Beautiful Butterflies Farm in Mindo - Mariposario Jul 17, 2009
I didn't know that, but Ecuador has a large number of butterflies and here you can find 25 species flying inside the 644m2 greenhouse. This one is the biggest exhibition center in the country.
At the beginning they will explain you the life of a butterfly and show the different stages, finally you will go into the greenhouse, where you can admire this colorful creatures. You can stay there as long as you want, just taking pictures and watching how the butterflies eat the bananas and other fruits. Just be patient and keep eyes wide open to see as many as possible.
Butterflies are usually shy, but here they are used to people, so don't be surprised if they decide to take a break on your shoulder. That happened to me :)
This experience is great and highly recommended. Furthermore is soooo cheap...
Part of the First time in Ecuador, but definitely not the last one :) travel blog
