Mariposario butterfly park in Benalmadena

by Mariposario Butterfly Park

The Mariposario Butterfly Park in Benalmadena, is now open! Come and feel the experience of more than 1,500 butterflies from all over the world flying free around you in a tropical environment. As their lifespan is only 2-3 weeks you will be able to find new species each visit. We exhibit more than 150 different species throughout the whole year.

The Butterfly Park Benalmádena is over 2,000 m2, the largest climate controlled space dedicated to butterflies, in Europe. The building was built in a Thai style and gives it a unique look with many building materials and decorative elements brought directly from Thailand.

Many of the butterfly species reproduce in the park itself, so besides butterflies you can observe all the stages of their fascinating biological cycle as eggs and caterpillars, and other behavior such as their courtship flights and mating. Every day new butterflies are born in the nursery, so do not miss the unique opportunity to see how they hatch from the chrysalis and spread their wings. You will be able to witness their first flight after the metamorphosis.

I was there over this last weekend, and I am absolutely disappointed with the installations, the information provided and the butterflies which were under exhibition. The park is extremely small. You have seen it all in 5 minutes, and there are only some butterflies flying around. In addition, I do not think that the visitors should be able to touch the butterflies...this is almost torture of living beings!! So...if you want to save some money, avoid going to the butterfly park!!

Free entrance for kids!

Pick up a copy of Kids on the Costa magazine summer edition and the kids can get in free when they colour in the picture at the back of the magazine.

Some copies are still available at Iceland in Fuengirola and the
Tennis Club del Sol in Calahonda. You may also still be able to get a copy at one of the international schools.

Mariposario- Butterfly Park
by: Kirsten de Langen

I have been to the Butterfly Park last week with my two children, 5 and 7 years old, and we had a great time! It is so beautiful! The girls could not stop taking pictures! The staff that works there is very friendly and gives you all the information about the butterflies and moths and their life cycle. It is very interesting and for the children a pleasant way to learn about nature!
