Butterflies at Toucan Ecolodge and wildlife reserve

Costa Rica has almost 1.500species of butterflies flying around, so you can imagine, that there is a very good chance to see many of them.:-)There are several beautiful species which can be observed easily in the forests, like one of the most beautiful ones: the Morpho butterflies, the Owl butterflies, the Malachite, the Glass wing butterflies just to mention a few.
You will be amazed if you will see for the first time a Blue Morpho butterfly, it will give you the sensation to be in a dream or in a fairy tale. In our garden and forest trails you will also have a good chance to see a lot of butterflies depending on the period of time when you come and on number of flowery trees, fruits.. At the feeders where we put out bananas, papayas there is always more interest from the part of butterflies as well, not only birds, but also the composte can be a good place to see some species.
