I visited with a friend in February, and had a nice time. We went early, so it wasn't to crowded and also because I had seen from other reviews that the butterflied were only out in the morning. We did see a TON of butterflies which was amazing. The hike was really pretty, and we went all the way down to the lake which was quite a walk. For someone not in great shape or has trouble with uneven surfaces, this is definitely not for you. The monkeys were fun to see but a bit sad that they were caged. There was not too much water to see because it was the dry season. I would go back, it is not expensive and nice for a hike and picnic by the lake.
