Mariposario

The Mariposario (also known as the Butterfly Zoo) exhibits around 50 different species of tropical butterflies including Monarch, Blue Morpho, Owl and more. Each week, 800 new pupae are added, which are kept in controlled temperature and humidity, so they can complete the metamorphosis and emerge as a butterfly. Each day, the Mariposario releases more than 100 butterflies. During the visit, kids can learn about butterflies’ reproduction and their metamorphosis, about the migration of the Monarch and about some other secrets of these fascinating beings.

Mariposario is located inside the Chepultepec Zoo.
