Stop Texting, Start Driving: Butterfly World

Butterfly World is one of the most magical places to visit in South Florida!

It’s time to stop texting, and start driving! We’ve partnered with Steinger, Iscoe & Greene to encourage you to put the phone down, focus on the road ahead, and drive somewhere amazing in South Florida. This month, we’re checking out Butterfly World in Coconut Creek!

Butterfly World is home to about 50 to 55 different species of butterflies. When you walk in the aviaries, you’ll be greeted by around 20,000 of them!

“The owner of butterfly world, Ron Boender, he loves classical music, he’s a conductor himself,” said Natalie Mugica, the training manager at Butterfly World. “There’s classical piano music playing at all times here.”

Mugica said most of the butterflies you’ll see at the park are primarily exotic rain forest butterflies from South American, Central America, Australia, and a few from Asia.

“People see these butterflies and they say, ‘Hey, I want a butterfly garden like Butterfly World has’ and that’s excellent because butterflies are essential to our environment, they’re wonderful pollinators and we need them,” said Mugica.

Butterfly World is more than just butterflies. The park is also home to tropical birds, tarantulas, and an interactive lorikeet encounter.

“It’s a hidden gem! A lot of people say that they’ve lived in Coconut Creek all their lives and they come here and they say, ‘Wow! I didn’t know this was right here in my backyard! This place is huge, this is three acres of property — the world’s biggest butterfly park right in your backyard, it’s amazing,” she said.
