The Butterfly Farm is nicely landscaped with an entrance area and behind that the area with the butterflies. The area with the butterflies is not very big, but there are a lot of colorful butterflies to see (some very large), and it is certainly a pleasure to be here to walk around and enjoy it. There were several guides and... More

A 10 minute walk takes you to the butterfly farm.It is so tranquil and peaceful,and you wouldnt believe the colours on them.It is not very big,but you could spend a good hour there.

We made a brief stop at the butterfly farm, the owner greeted us and gave us a ticket to come back any time during our stay as the butterflies do different things at different times of the day so he wants guests to be able to see more. We took the brief tour to educate us on the butterflies and... More

Great for children. Brief tour which covers the life of the butterfly. Bring your camera. Visit early in your trip - you can return as often as you want once you've paid for the initial visit. $15 adults, $8 children

This was a nice break from the sun. The farm is small but has an abundant amount of butterflies. We were given an informative talk by a very knowledgeable gentleman and shown the different stages of a butterflies life.

We saw all stages of many of the most beautiful butterflies that I had only seen in books. I was impressed by the size and color of the blue ones that were a bit plain when their wings were folded, but the most brilliant cobalt blue when in flight!

My youngest son (11) wanted to do something in Aruba related to animals, so we allowed him to pick the Butterfly Farm as one of the sites we would go see. The 16 year old was bitterly unhappy, until we got there. This facility is fairly small, but exceedingly well done. We were greeted by a friendly desk clerk, charged... More

We love butterflies!! Hadn't been to the farm in a few years but now that my husband and I have two butterfly gardens of our own we were really excited to go back to Aruba's Butterfly Farm. We always learn something new. Our tour guide, Kevin, was outstanding! Came back home and added more butterfly plants! Definitely worth going to... More
