The Butterfly Farm in La Guácima
At the Butterfly Farm you can see all phases of a butterfly’s life, from egg to caterpillar to larva to butterfly. Watch them crawling, pupating, munching, sipping, chasing each other, mating, fluttering, drinking, fighting the wind, resting, and just hanging around. The Butterfly Farm has been in business for 25 years, and is Costa Rica’s largest exporter of tropical butterflies. La Guácima is justly famous for its butterfly farm, and the supergraphics around town are a colorful reminder that these inspiring creatures are never far away.
