The Selvatura Park has many offerings for travellers and botany enthusiasts, and the Butterfly Garden is worth including on your visit. With plenty of flowers and a variety of butterflies, it's an interesting and educational place to experience the unique nature in the area.

Learned so much and loved seeing the butterflies up close. The blue morpho is amazing with its camouflage underneath and blue above.
