Reasons for trip

The Butterfly House or Mariposario in Benalmadena between Torremolinos and Fuengirola on the Malaga coast was a delight. I visited with my husband, two sons, 18 and 12 and my eighty-year old parents.

The visit was a success and enjoyed by all. Although very hot and humid inside, obviously, it was delightful. We were told to watch out for caterpillars on the floor and were swooped on and settled on by exotic butterflies.

Many crysalsyses were on display hanging like jewels, some highly painted and gold flecked others like curled up leaves.

The Butterfly House is a large place or a long visit so at the price of 8.50 for adults and 7.50 Euros for OAPs I thought it a bit steep. But I´d bought our tickets on a Spanish site for 5 Euros each and was absolutely delighted with both price and attraction.

Would I go again? Most definately, all of us would.
