Superbe expérience vécue dans les grandes volieres au milieu de papillons de toute sorte ,des fleurs, une visite en anglais avec une guide intarissable au débit trop rapide! Trop pressée, si pressée..... more »Superb experience in the big aviaries in the midst of butterflies of all kinds, flowers, a visit in English with an intarable Guide to the flow too fast! Too much in a hurry... that she lost in a maze of allees some of her visitors! So we were able to enjoy a maximum of all these ruffles of wings at our pace! And the presence in the garden of the Armadillo with 9 strips! What happiness I tell you!
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.
