There are plenty of buterflies to see in this park. However, it gets a bit boring after a while. There is a good presentation every hour. Plenty of photo' opportunities, but all the same. It may be just me, but after fifteen minutes, I had seen all I wanted to. I am not sure that kids would be entertained for... More

I took my 3 kids today to visit the butterfly farm, costing $30 euros for 2 Adults and 3 kids. We spent over an hour viewing all the plants, butterflies and lizards on show. Beautiful place with free Wifi, shop and cafe on site. The bonus was the view opposite the butterfly farm, overlooking the costa coast and a free... More

Great natural environment with 25+ species of butterflies with wing spans up to 20cm. Also a chameleon (caged), marsupial, and two iguanas roaming. It is fairly small but still easy to spend a couple hours here without noticing. Some truly stunning specimens.

Visited last week with the kids and really enjoyed it. There are many different types of butterflies inside and also a wallaby, birds, koi carp and iguanas! The kids were given a chart to try and find all of the different butterflies and this kept them active and interested throughout our time there. The talk about the different types of... More

A small attraction that takes about half an hour. It's a long way out and there is no station near. There is a local bus though. Quite expensive for a 10m X 10m room with butterflies in.

This is a very nice butterfly park but I agree with other reviewers it is overpriced. Similar parks in the UK are about half the price. That said the staff are friendly and knowledgeable and there is an abundance of wildlife from butterfly to iguana. It would be a great rainy day option for families on holiday.

Went here one morning just for a change of swimming all day. We were back at the pool just after lunch. Kids are 6 and 2 and loved it. Thousands of butterflies flying around you and on entering you get a check list so you have to try spot different coloured ones. There is an amazing view outside this park... More

It doesn't justify the cost of entrance. One greenhouse with the butterflies and a few other animals. Could do a lot more with the land to enhance the visit. Expensive if thats all you get for your entrance fee

It was smaller then I thought but actually as you become obsessed with following each species of butterfly to study and photograph them, you spend time going round. Beautiful creatures. Well run. Great apple pie!

Took my 3 children all under 4 & they loved it! Saw other animals in there too. Nice place to walk round & butterflies actually landed on your hands.
