This is an excellent place to visit - the guide was so informative and friendly, and we got to see a wide range of insects up close, as well as butterflies. Really enjoyable.

Hadrian was a wonderful, informative and personable guide. We got to touch and learn about many creatures we would have otherwise run away from. Well worth the visit.

This was one of the highlights of our Monteverde visit. It's a short walk from Santa Elena and a little hidden, but totally worth the trip (or a $3 cab ride). There's more than butterflies too, with tarantulas, beetles and stick insects to name a...More
