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.
