After a Day in the Gorgeous Cloud Forest and spotting the Beautiful Azul Morpho Mariposa-(Butterfly) we were recommended to go to Restaurante Morpho's by several locals! It was absolutely delightful to see the beautiful artwork including the Azul Morpho's Butterfly on the walls reminiscent of being in the cloud forest again while dining on delicious cuisine!!! Just Lovely!!!

Beautiful decor and delicious food. Took awhile to serve but we were a large party. Bringing the dessert options took so long though, we decided to forgo dessert and got up to pay.
