This was a very cool experience. We stumbled upon it when trying to find something to do on an empty day. The staff member walked us through the butterfly greenhouse (which is always open to allow butterflies free passage) and gave a wonderful talk about...More
If you have some extra time after Machu Picchu, this is well worth the visit! The guide was very informative, the garden was beautiful, and the tour of the sanctuary was very educational. It’s not just a touristy thing, it’s a conservation project run by...More

The only way is to walk down the main road past the bus depot and keep going. It is down the road about 35 minutes on your left. Hard to miss! It is pretty safe as everyone else going there or to el jardín de mandor also... More
The only way is to walk down the main road past the bus depot and keep going. It is down the road about 35 minutes on your left. Hard to miss! It is pretty safe as everyone else going there or to el jardín de mandor also walk along that road. Be sure to watch out for busses though!
