    We are an educational facility that has been operating for over 25 years. As one of the first tourist attractions in Monteverde we have a long standing reputation for excellent tours and beautiful gardens.

    This opportunity will give you the chance to experience Butterfly husbandry. Much plant care and watering goes into keeping butterflies happy. If you would like to get dirty in Costa Rica surrounded by beautiful bugs, then this is your place!
