What an experience! Had the chance to visit Green Hills, which by the way is now under new management. I had an amazing tour of all they do and had a chance to interact and spend time with the staff. What a smart bunch of people and the butterflies and displays are simply awesome. Do yourself a favor, stop in there, you will not be disappointed!

Spectacular! Jeronimo, our guide, is one of the most knowledgeable people I have met and he answered every question we had about the butterflies. You can really tell they care about the work that they do here. Everyone was hospitable and it was a lovely afternoon spent watching the butterflies and hummingbirds!! I highly recommend this place for anyone, especially those with kids!

This attraction was not on our itinerary but our driver/guide recommended it as we were passing fairly close by. We were so pleased he did, and had a wonderful visit with expert information from Robin, the owner. We saw so many species and were shown the different stages of pupae to caterpillar development. The humming birds were also exquisite and easily photographable from vantage spots.

A very knowledgeable guide will take you around and show you each habitat and each of the butterflies, what they eat, how long they live. Once you have taken as long as you wish wandering through their garden your guide will show you the hatching system they use to keep their House full. Then there are the hummingbirds we counted eight or nine different hummingbirds that come to their feeders.
