The butterfly farm was a small but awesome experience. Our guide was friendly and patient. He was super knowledgeable and answered all our questions. We were allowed to stay as long as we wanted and definitely worth the price! Also the hummingbirds were amazing

After a long trip by car over treacherous and at some places very bad roads we arrived at the farm, but it is closed PERMANENTLY. So save yourself the difficult trip! (And nobody at our hotel knew it was closed....)

This place closed in October and has no stated reopening date. I am not sure why, but check before you go. I only gave it a 3 rating because it is closed. It may be great or not if it ever reopens.
