I want to take the grand munchkins to the butterfly farm. About how far north is it? Can we get there by bike (we are all excellent riders and are up for adventure) or golf cart? ...Or should we take the water taxi? Does the facility require advance notice that we are coming? What is the cost of admission?

Newfoundlanders are the only people in heaven who want to go home.

It is only 4 miles. I highly recommend letting them know you are coming and calling in advance to make sure they indeed have butterflies that day.

Butterfly Jungle is not up and running at this time.
Hopefully that will change with the coming season, but for now it's not happening.

Let me know how the visit goes. I talked to Valley and she had planned to open after Thanksgiving. I think it does not cost much to get in. I saw the Jungle doors open this am. I will ride by and ask Valley.
She is on the message board every now and then. I will tell her people are asking about it.

there's a dandy butterfly farm out on the Western Highway outside San Jose Succotz. The folks at the Trek Stop maintain it. It's an expedition from San Pedro Town, but worth the effort.

Has anyone heard from Valley or anyone at the Butterfly Farm recently?? Their number is not even working and no replies via email these days.
