Costa Rica Butterfly Gardens
With a warm climate and year-round flowers, Costa Rica is an ideal habitat for butterflies. Approximately 90 percent of the butterfly species in Central America and 18 percent of all the world's species can be found in Costa Rica. Butterfly farms help preserve these beautiful creatures and also educate visitors about their growth cycle, eating habits, and colorful markings. Tours of butterfly farms are a hands-on educational experience that allow visitors to get close to both live butterflies and specimens.
