A pretty unique attraction: Butterfly World

I never imagined there are attractions where you can have butterflies flying all over you…even sitting on you or just giving you a nice pose. Well, while doing research for our Florida trip, we found just that: Butterfly World in Coconut Creek (around 17 miles North of Fort Lauderdale in Florida). It is the largest butterfly park in the world (housing around 5,000 live butterflies) and is highly rated on TripAdvisor.

Though the ticket might look pricey (at $27 for an Adult), but it is all worth it!

As we entered the complex, we were greeted by these beautiful Canaries🙂

DSC02450On progressing further, the other sections only added to our excitement. They are arranged below per the sections we followed:

  • Paradise Adventure Aviary: includes fountains with ponds, and butterflies.


  • Hanging Garden & Butterfly Emerging Area: displays cases with hanging pupa and emerging butterflies.


  • Tropical Rain Forest Aviary: includes a waterfall, tropical plants, free-flying birds, and butterflies.


  • Jewels of the Sky Aviary: where hummingbirds and other birds can be seen.


  • Grace Gardens: an outdoor botanical garden with flowering tropical plants.
  • Vine maze to Tropical Bird Aviary: has one of the largest collection of passion flower vines in the world, and the tropical birds.


  • Macau Landing: we saw these cuties there, they seemed to be occupied within themselves🙂


  • Butterfly World Lake: just an open area with a bridge seperating sections.


  • English Rose Garden: There was not much to see, as it was not the blooming season.
  • Lorikeet encounter: one can see parrots there and can feed them too…my wife had a great time with them.


  • Bug Zoo: displays live insects including water bugs, spiders, wasps, walking sticks, and mantis.

If you feel tired, you can relax at the couple of café outlets they have. One can also view the laboratory where the butterflies are raised and can see their different stages (live) including eggs, caterpillars, and pupae.

A must visit attraction, especially if you are around with kids. You would need at least 2-3 hours for a good stroll through all the sections – some spend the whole day too!

  3. BEAUTIFUL Pictures… love each of them for the vivid colors they hold. I can’t imagine one place having so many butterflies, are they inbred or seasonal visitors?
