We could walk to the Butterfly Farm from our hotel. We decided to just see what it was like, but it had just closed. The price was $15 a person but allowed you access for at least a week.

On the way back from being downtown we decided to visit the butterfly farm. Unfortunately we had arrived at 4:05 and missed the last tour but we were given a voucher allowing us to return for the tour. Albeit we were late we were still allowed to enter the farm until 4:30. The nice thing about the time was that... More

This is a real gem. The staff gives a great tour. It is amazing how many different types of butterflies they have. Garden is immaculate. The admission fee gives you access for your whole vacation. It is worth visiting during different times to see the butterflies in different activity patterns. It is a very magical place to just sit and... More

I have never seen so many species of Butterflies in one place. I have seen different butterfly exhibits, and this was just great. Between the various colors, and the varying sizes of some of the butterflies, I must say I was amazed.

One can visit and learn of the many different types of butter flys which fly about freely from small to large from black gray white to the most colorful butterflies. From small medium to extremely large the butterfl h farm is... More

It's amazing how the owner was able to put together such a collection of butterflies from different regions around the world. The farm is easily accessible as it is a few minutes walk from the hotel stretch. The entry ticket is valid for multiple entries as you are invited to return to look at the butterflies as they emerge from... More

Defiantly worth the visit! Had a great time and we all learned a lot. This team is very knowledgable and made the tour understandable to the youngest member of the group.

Beautiful spot. Knowledgeable staff, interesting. Thought $15 Was a bit pricey but you can make multiple visits, especially if you want to return early to witness births in early mornings. Nice to see.

The best time to visit is early in the morning. The butterflies are awake and fly all around you. At noon onwards mostly they are sleeping. At noon onwards, you will still be able to see them, but it is different if you see them just hanging there, or flying all around you. You can buy tickets at the entrance.... More

We were staying at the Riu Palace Antillas and were advised to come and visit by our Thomson rep as the farm is just 200 mtrs down the road. We first visited on an afternoon when the butterflies are all "drunk"and were given a very informative tour by one of the well informed girls working there. There is so much... More
