“Interesting place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

Haven't been there in a few years, but it is really interesting. At the time, butterflies were just returning since they were wiped out by a hurricane.

“Nice expierence but better suited for families”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

Was $15.00 to get in the ticket allows you to visit as many times as you like. Was a really quick tour probably 15 - 20 min tops.
You learn interesting facts but this is probably more fun for people with families.

“Worthwhile to see”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

We tried to see this the last time we were in St Maarten but got rained out. MAde it there this time and it was worth it. The $15 entry fee was a little pricey to get in but when you hear it is going to keep the butterfly species from going extinct it softens the blow a little. The road to get there is typical St Maarten, full of holes. We met the owner who was great and our guide was extremely informative! Lots of hands on for the kids. They give you a pass to come back for free for the duration of your stay on the island. We had a great time and got lots of good advice for what to do the rest of the day!

“Great spot especially for kids”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

We went here as part of an excursion from an Oasis of the Sea cruise. We went to Orient Beach afterwards.

This is a small place with lots of butterflys flying around. The guide Molly grew up there and was very funny and informative in her presentation. There is a nice gift shop and they give you a fruit punch with or without rum afterwards. We had a 6 yr old with us who was enthralled especially when a butterfly landed on him.

A nice diversion before going to the beach.

“Be one with nature!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

We got some beautiful photographs of the butterflies at the farm. Everyone is childlike here hoping the butterflies will land on them. Their colors are remarkable. Molly 's demonstration is informative and it is clear that she loves her family's farm. We enjoyed the complimentary rum drinks while watching lovely yellow birds feeding nearby.
