Bringing the Magic to Life

FAQs About Butterfly Wonderland In Scottsdale

  • What is Butterfly Wonderland?

    Located at 9500 East Vía de Ventura F100, Butterfly Wonderland is a sanctuary for the most beautifully colored and delicate creature of the world, the beautiful butterfly. Offering a rainforest experience in the heart of the desert, visitors will learn about the winged creatures, as well as explore exhibits that include a reptile habitat, honeybee extravaganza, and tropical waters of the world.

  • Do any of your I Love Scottsdale homes offer butterfly gardens?

    The bird of paradise, a flower native to Africa that does extremely well in our arid desert climate, can be found in the gardens of some of our Scottsdale sanctuaries, beckoning colorful butterflies that can add magic to your trip.

  • Did I really read that you can eat insects?

    In many countries, certain insects are considered delicacies, and one of the more unusual “exhibits” of Butterfly Wonderland is their Edible Insect Station, selling chocolate covered ants and scorpion lollipops that you will probably be tempted to take home with you as gifts for friends who weren’t able to join you on your Scottsdale vacation.

  • It was pretty muggy at the Wonderland, how can I get cool again in my I Love Scottsdale vacation rental?

    Although the desert heat is dry as opposed to the humid heat of Butterfly Wonderland, there will be plenty of ways to cool down once you return to your Scottsdale sanctuary. Air conditioning, of course, will definitely keep you cool inside, as will ceiling fans in nearly every room, and wine refrigerators that you have filled with chardonnay chilled to the perfect temperature. Outside, large crystal-clear pools will provide relief from the soaring temps as well as giving guests yet another way to have fun.
