The staff are very friendly and the talk they give you on arrival is both interesting and informative, but not so long that you get bored. The farm itself is beautiful and my daughter loved seeing all the butterflies flitting around her. It is quite small, so it doesn't take very long to get round it all but the fact... More

As adults, when we arrived, we were taken back a bit. "IS THIS IT" Well, yes it was. Butterflies are beautiful, but seriously, I see them at home and get more of a thrill. The place was hot & we couldn't wait to go. I think we spent about 20 minutes. I can see only certain children enjoying it, or... More

Lots of pretty butterflies. Fun for the kids. Educational. Super hot inside there. For a couple of bucks you walked around a green house like structure and learn everything there is to know about butterflies. HINT: If you wear something green they'll land on you! I got a really beautiful Aruba butterfly magnet there.

We're back in Aruba for our 6th visit and we always come the the butterfly farm. The staff who do the tour are really informative and the small gardens and beautiful butterflies make it a pleasure to visit. Even better is that you can keep returning during your stay for a single $15 entry fee. This gives you the chance... More

I enjoyed taking pictures of all the butterflies, yes it was hot in the farm but tolerable, the tour guide told us about the butterflies cycle and we were allowed to stay as late as we wanted. It was worth it if you like butterflies.

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

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. I have been to numerous butterfly exhibits over the years but Kevin made the information come to life. It was fascinating.... More
