Mariposario Punta Uva
Puerto Viejo to Punta Uva
This place in Punta Uva is more of a butterfly-breeding center than a tourist attraction (though it does have wonderful ocean views). Some 70 species of butterfly are bred annually, including four species that the staff says exist in captivity nowhere else in the world. What you’ll see depends on the time of year. Bilingual guided tours are available.
