After a long trip by car over treacherous and at some places very bad roads we arrived at the farm, but it is closed PERMANENTLY. So save yourself the difficult trip! (And nobody at our hotel knew it was closed....)

This place closed in October and has no stated reopening date. I am not sure why, but check before you go. I only gave it a 3 rating because it is closed. It may be great or not if it ever reopens.

You have to time your arrival with the hatching of the butterflies. The population goes down before the eggs hatch. We did get to see some beautiful butterflies including the Postman (my fav) and the Blue Morpho (son's fav).

A little bit out of the way and difficult to get to. A cab from San Ignacio cost us $50 usd for the return trip. Our timing wasn't very good and the Owner was a bit angry about that, luckily the husband saved our day...More

This is a special place, almost magical to one who really didn't know much about butterflies before visiting. Our main objective was bird watching but we were highly encouraged by the owners to take their tour. We were so glad we did. Days later, we're...More
