  • Closed for renovation at the end of October. People at the front counter were quite curt. Figured it’d be helpful to share before you decide to go.

  • This was a super cute place to go. There were so many butterflies. It was a very nice experience. There are a lot of stairs so it was also a good workout. I loved seeing butterflies land on people and how excited they got. Nice waterfall as well. The area is very humid so also be aware of that but overall very beautiful.
  • Nice stop on our vacation. Butterflies are always nice to see. What I loved, but didn't expect, was the iguana just chilling on the wall. He'd just look around and then go back to napping. When you look up you get a good view of the butterflies just flying around inside the glass dome. Pretty good list of species too. Watching them hatch and flap to unfurl their wings was great. 😊 Sorry for the lack of pictures inside the done but I didn't want to miss the experience.
