The butterfly farm is a small, enclosed area with many beautiful butterflies. We had a very informative guide to explain the process of becoming a butterfly. The garden is beautiful and the butterflies just move around freely. Would definitely return

This is a great place to stop in and visit for an hour or so. Taxi from cruise port is $15/USD each way and the admission is $15/USD/Person. The cruise ships charge $55/USD/Person for the excursion, so I would recommend simply checking it out on your own. The staff at the butterfly farm called a taxi for our return trip... More

During our trip we went to the Butterfly Farm twice....it is a very peaceful and serene place full of activity. The tour we had was one of the most informative regarding butterflies and moths. Learned so much that I did not know. So worth it!!

My son loves this place.....he loves looking at all the different butterflies and feeding the fish and turtles. It is a bit pricy for a small place but your ticket is good for your entire stay in case you want to go back. It is a lovely place and we will continue to go back.

Great place to stop on the way to the beach, especially with kids. The have sugar thief birds out front, turtles in a koi pond and plenty of butterflies. The admission comes with a tour and lesson on the butterfly life cycle. Bring a zoom lens on your camera if you have one.

Tour guides explained the life cycle of butterflies. The tropical garden was teeming with colourful butterflies and was a good place for beautiful pictures.

Our family visited during the week of March 24 2014. It was amazing.. the collection of butterflies was wonderful. The tour was great as they explained everything about the collection you would ever want to know. All we can say is... butterflies everywhere…there were thousands. An unbelievable site. We would recommend this for all ages. Bring your camera, you will... More
