We did the ziplining tour, the views are incredible! I think the best time to do the tour will be during June-August when it is raining season and the everything is green!

I have been coming to this place for the past 5 years and have always loved the experience of flying through the trees! This is good for adults and children with the youngest being 6 years old. Great experience!

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...More

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...More

The butterfly sanctuary is a part of the larger Atlitlan Nature Reserve and was a very fun experience for my daughters who were 3 and 4 at the time we visited. The reserve overall is a lot of fun and very educations as well.

This was very nice and an added bonus to the Atitlan Nature reserve. It was well groomed, but no many varieties of butterfly’s there on the day we visited, but still nice.

June seems a good time to visit this exhibit....lots of butterflies! Not worth a separate trip, but if you're doing the zip line, take the time to walk through it.

Just outside Panajachel in Guatemala. We took a tuk tuk to get there, but walked back. It took about an hour. There is a butterfly "garden" there, and you can go zip lining, which we did. It's a lot of fun! If you hire a cab... More
