We loved bringing our kids here (2 and 5). So many beautiful butterflies to see plus the turtles and fish! The only reason I only gave it 4 stars out of 5 is because of the price. For how long we were there it didn't...More

The butterflies are the definite attraction here. It is fabulous having them fly all around you while you walk through the interior garden. Sometimes they even land on you, especially if you are wearing bright colours and standing still. It is a tropical environment, so...More
