Every day throughout March, you can see the giant, gorgeous, brilliantly blue morpho butterflies. These winged lovelies visit every year as part of March Morpho Mania. Stroll among thousands of these butterflies, as they dart and dive and perhaps, if you're lucky, alight on your shoulder for a moment or two. While there, learn about the butterflies' home in Costa Rica. It just might be one of the most magical places on earth.
