    I have a nephew that loves bugs and so loves this place. It's gorgeous and there is a tarantula that will make your skin crawl. You can't miss out!

    Try to go during the early morning - butterflies are much more active.

    Try to go on warmer days, if it's too cold outside the butterflies won't be as active.
