Beautiful area and has a relaxing feeling, we have went a few times now and this place is a definitely a gem! The staff that work there are friendly and they are always ready to answer a question. They show you the life of a butterfly from start to end. They have an array of different species of Butterflies and you even get to walk around in a greenhouse filled with beautiful flowers and Butterflies that fly around you. I highly recommend you visit at least once.
Must see these shops. A butterfly house with butterflies native only to SE Florida. caterpillars, and a daily newly emerged butterfly release. There's a gardening shop where you can purchase butterfly and gardening items. This shop has a seed and plant swap also. There is also a little cafe with refreshing drinks and tasty eats. Oh and don't forget the native plants for sale at the butterfly house. The butterfly house sells caterpillars including Monarch caterpillars.
This is an interesting excursion. Butterflies aviary, native a d organic vegetable plants and butterfly friendly species. We really enjoyed the Bullig Cafe here. The German owner is passionate and engaging. She KNOWS coffee like few others do. I would suggest being able to order eggs in the normal ways. As it is, we can only order poached. Also, if you are on a keto/paleo diet, you will have to work with them to put together a plate for you. They were nice about it, and the food was good. That said, our side orders of bacon were almost cold when served. Cripsy. Yes. Hot? No. Hey. It happens. Dog friendly place, and well run if you are not in a hurry..
Always a favorite place to go. Highly recommended. Wonderful place for some serenity. The staff are always so helpful and ready to teach you.
Like walking into Heaven. Perfect place to go and distress and relax. The butterflies are abundant and friendly as well as interesting to watch. The staff is friendly. I highly recommend taking a trip to the Butterfly estates in Fort Myers. Take a few dollars extra for a plant or 2 or just to donate to a good cause.
