The guides provide informative talks on the Cultural aspects of Belize as well as on the Blue Morpho. You also get to 'interact' with the Blue Morphos . Very educational and fun!

the butterfly house is amazing! so many Morphos. they land on your head and your shirt. you can see them hatching. It is a very well maintained facility and the little Museum is quite interesting and attractive...but it's the Morphos that will get to you!
