Pricey but nice to see so many butterflies

Staff at reception was ok. We had to pay 7.50 dollars a person (not for kids under 4 years of age). So that is pricey. Inside it's not too big but big enough and loads of... read more

Inside it's not too big but big enough and loads of butterflies sitting and swirling around everywhere. It made me happy looking at them. We spent nearly a good hour to make pictures and to... More

My husband and I spent a couple of hours at the Butterfly Garden and we loved it. It was very romantic, magical, special... What a great place. It is also very educational and we saw several families with their children there.

Many types of butterflies, as well as observing butterflies in all stages of their lifecyle; hatching, living, mating and so forth. The hummingbird out front are also a treat if you do not have time to visit the hummingbird casa. Great for all ages - kids especially and adults who have not been to a similar butterfly house.

While in Mindo, my tour guide Pablo from AndeanRoots Travel Agency mentioned that we had to stop at this butterfly garden to see its beauty. I have gone to many buttery gardens in the states; but, this garden had so many butterflies, so much variety and beauty. There were plenty of places to sit and enjoy the butterflies and take...

Amazing to be that close to so many butterflies. Better than ones we have been to in the US. Worth the stop.

Walking into the butterfly room was not even close to what I expected. My kids both teenagers were amazed. The number of them flying and landing on you. Highlight of the days tour. Will remember that for a long time. Worth the drive from Quito.
