  • A well-informed guide took us through an impressive collection of bugs, followed by a walk through the beautiful butterfly gardens. Worth it if you have an hour or two to spare in Monteverde. It’s a little way out of town, walkable, probably easiest by taxi.
  • Beautiful Little Sanctuary for Butterflies! If you're looking for a beautiful little spot to explore while in Monteverde, this is a good option. The garden is home to many flowers, and butterflies. It was very interesting how unique, intricate and delicate the pattern of a butterfly's wings, and how these butterflies coexist with other little critters in the area. To add a little extra, their friendly staff members are always ready to make your visit enjoyable.
