Mariposario Tambopata

The Tambopata Butterfly Farm (Mariposario Tambopata) is the first and biggest butterfly exhibition in Peru. Located only 2 min from Puerto Maldonado International Airport. In the Tambopata Butterfly Farm you will stroll around hundreds of amazing amazonian butterflies. The Tambopata Butterfly Farm is a great place to wait for your flight.

Reviewed By Butterflier2006

By far the best "butterfly house"! ALL native butterflies, no imports. Owner, Augusto, was very knowledgeable. We are amateur lepidopterists, and as such are much more interested in local species, so this was a wonderful find. We spent about 3 hours there, which is more than the usual visitor would spend. Native plants and local butterflies make this a very unique butterfly house. For anyone who wants to see local species in their native habitat, without tromping through the jungle, this is definitely a must stop! It's only a few minutes from the airport, and has a very nice cafe, with a small gift shop offering locally made items.
