Our guide was knowledgeable and kind. The tour was informative. And we had plenty of time to hang out with the butterflies. They landed all over us - magical afternoon!

This place is certainly worth a visit if you are visiting El Valle de Anton and have a hour to spend.

The ticket price was really fair considering the show. The guide wad really fun and informative and to our surprise, could speak few phrases of Finnish.

We actually learned many new things about butterflies, their lifecycle, colouring and of course saw multiple new ones.

Thank you!

Make sure to listen to the tour, enjoy the butterflies and know that you are supporting a local establishment. We loved this place and were super impressed with professionalism, great upkeep and the mini lecture on butterflies, we learned a lot!

Awesome if you love butterflies
Feb. 2020
We loved visiting this place, there were butterflies EVERYWHERE, they came and landed on you and stuff, it was really cool. The staff were very knowledgeable and told all all about butterflies in English, and they had lots of things to show us too. BEWARE you can't go in with bug spray on. We'd just covered ourselves in bug spray and had to wash it all off before we could go in, and even then the staff were concerned we hadn't got it all off and limited our time in there, which was a shame. Go here first, then bug spray for the day after (would have been handy to know in advance, there are no signs or anything to tell you)

Interesting and informative introductory, brief lecture. Lots of respect for nature and the metamorphosis process. Beautiful butterflies in small enclosed area. Well worth a visit when in the area.

One of the best investments of your time in El Valle de Anton, Panama
Feb. 2020
The initial video presentation was very interesting and clearly explained. Very good value and great for the whole family, especially the opportunity to make spectacular photos of many different species. There is no rush in getting through the tour of the enclosed butterfly sanctuary. Kudos to the owners for perpetuating and teaching about these fascinating animals. Gives another perspective. Put it on your Valle de Anton, Panama agenda of places to visit.

Well worth your time

Went with my wife and 14 and 11 year old daughters. The guides were well trained and spoke excellent English. There were lots of butterflies and one hummingbird. We had lots of time to take photos. One of the best values we found in Panama.
