Admire and have fun in Mindo's unique butterfly interactive garden, learning the 4 stages of a butterfly's life. In the exhibition area you can experience the feeding of 25 colorful butterfly species and observe about 1,200 butterflies at the same time flying around and landing on you.
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.
Bring a camera for great photo opportunities.
Try to visit in the mornings from 10am to 12 pm because that's when it's usually sunnier and butterflies will be flying around. Great for all kinds of travelers: kids, seniors, and families included!
