Vallarta's Peak Butterfly Season Begins

Vallarta Botanical Gardens
go to original
September 7, 2013

Bird watching is a popular pastime for Vallarta Botanical Garden visitors, but these are not the only winged animals that captivate nature lovers here.

Butterflies return to the stage at the Gardens in a big way during September and increase in numbers and varieties of species until their peak viewing season in November.

From the large elegant white “guardian angels” to miniature species in fascinating arrangements of color, these delicate creatures float through the sky as if flowers in animation.

Botanical gardens make for the best of places to view butterflies because of our great varieties of plants. Colorful flowers attract most species as sugar-rich nectar sources. Other plants in the Gardens are hosts to the larva for many butterflies which also can be found in great variety here.

Last but not least, the Rio Los Horcones bordering the VBG provides moist banks for butterflies to take in nutrients including salt and other minerals. Of course, this also provides the weary butterfly watcher with a great excuse to relax for a dip in these rejuvenating waters.

Vallarta Botanical Gardens is located at Hwy 200 @KM 24, past Las Juntas and Los Veranos (about 30 minutes south of Old Town Vallarta) in Cabo Corrientes.

We hope to have you join us for butterfly season sometime soon!
