Great for kids and Adults
Oct. 2020
Great spot, especially for kids. It's not big, but it's clean, well run and lovely. My 5 year old daughter had some much fun the first time there, she begged to go again so much we ended up a few weeks later. Easily spend an hour or 2 just hanging out with the butterflies. You can pick them up and some may even land on you.

Great experience for adults and kids. Butterflies born at home!
Mar. 2019
It's a great place to enjoy the nature, relax and learn something. Pleasant people.

You can even buy a chrysalis and watch the butterfly being born at your home. (Of course, you will want to let it fly away to its natural habitat in Costa Rica.) The experience is incredible, be you an adult or a kid.

Highly recommended.

For Grandkids Delight

Took grandsons (their 3rd time) to Butterfly Kingdom. Quick tour was informative and kept their interest. Then they spent next 45 minutes marveling at and "catching" butterflys, while I enjoyed the serenity (classical music background).

A nice and relaxing place

A cute little spot to watch butterflies right in the middle of the city. You can spend an hour or so with the kids learning about butterflies and feeding them.

Apr. 2019 • Family
This is a must do for families staying in Escazu! We have taken our 2 year old daughter twice now and she loves it! Beautiful grounds, very well maintained and tons of butterflies!!! There are even swings for little ones to enjoy, a turtle pond, charming details everywhere you look. The butterflies and so numerous it's easy to get one to land on you if you want for a photo. A magical place so close to the city. Enjoy!!!

Butterflies - Close Up and Personal
Feb. 2019 • Family
My wife and I took our 3-year-old grandson to the Butterfly Kingdom in Escazu. The flight cage is not that large and does not have a huge variety of species, being predominantly filled with many Blue Morpho butterflies.

It seems to be a popular spot for locals as well as tourists. The staff are very friendly and give an informative tour to explain the life histories of the butterflies to visitors both young and old. There are nectar sticks that can be used to attract the butterflies and have them settle on your skin for closer examination and photographic opportunities. Feeding trays of fresh fruit are covered with the butterflies and if you want a shot in a more natural setting, the flight cage is planted with nectar plants. The pupal forms are on display around the enclosure.

We spend a couple of hours here, mostly sitting and watching the kaleidoscope of fluttering color around us. It is definitely worth a visit.

Great place
May 2018 • Family
I recently went with my mother and baby and we really enjoyed it. The staff is very friendly, well informed and helpful. The place is a bit small, but there are tons of different butterflies and it is very well kept and peaceful. It is great if you want to relax without leaving the city.

Really educational and beautiful
Jan. 2018 • Couples
This is a wonderful place to visit for an hour and a half or so. We were alone when we visited, and got a very through explanation of the various butterflies we saw, as well as various details about their life cycles. This was a great opportunity for photos. The only difficulty was getting transportation back into San Jose - our Uber couldn't find the place, and there weren't taxis around. It also has a different, higher price for tourists than locals.
