Parotte Ville Bird Sanctuary Saint-Martin
#2 of 82 things to do in St Martin / St Maarten
So glad we found this hidden gem! $10 gets you birdseed, a tour of medicinal plants, and a stop at a collection of historical items from owner's family.
It is a great place to visit for people of all ages and especially kids, it is wonderful interacting with all the species of birds.
The Butterfly Farm (La Ferme des Papillons) Quartier D'Orleans
#10 of 82 things to do in St Martin / St Maarten
What a lovely concept?! We took our daughter here on her birthday and kids loved the fluttering butterflies and all the knowledgeable facts about butterflies.
Helpful guides in both French and English, cute little gift shop, nice grounds even outside of the butterfly enclosure, but it is so great for kids.
