If you're looking for a fun and informative adventure for the whole family while visiting Costa Rica, look no further than the butterfly garden tour at the Danaus Eco-Center! Here you'll have a chance to get up close and personal with more than 20 species of butterflies, among them the Monarch butterfly (Danaus plexippus) for which the center is named. Learn all about what makes each species so wonderfully diverse, including their eating, resting, and migratory habits.
The Danaus Eco Center has created an excellent habitat in which the butterflies can live and breed so that we can all appreciate their unique beauty while expanding our knowledge of how we can best preserve their numbers for years to come. Our expert naturalist guides will ensure you get the most out of your eco tour experience. The goal of the Danaus Eco-Center biological reserve is to develop environmental education and sustainable production conservation programs for the community, and a tour through the butterfly garden is a great example of this goal in action.
