For those 60+...easy tour. No stress or strain. The Butterfly Farm was part of an island tour that we took! We were not sure what it was all about but what a great surprise! You could easily miss the "farm" driving by. Once you enter the butterfly area it is like another world. The butterflies dart around unafraid of those... More

We visited in the morning when the butterflies are most active. It was such a pleasure to enjoy their bright colors amid the lush vegetation. The winding paths and many benches invite a prolonged, relaxing visit.

This stop was part of a three-hour tour and I was not too enthusiastic to stop there but once inside – its was fascinating. The staff was very knowledgeable and I gained a new appreciation for the wonder of these creatures. It was a great education in how important it is to provide habitat for pollinators like these. It is... More

We went during the morning as recommended and I couldn't believe how active the butterflies were! The tour guide was really interesting as well - I actually ended up learning a lot! There were lots of people with cameras - don't forget yours like we did (duh!)

The admission price includes a tour where they explain all about the life cycle of butterflies. You can then spend as much time as you want around the garden. They also provide a free pass to...

On our recent trip to Aruba, on a wim, we decided to stroll down the road and hit the Butterfly Farm. It is across from the Divi resort (in the High Rise area). My expectations were minimal, but wow, I was pleasantly surprised. We walked into the little shop and were greeted with a pleasant, refreshing orange mango juice. The... More
