The Butterfly Conservatory is a great business opportunity for nature lovers. Income producing while helping to regenerate Mother Earth, all while having an adventure in beautiful Costa Rica.
The project is situated on 33,620 m2 (a little over 8 acres) of previously cut rain forest that has been in regeneration for the past ten years. The majority of the area is now fully planted and developed. The property also has two spring fed creeks running through it, the smaller one (Frog Creek) has its source right on our property, the other (Butterfly Creek) stems from the rain forest reserves up above our property, and continues on another kilometer below the property to flow into Lake Arenal, the largest lake in Costa Rica.
The project contains the largest exhibition area for butterflies in Costa Rica and numerous trails that pass through the tropical botanical gardens. The Reception Center building is a cement, steel, and glass structure, (about 1,050 ft2 construction) with incredible views of volcano Arenal and Lake. This building also houses our butterfly laboratory and public restrooms, (there is also a private bathroom in the office of this building). Additionally, there are 9 different large steel and screen atrium / greenhouse structures (approx. 12,000 ft2 under cover) that house our exhibition habitats; (there are also 5 other atriums for further expansion of the project that are in the process of being completed).
