Advertised as world's biggest. Ive been to a couple of these types of places in different cities and this is by far the largest I've been to... And the most dense in terms of butterflies in there. A large percentage of the butterflies are a breed that exists only here. They've also got a few aviaries which are nice and a bug museum (dead)/zoo (alive) which was really interesting. Lots of walking stick bugs and beetles. Be aware that in the zoo area there live spiders that are not contained hanging from the ceiling. Not a problem unless youre 7 feet tall. Also impressive are the amount of exotic plants. Not overly manicured/arranged but abundant and vibrant. We went on South Florida Summer Adventure Passes so it was a good deal... But the deal exists because in the oppressive heat of summer this place and others like it have slower business were it not for discounted prices. Keeping that in mind, much of butterfly world is outdoors and while there's lots of places to find shade the heat (and regularly scheduled thunderstorms) is something something to consider.
This place is amazing! So much to see, so much to do! Our family loves the Butterfly World! The staff are so friendly and pay attention to all the details, to ensure that the park and all of its guests are happy and having a good experience. We came here many years ago, and now came back as a family, and we loved it then, and we love it now!! Highly recommended, well worth the entry fee!!
