Butterflies of Costa Rica

The Monteverde butterfly garden is a fantastic place to admire butterflies and learn more about them and other insects. 


The four stages of the life of a butterfly can be observed, from the eggs solidly glued by the female underneath a leaf, to the larva (caterpillar), the pupa (chrysalis) and of course the adult butterfly that one can observe flying around and feeding on nectar a from tropical flowers in one of the four habitats present at the butterfly garden.
