This was a neat place to see. I enjoyed it very much here. I've never been to one so it was cool. It's not a huge area, however go here earlier in your trip as you can come back too as many times as you want. It was $15.00 per adult, they took us on a little tour and then... More

This place is not big and of course the butterflies live in captivity, as previous reviewers wrote. But being here, sitting on a bench, watching butterflies is really relaxing. We like going here...

The price of addmision is good for your entire stay in aruba so if you forget your camera or would like to take more pictures you can go back as many times as you want. They have guided tours and they are really informative and we learned alot. They have butterflies from all over the world.
