I highly recommend it. Best hours are at 10, just when they open. Its small place, with nice staff and hundreds of butterflies. I could spend whole day there. You can see methamprphosis in vivo, have butterflies on the hand or just enjoy the environment.

If you love butterflies, this is a must! I loved every minute of it and I didn´t wanted to leave! You can´t touch their wings or to close your fist if they settle on your hand, but they´re very friendly!!! Enjoy!

The place is "officially" closed, but we were advised to ask if we could get in anyway and it was no problem. Great choice of soothing classical music set off the flight of hundreds of butterflies beautifully. Its one large room full of butterflies, and...More

We hoped to see the butterflies and the El Drago, but there was a recorded announcement in Spanish and in English stating that this attraction was closed due to a dispute with the local government officials. Very sad. Hope they resolve this issue.

We really enjoyed it ...the broadcast that is (in English and Spanish) berating the Icod public representative! Idiots no doubt as most such local government people are!
