Really enjoyed it

The Butterfly Farm is really nice to visit. You get a tour and the guide tells you everything about the butterflies. If you are Lucky, a butterfly will even sit on your hand!

This was a nice easy activity to do with our toddler. It's a small enclosure filled with various butterfly habitats and pretty little gentle butterflies fluttering all around you. Perfect for a short attention span, even though most of the kids there were melting down half-way through the short lesson about the butterflies. A nice point is they give you... More

Went to the Butterfly Farm multiple times during the week as it is so beautiful, and your initial purchase of tickets allows you to visit all week.

You think you'd be here for about 15 minutes, but you find yourself spending a few hours, watching the butterflies and moths around this farm. It is a $6 cab from the Holiday Inn if you don't want to walk there (~1.2 miles). We had Marlin as our guide (inclusive in entry fee) and he was wonderful. Very informative and... More

The Butterfly farm was fun. The tour very informative. The folks that worked there were very nice. It was a bit pricy, but everything in Aruba costs a bit more. The admission does carry a few extra perks, like re-admission at butterfly hatching time. We would defiantly return.

This was surprisingly interesting, despite its small size. I wish we'd had time to return, since the entrance fee allows a week of visits.
