Smaller and less elaborate than the Butterfly Farm, Spirogyra still provides a good introduction to the life cycle of butterflies. First watch the 18-minute video (it runs continuously), then grab the provided butterfly booklet and take a self-guided tour. It’s a calm and quiet oasis in a noisy and crowded city, just a short taxi ride to downtown (it’s near El Pueblo).
