The butterfly reserve was really beautiful. People have commented that it's good for kids, but it's also good for the elderly. It's peaceful and relaxing and you can just sit and watch. They also have an educational part at the end where they show you the larvae and cocoons. The Nature Reserve is right next to Hotel Atitlan, so we... 更多
I love the hanging bridges, the tall waterfall, the shade coffee, the history of the place, the beautiful butterflies, and the area of kids to play. The trails are not very long, but they lead you through exquisite places. Overall it's a lovely place to get away from the hustle-bustle and relax with a good hike. Best to eat before... 更多

When we booked to stay at Hotel Atitlan, we didn't know the nature preserve was near by. We just happened to have some free time in our schedule so we walked over to check it out. After walking around for a bit, we got to the Butterfly Sanctuary. What a great experience that was.
The Butterfly Sanctuary was one of my highlights of the trip! The butterfly house itself is quite small but it doesn't take a huge space to be happy, since it is filled with many different types of butterflies flying around you. You have to watch your step, since they sometimes rest on the pathway. We then continued to explore the... 更多
