This little secret place is just amazing. It's not a big place but the staff is very very informative. The butterflies you will see up close and even see them be born, and new ones fly for the first time is so unique. When we went it was $15.00 per adult, not sure what they charge for kids. I would...

We were not very impressed with the butterfly farm in trip in Aruba. It might be because we have seen much better ones before with more species and more butterflies. The cost in Oct '14 is $15 for adult and $8 for kids + taxi cost from the High-rise area. It is about 20 minutes walk from high rise area... More

The Butterfly Farm is located a short distance from the Riu Palace Hotel and has about 35 species of butterflies in all stages of development. Interesting stop on the Discover Aruba Tour Bus and gives you an opportunity to see some exotic species that you might never get to otherwise see.

It is an incredible experience and well worth the admission fee. Where else can you get for-real butterfly kisses?! Little gift shop out front made for nice... More

Spent the morning at the place and me and my husband really enjoyed it. The tour guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. We got some good pictures. Really worth the money and time we would do it again.

The Butterfly Farm was always one of our first stops whenever we visited Aruba with our 2 young children. The owners were proud to explain the various butterfly species and how they lived. You will never see more beautiful collection of butterflies. It was a bit difficult explaining to elementary school children why the butterflies loved the rotten fruit! That... More

We really enjoyed looking at all of the different butterfly types. We also enjoyed listening to the presentation that is included in the entrance fee. We learned some new things that we didn't already know.
