The entrance fee is $6 per person but is free if you staying at the hotel. There are quite a few different types of butterflies and the volunteers are informative regarding the lifespan of the butterfly and all different butterfly facts. It is a nice little place, worth a visit.

We (my mom and I) read about the Mariposario B&B on a blog I frequent, refinery29 and decided to stay there for our time in Costa Rica. We stayed a week in the Morpho room and had the best time! Our room had a small balcony overlooking the butterfly garden and it was quiet. The butterfly garden was absolutely overflowing... More

Not much to do in this town so this is definitely worth a trip. The butterfly Sanctuary is darling and interesting. The owners are also attempting a brewery - the Beer is great - def worth a visit.

This B&B is inexpensive and has everything you would need. The breakfast and staff were excellent! I was even able to get a glass of great craft beer(micro-brew) with lunch or dinner. I will definitely stay here again when I visit Costa Rica for the second time.

Went her with my now wife and was always looking for a great place to propose, this was it. Lovely butterflies and caterpillars, flowers and paths. Perfect for a nice time out together and a romantic walk. A lot of uphill travel to get here though, but so worth it

I visited the butterfly garden with my sister and we were able to view the different stadiums of a butterfly life. They fly around the whole area and we could make nice pictures of them.

The food is great. Love the ambiance: lots of wood and a very casual feel. Beer was yummy. I recommend the chicken mole.

If you have a car this shouldn't be a problem, but we had to walk up a pretty steep street. The garden was nice, the stuff showed us around. It has student prices and there is a nice restaurant with.
