Pretty walk through, though small. Different species of butterflies and cute humming birds. There is also a short informative video. You can also buy some local crafts. Good value

Very small place, only about 10 species of butterflies. Tour done in less than 1/2 hour. I thought it was a big place with many butterflies. Many other countries have bigger butterfly havens than this one. Location is not conspicuous because signage is lousy in...More
