Arenal, Monteverde, and the Northern Lowlands Sights

Butterfly Garden (Jardín de Mariposas)

  • Zoo/Aquarium

Fodor's Review

Forty species of butterflies flit about in four enclosed botanical gardens. Morning visits are best, since the butterflies are most active early in the day. Your entrance ticket includes an hour-long guided tour under tin roofs, meaning you won't get wet on rainy days. Be sure to visit the nonprofit gift shop benefiting the local community.
