We went today, Dec 1st, 2015. If you can negotiate the Romancing the Stone 'esq type bridge you'll find it is currently closed so don't let anyone tell you it is. When it does open I doubt they'll have much in there. Cool leaf cutter ants on the trail though.

Quaint and cool

we had a lot of rainy days and were looking for some fun things to do. This is a very cute place and it's about a 10 minute boat ride from colon. The guy who owns it or works there was very sweet and gave us a tour. Butterfly hide out when it rains so best to go on a sunny day or expect to see about 4 butterfly. Very cool place that being said. Just make sure you have a taxi planned ahead of time to pick you up on your return.

Sorry, but not worth it!

The place is beautiful, especially the mangrove when you arrive by boat, and the trees surrounding the property, which I took the liberty to explore, while waiting for our boater to return, but instead of the so many butterfly species announced in travel guides, you can see barely 5 or 6, and the place really looks neglected. Keep your 5$ for something better!

Not much to see anymore

Don't waste your money. There is maybe 3-4 butterflies to see. The overall condition of the place is very poor and it costs $5 to enter a tiny dome with a few butterflies.

Small but interesting

A 5 minute boat ride from Bocas town further along the island, but not possibel to get there by road or path, the Butterfy garden is small, but you can walk into the 'tent' itself among the butteflies. Sit and watch them fly about and rest. Great for taking photographs. The life history of butterflies can also be followed, and tiny frogs can be seen outsdie the garden. Make sure you wear lots of repellent, particularly round feet and ankles. The san flies are nasty.

Bocas Butterful Garden

Awesome! Come support a local spot. Quiet & feels like you're in the middle of the jungle & it's just a short stroll from Bocas marina. Louis, the owner & Antonio showed us around & explained all the phases of butterflies. They also have a terrarium w/ frogs. And we also spotted a sloth! Fabulous photo opportunity.

Nice place but not a lot to see
Mar 2012
As others have said, you need to take a water taxi here (cost us $2 each both ways = $8 total) then $5 each to get in. There's a butterfly enclosure which is nice to have them flying around you, but there are only really 2 species and not a huge amount of them. Then there is a tank of brightly coloured frogs to look at too, and that's it. We didn't get a tour, as no one was around who spoke English, so we were done in 30 minutes and that was with a lot of strolling. Overall, a nice little place but be aware of what you get for your $18.

When the sun is shining, Must DO!

Bocas Butterfly Garden is an early morning adventure on a sunny day. The Garden is located by the Bocas Marina, a 5 minute water taxi from town. You will be greeted and taken on a tour to experience the many stages and plant life that butterflies depend on to survive and populate. A great adventure for individuals or families. Ask you Receptionist or visit Reception at Hotel Parque.

Sweet little butterfly house
Feb 2012
Don't expect much but this was a sweet little butterfly farm and the guy working there showed us some caterpillars and some frogs. Nice way to while away a few hours! The butterflies were really beautiful and we had the whole place to ourselves. FYI - you need to take a water taxi there and best to call and check that they're open.

BUTTERFLY GARDEN IN BOCAS DEL TORO
What nice and beautiful garden. If you are planning to visit the isl beautiful paradise, please don't forget to go to the Butterfly Garden, is very close from the island. It is an incredible place with the most beautiful butterflies I had ever seen.
Thank you for have this place.
