Not many butterfly's but the day I went was quite smoky from some sort of vegetation fire. Good descriptions of the butterflies and nice vegetation. If going solely for the butterflies you may be disappointed. Very nice cafe onsite with great coffee with nice gift...More

Visited here as part of package at Inkaterra Amazonica. Quaint butterfly sanctuary with a small cafe with Wifi. Butterflies are pretty and plentiful. Visit time is about 30 minutes. It is literally a 5-min walk to airport in Puerto Maldonado. Nice place.

The butterfly garden is beautiful! The plants within are worth the price of admission. Right next to the airport so there's no excuse to miss it!

We would not have stopped but our shuttle to the airport had it scheduled - it was lovely and a good short term visit.

We visited here at the end of the holiday as it is very close to the airport, stunning butterflies up close and great photo opportunities. Small but beautifully run and inexpensive.

It seemed that the stop here was only about killing some time before the flight. The facility was large and there were several species. It was self guided with no staff interaction.

A quick stop before you head home. You will be swarmed by an array of butterflies and beautiful flowers. There is bar and clean restrooms. You will have time before your flight - trust me

Lots of colourful butterflies. We would have been dazzled by the array of butterflies here had we not been to Iguazu Falls days earlier -- where we saw hundreds of butterflies out in the open. Still it was a treat to see a wide spectrum...More

El Mariposario Tambopata esta abierto a todo el publico local, nacional y extranjero desde el 16 de Febrero. Es falso que el acceso este restringido.
