If you're recovering from a sunburn or just need a break from diving, the Butterfly Garden Bonaire offers a tranquil respite. The garden's host and guide, Georgie Rigault, provides an interesting glimpse into the butterfly species that live in and around the Caribbean. Recent travelers attest that Georgie always enjoys answering visitor questions. One TripAdvisor user says, "Georgie was helpful and informative, and didn't mind our asking him a zillion questions."
If the butterflies' kaleidoscopic colors aren't enough of a draw, recent travelers also praise the garden's new open-air luncheonette, the KishiKishi Café. The café offers small bites during the week, such as goat cheese spring rolls and pastechi (a meat-filled pastry), and on Sundays, Jamaican-style barbeque. Some recent travelers even bypassed the Butterfly Garden in favor of the saucy eats.
The Butterfly Garden Bonaire is located on the southeastern side of the island, near Lac Cai. The garden opens its doors Tuesday through Sunday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission for adults costs $12, children ages four to 11 costs $8, and children 3 and under can enter for free. For more information, visit the garden's website.
