The butterfly house is on the campus of Hosteria Mariposas de Mindo, a full service hotel. The exhibition has more butterfly species and other creatures flying in its facilities than anywhere else around and has become a must-go attraction in Mindo. The garden works hard to foster the longevity of species and part of the butterfly production is released into the environment to provide a balance in the ecosystem.

This attraction is on the way to the Mindo Canopy base camp and to the cable car to the waterfalls
