We organize the Drake Bay Butterfly Garden Tour for you, so you can have peace of mind during your stay at Drake Bay Getaway.
Drake Bay Getaway resort not only has rustic luxury accommodation and a top-notch restaurant and café. We also have Drake Bay Butterfly Garden—the first and only public butterfly garden in the entire Osa Peninsula!
Both hotel guests and locals alike can relax and enjoy the sight of these colourful and remarkable creatures. The garden is open from 9am until 5pm and contains 300 square meters of native Costa Rican plants and many different butterfly species found in the Osa Peninsula.
The butterfly tour teaches you about the fascinating lifecycle of the butterfly and gives you the chance to watch them feeding and fluttering about in beautifully landscaped surroundings.
Currently, the garden houses seven species of butterflies; The electric blue Morpho, the nocturnal Owl butterfly, the Thoas and Black Swallowtails, as well as four types Longwings; all with dramatic and brightly coloured patterns.
We are constantly working on our butterfly collection. The Drake Bay Butterfly Garden was approved by the Costa Rican Ministry of Environment, Energy and Technology (MINAET) for as many as 31 different species of local butterflies!
It's the perfect place to wander through on a relaxing morning or afternoon after a world-class coffee or delicious desert.
Guests at Drake Bay Getaway Resort can visit the Drake Bay Butterfly Garden an unlimited number of times, free of charge.
