Incredible to see so many butterflies in one place. It seemed to be the only place we really saw them in all of Ecuador. Great education for kids (and adults) on the different stages, and just a very pleasant spot to observe and photograph butterflies.
Very nice and enjoyable garden. The introduction on the stages of metamorphosis was nicely presented with pictures, but could be a bit more elaborate on the different types of caterpillars and their habitat. Inside the garden it was great to see how the kids where attracting the butterflies with bits of banana. They could have stayed there for hours.
We had a pleasant walk up from town, on entry we had a short and helpfull introduction about the life cycle of a butterfly,once we entered we all went ..."Ah...wow.." Lots of beautiful butterflies flying around you and even coming to perch on your hands , heads,clothing....plenty of good photo oportunities, you can see the life cycle of a butterfly... 更多
this place is very beautiful and relaxing we visited the butterfly gardens for a few hours before having lunch at their restaurant. The gardens were wonderfully peaceful both the inside butterfly gardena and the outside ones were you can bird watch, and the food was excellent.
This is a small area with much to see. You can observe butterflies emerging, drying, and flying away. The butterflies land on people, and my grandson had four on him at once.
A must if you travel to Mindo. What a fantastic experience. We saw two butterflies being born while we were visiting. Super well kept. My kids had a blast!
This was a great experience. There were tons of beautiful butterflies and they would even sit on your hand and eat banana juice. Great information about the butterfly lifespan. The grounds were beautiful. It was a peaceful and calming place, I would love to come here again.
