A guide explains the different varieties of butterflies on site as well as the metamorphosis they undergo from eggs, caterpillars, cocoons, chrysalises to butterflies. New butterflies emerge daily. Mysterious and fascinating. There are thirty-five species plus one moth. It's fascinating and beautiful... More

Or is it lady bugs? :) Butterflies are beautiful insects and the space here allows them to fly around all over gracefully. There are so many different kinds of butterflies here, and you are not allowed to capture them, but when they land one you be sure to snap a pic! I spent around an hour here just walking around...

We go to the Butterfly Farm every January when we visit. As some reviewers have noted, there are more butterflies some months/years than others, but it is always a delight. The owners and staff are so nice and know so much about the butterflies. They give tours in a variety of languages and I have heard English, Dutch, Spanish, German,... More

Go early in the morning when the butterflies are being fed, it is a wonderful experience. The butterflies are beautiful. And the young guides are delightful as well as informative.

It's natural! A nice tour with lots of information & butterflys and moths. Well worth the visit, tour and minor cost. You learn a lot and see many butterflys in a beautiful environment.

We very much enjoyed this lovely place near Divi Phoenix (easy to find!) in Aruba. Loads of butterflies and a nice koi pond as well. Very nice and informative guide too, and a cute gift store as well. They do a lot of good work providing a place for the butterflies and the caterpillars. You will definitely enjoy this beautiful...

The setting is very pretty but there were not a lot of exotic butterflies while we were there --2PM.I have been to other butterfly locations that I thought had many more butterflies but... More
