Andoke Foundation and its butterfly house
Have you ever wanted to see butterflies close up and even touch them. This is your chance.
A pleasure for your senses
Colombia’s biodiversity is one of the country’s greatest attractions, and in centres like the one run by the Andoke Foundation it is possible to admire the magic of Mother Nature’s creations. Not far from the capital, it is home to an important collection of autochthonous plants, aquatic gardens, national flowers and birds that will make you feel you are in paradise: once you have immersed yourself in the landscape, you will think there is no more wonderful place on earth. But, without a doubt, the highlight is its enormous butterfly house, a place where these stunningly beautiful insects fly free, reproduce and grow, and you can also discover how caterpillars turn into butterflies; of course, you can touch them and feel their gentle movements in your hand as you get a close look at their striking colours. An unbeatable feeling! Its fascinating scalable map of Colombia is another point of interest.
