  • In the community of Sarchí, Valverde Vega canton of the province of Alajuela, there is a real paradise for the hundreds of butterflies that inhabit this beautiful part of the country. It is the Sarchí Butterfly Garden where you can see these species, besides that, here you will observe their life cycles as well as their way of feeding and which plants are the most appropriate to attract insects like these. This project started 9 years ago on the estate Cooperativa Coopearsa located 200 meters north of the Plaza de Sarchí Norte and is in charge of the Rodríguez Alvarez family, who have dedicated much effort and care so that this butterfly garden is still standing. In this place there are about 20 species from the western area and in total there are more than 800 butterflies, which feed and reproduce on a daily basis. Species such as phoebis, morpho, parides, iphadamos, greta, mechantis, caligo, eurema, consul, among others are the most common in this part of the national territory. Although any time of the year is appropriate to visit the Sarchí butterfly garden, winter is a better time to appreciate the natural beauty of this specialized center.  The Coopearsa estate has two hectares of land, where the butterfly garden is located, a restaurant specializing in meats and seafood, souvenirs and a furniture room.
