Chaa Creek Butterfly Farm & Natural History Museum
Imagine standing in the midst of hundreds of iridescent Blue Morpho Butterflies in flight. Nestled on the grounds of Chaa Creek Resort in the Cayo District, a small-screened structure stands as a productive butterfly farm. Here visitors can observe the fascinating life stages of the beautiful Blue Morpho Butterfly.
Just down a short trail from the Butterfly Farm stands the Chaa Creek Natural History Museum. With the help of a guide visitors can learn about the natural history and geography of Belize, while observing interesting exhibits of butterflies, moths, insects (in shapes and sizes that are quite daunting), amphibians and archeological artifacts. The museum also hosts an impressive library consisting mainly of scientific studies that have been conducted in the Cayo District, a series of interesting slides about Cayo’s rich ecosystems and lots of books relating to Belize’s natural history
