly knowledgeable about all stages of butterfly life, and they even let my wife and I release two butterflies that had just hatched that morning. Overall it was a wonderful experience and I highly recommend to visit and to support these guys.
If you go, just note that going earlier when they open is probably better (the guy at the garden even told us this). The butterflies were active for us, but they are more active in the morning. Plus, we went at 1pm in July, so it certainly was hot, especially since we were wearing masks. So if you go, perhaps consider going when they first open.
