Tips for you
We stopped at the park inbetween two spots of one of our day trips. There are a lot of butterflies (so many beautiful colors) and big lizards! There is also a "breading station"where you can see them in different growth states. It is possible to hold a cocoon and the staff is enthusiast to answer all the questions (she spoke fluent German and English). There is also a little cave with insects (behind glass;)) . At the exit there is also a museum where you can look at butterflies and insects more closely (also shows colour difference in male/female).
