Bright flowered shirts attract butterflies

Loved having the big blue butterflies sitting on my shirt - really awesome. Go first thing in the morning, butterflies are just waking up, less crowded and cooler. A must see.

We stopped in for a nice 30 minute walk through of the butterfly nature conservatory. Some beautiful butterflies, pink flamingos, and other small creatures.

None of our group were particularly wild about butterflies but based on recommendations we decided to pay a visit. The visit starts with a very interesting video and the sanctuary itself was amazing. It houses hundreds of butterflies, birds and turtles. We especially liked the two flamingos - Rhett and Scarlett. Try and catch them having a shower! We would... More

Great place must put on your list to visit‼️ A well planned business with detail captured with every glance as I walked through magnificent sites of beautiful butterflies dancing about in the geodesic dome.

Go to the butterfly conservatory in the morning and you can come back for the rest of the day. Great way to make the pricey place more affordable for those with hotels nearby. The staff are friendly and the butterflies and birds are beautiful. Great place for kids and photos or to go when it's raining.

This was a great place but a little pricey. Did not get a chance to go inside the actual sanctuary but everything else was cool
