I think this place is way over priced for what it is. 15$ per person. A small little space with some butterflies and cocoons. I wouldn't do it again even though you get in free after paying the first time. I think kids would enjoy it but you absolutely can't touch the butterflies so the kids need to be old... More

This farm is walking distance from the Riu's, like 5 minutes. $15 pp to get in, you walk through the garden can take lots of pictures and then they come give you a tour and lots of info on the species. Really a quaint place. Also once you pay to get in you get a free voucher to come back... More

We stayed at the Riu Antillas and the Butterfly farm is about a 3 min walk from the hotel so we decided to check it out. Entrance fee is $15 but it is well worth it, there is an educational session at the start and our guide was a wealth of knowledge. You are then free to roam around and... More

We went here one day and once you've paid you can go back as much as you like whilst on holiday. Good value at $15 as there are lots of different butterflies and very colourful they are too. Hard to get a good photo but lovely to just sit and enjoy them.

This was part of a cruise ship shore excursion. I must say I was disappointed by the size of it, and the limited variety of butterfly species. Staff were very friendly and did a good job to educate, but it's simply too small to accommodate two busloads of tourists.

We took some time to see the sights on the island, and the Butterfly Farm was close to where we were staying. We had read the reviews, so we knew that there was going to be an educational component, along with the butterflies. It was great! The program was good, and then we were completely left to our own devices... More

My first visit to Oranjestad, Aruba aboard NCL Dawn and purchased an excursion through the ship and one of the stops was the Butterfly Farm. A very small venue, but filled with beautiful butterflies. The local guide was very knowledgeable and informative. A beautiful butterfly landed on my tropical shirt thinking the flower was real. I was able to take... More
