Butterfly Tour

Back to Activities Index

Tour begins with a 5 minute walk until arriving at a mural in the middle of the forest, where the guide will use the images on the mural to explain the greater part of the lives of these interesting insects.  You will then proceed to visit the interior of the garden where the butterflies develop in their natural environment.  Here you will be able to observe  them flying, eating, or even with a little luck, being born. 

Your guide will explain how each species survives in their natural habitat: where they live, what they feed on, the way in which they defend themselves from predators, how they reproduce, as well as the important role they play in nature and why we have to protect them. The tour lasts about one hour.

In all you will visit 3 cubicles 120 square meters each.  The first one contains the reproduction laboratory, the next the larger species and the last the smaller species, but all equally interesting and full of color by the presence of the butterflies as by the plants and flowers in the gardens.


Recommendations:  Comfortable shoes, camera.

Cost:  Adults, children and students: $12.00

Times:  8:00 am, 11:00 am, 1:00 pm, 3:00 pm
