Some very gorgeous butterflies we've never seen before. Guided tour very informative, don't pass it up. Hatching butterflies. Pools, benches, lots of plants & trees. You pay once, you come free for the rest of your trip. Small gift shop where we found an excellent wedding gift---to our surprise! Outside is a bird watering station with unique Aruban? birds. Bright... More

The butterfly farm has a 15 dollar entrance fee for adults, however the 30 minute tour was well worth the entry price. It is very scientific informative, and the guide points out things the layman wouldn't notice- such as caterpillars, eggs, atlas moths, etc. the tour also allows you to view the silk cacoons up close and we were able...

After many, many visits to Aruba, I finally made it to the Butterfly Farm this year! It is a very special little place. The tour will cost you $15 dollars and allows you a free trip back within a week. The tour guide was so sweet and smart. He taught us so much about the the different butterflies in the... More

Based on the size and conservative signage, we didn't have high expectations. We were beautifully surprised by the charm, knowledge and obvious dedication to the cultivation of the environment in which butterflies flourish. It was so peaceful and relaxing to sit and just watch. Remember if a butterfly lights on you, make a wish.

If you spend anytime in Aruba it is well worth your time to visit the Butterfly Farm. The guides are very knowledgeable and friendly. They tour includes a detailed explanation of the farm and the process by which they breed and care for the butterflies and moths. It is not a large place so a tour along with time spent... More

The Butterfly Farm is in the Palm Beach resort area and along the road. So, it is not a "farm" that is off the beaten track, i.e., it is very easy to find. It is basically a large net-covered expanse, which makes it impossible for the butterflies to escape or get eaten by outside enemies. Our guide was very knowledgeable... More

We enjoyed the walk to the Butterfly Farm from our hotel. It is a great place to break up a day from the beach & pool. The staff was very friendly & informative. I recommend a visit you won't be disappointed.

As soon as we passed through the entrance of the Butterfly Farm, I was struck with a strong sense of being in a magical place. One must enter and leave the enclosure quickly, to ensure the butterflies stay inside. As you enter, the butterflies are immediately fluttering all around you and it is truly breathtaking. Be careful though, if you... More

If you get there around 0730 you will get a chance to see some butterflies come out of their lil cocoons. They have all types of butterflies ranging from the Amazon to Africa. Their little tours are very instructive. Go early when it is nice and cool because it does get a little tropical. We went in July.
