Nicely kept garden with lots of butterflies flitting around. Doesn't take long to wander the small area but it's a nice place to explore for about 30 minutes in between lunch and your next margarita.

Our guide told us the story of how this butterfly conservatory was created. Especially since butterflies are not native to the Keys. They are all flown in from all over the country. It's a great place to spend some time exploring nature.

This is your chance to study many kinds of butterflies in one place. You are not hurried, in fact you have all day. You may leave and reenter at any time on the same day. Many families were going through with absolute no problem which surprised me. Sso take your young children.

Recommended to us by another vacationer. Great for all ages. See beautiful butterflies and small birds among lush surroundings. Worth the price of admission. Also, a great place to go if the weather is cloudy or rainy because you feel like you are outside.
