BUTTERFLY CONSERVATORY ARENAL COSTA RICA
A nature regeneration project dedicated to the preservation, growth, and study of the rainforest with emphasis on BUTTERFLIES . Here you can learn about the Life Cycle of the butterfly and it’s incredible metamorphosis experience. You can also view many species of frogs in their natural habitat. A knowledgeable guide will take you through six atrium habitats and teach how these creatures exist in the natural environment of the rain forest.
You’ll get a great work out by hiking along the Rainforest River Walk-takes about 45 minutes. If lucky you will see monkeys and a sloth.
The insect museum is a must for the curious. It is extensive and you need to allow about one-half hour to see it all. Entrance fee for the Butterfly Conservatory is approximately Twelve dollars per person.
To get to the Conservatory you should inquire for a tour at Desafio Tours in downtown La Fortuna Or simply hire a taxi to drive you, or if you have a rental car -it pretty easy to find. You take the “bad” dirt road to the left at the old police station (often there are no police here) . This station is located on the main road going north from downtown La Fortuna. Go past Tabacon Hot Springs and you are close. Watch for the dirt road which is only a left turn and this takes you to El Castillo and then follow the signs to the Butterfly Conservatory. Approx. 5-6 miles after you make the left turn. The dirt road forks just after you pass over the river bridge–hang a right here and you are on the correct road, a few miles to a little settlement of El Castillo.
