Hammockville!

We are constantly trying to improve our little slice of heaven on earth here at the Butterfly Gardens in Montezuma. This year we made an addition to the Hammock area. There are 4 places to lay at rest and read a book or have a nice siesta.

Jungle Living

I have to constantly pinch myself while living here in Costa Rica. Am I really here? Is this really happening? It is, and I love it. Everything is surreal and you are constantly in perpetual motion. As soon as one project finishes the next appears.  It keeps you on your toes and it keeps you […]

Sunsets

Diaethria Marchalii

This beautiful butterfly is most commonly encountered near human habitations, where it is a familiar sight to see individuals perched head down on buildings. Its association with human habitation is most likely due to the fact the host plant is a common secondary-succession tree species with a very wide distribution in Costa Rica.

The 5 most commanly found lizards in the garden are the Black Iguana, Green Iguana, Anole, Skink and the Whiptail Lizard. The whiptail lizard, or Ameiva festiva, can be found from Southern Mexico to Columbia. The ameiva genus […]

Coconut milk!

Since moving to Montezuma, Costa Rica in 2005 I have been exposed to a number of new healthy alternatives to cows milk, sugar and processed foods in general. With an abundance of fresh fruit and veggies year round it is very easy to live and eat healthy. One of the many alternatives to cows milk […]

Lobster anyone?

This particular Lobster that you see here on the Nicoya Peninsula is called the Spiny Lobster. They have a couple of obvious differences from your true lobster. Spiny […]
