We hoped to see the butterflies and the El Drago, but there was a recorded announcement in Spanish and in English stating that this attraction was closed due to a dispute with the local government officials. Very sad. Hope they resolve this issue.

We really enjoyed it ...the broadcast that is (in English and Spanish) berating the Icod public representative! Idiots no doubt as most such local government people are!

I really wanted to visit this place but when we arrived there is a message from a loud speaker to say the park is closed due to issues with town officials.

A small butterfly park was a nice experience. I liked lots of blooming tropical plants there. Ticket is valid for all day but we spent about half an hour and it was enough.

I liked the atmosphere there, relaxing music and flying butterflies. The garden is not big but enough. It opens at 10.00, not 9.00 as I have read before. Upstairs from the building there is the oldest dragon tree. Did not see any dead butterflies that...More

We visited this place as a rainy day option. The mariposario is small but offers good explanation to visitors from all ages (we travelled with a 6 year old). The keepers were very friendly and open to questions.

Smaller than I thought it would be, but a well laid out tropical garden with plenty of butterflies. Very peaceful. €8.50 entrance is too much.
