A Boy Butterfly Farm in Costa Rica

Brendan and I took a great rainforest canopy zip line and butterfly farm tour in Quepos, Costa Rica with a great tour company called Canopy Safari. For around $60 bucks we were able to zip line through 10 long crazy fun zip lines and descend down ropes and fly through the air and have an amazing delicious lunch at the end, a full 4 hour adventure.
 I particularly loved walking through a lush tropical rain forest amidst flowers and trees, ponds and butterflies flying overhead and all around you in their own natural paradise. Within a large meshed enclosures you can see hundreds of real exotic butterflies flying freely, with dozens of the most spectacular species from all over the world. You can also witness all stages of their life cycle from tiny egg to curious caterpillar and jewel like pupa. Early in the morning is the best opportunity to see a butterfly emerging from its pupa and watch newborn butterflies take their first flight! If you want to handle the butterflies and caterpillars their friendly guides will be happy to show you how to do so without damaging these fragile creatures.

The tour of the farm is different in each season; it depends entirely on the climatic conditions and breeding habits of butterflies. The tourists with accommodations at San Jose are picked up and guided into Butterfly Farm where thousands of butterflies can be seen fluttering. The guide explains about the life-cycle of these lovely creatures. Some of the tourists that can manage early in the morning are able watch butterflies coming out of their pupa. Many of these pupae are also used for exportation to other parts of the world. A butterfly gift shop present in the vicinity offers a number of gifts and books related to natural history.
