Loved the butterfly house best I have ever visited. Orchid garden was awesome. Iguanas were everywhere added to the fun. They have a tram that runs on the hour. Volunteers were very helpful.

This place is much nicer than I expected, and I saw the other reviews on Trip Advisor. You really need to take the time to visit this place and tour the facility including the butterfly exhibit. My favorite was the collection of orchids.

A beautiful place to spend a few hours walking around. Truly gorgeous and relaxing. You can take a tour or just wander. Or both. If you are hungry, there is a decent cafe as well. Highly recommended as a Miami destination.
