  • It is a really nice way to spend an afternoon here. You learn a lot about butterflies and frogs. The walk in the conservatory is really nice, a little bit hilly, but not to bad. The entree was around 12$.
  • This is a great place to see Blue Morpho butterflies as well as several brreds of frog, including the red eyed tree frog famous in Costa Rica. The volunteer working here was very knowledgeable and friendly. A must see if you are in the area.
