A visit to the natural bridge and beach were included; thus, not enough time for any one. Would have preferred to have a separate excursion for each to allow more leisure time to enjoy. Natural Bridge was interesting. Beach was beautiful. Butterfly was the favorite, but not enough time to enjoy all the species or creatively take photos to capture the beauties. Read Less

This was part of a ship tour: Natural Wonders. the Butterfly farm was amazing and an excellent opportunity to get close up with many unusual types of butterflies from around the world. At the entrance there was a birdbath filled with salt and a dozen Banaquit birds were enjoying the salt. The retail shop here had a water cooler and offered us cold sweet tea which was very welcome in the humid weather. Read Less

It was raining for most of this visit, but during the heaviest rains, the guides kept us under a porch for an introductory lecture/demonstration of some of the butterfly research and species at the farm. we were then led back to the enclosed garden area where we heard more information and were able to wander and explore and take lots of photos. Beautiful gardens, several fish and turtle ponds and many beautiful butterflies where ever you looked (in spite of the intermittent drizzle). I would definitely recommend this part of the tour.
