Review of Butterfly Farm

Butterfly Farm

Reviewed March 12, 2013

My wife and I have been to the Butterfly Farm a total of 7 times during our past two vacations. It may be one of the things besides the beach we like to do when staying at the Westin. It is about a five minute walk there and you can pay once and visit as often as you like during your vacation. The gift shop has some nice things such as pictures of butterflys, windchimes and so on, Just a nice place to go and view the butterfly habitat,

Very interesting tour at the farm. The place is small but there are a big number of butterflies. They show you all the stages and you can come there early in the morning to watch butterflies come out of ther cocoons! if you are lucky (I think it was my sunscreen with coconut scent that they liked) butterflies can land on you for perfect picture opportunities:) very nice gift shop with pretty jewelry and other art made out of butterfly wings..

Great time. The staff was great and informative. Able to walk from our resort. No side walks but not much traffic.

We visited the butterfly farm on our last day in Aruba. Unfortunate, because they give you passes to come back every day if you want for your one-time admission price of $15. They give tours every few minutes available in 5 different languages and give you nice info about the butterflies, but don't take up too much of your time. The atmosphere is very relaxed and you are welcome to stay in the gardens as long as you want. They have lots of beautiful varieties of butterflies. I really enjoyed the gift shop as they had some nicer stuff, better quality than some of the other tourist attractions. Great staff, great experience. Highly recommend.

This was an enjoyable stop. We walked about 25 minutes to get there from the Marriott. There is a nice sidewalk and it's an easy walk. Tour is $16 for adults and $8 for kids, which we think is overpriced for a 20 minute tour. The price does include a free return visit during your time on the island. 100s of butterflies are in this screened in area. One hour of time is good here. A guide explains about butterflies and how the farm operates. The tour guide was good and encouraged questions. I'm glad we went. But, we just think it was overpriced, even though we enjoyed the stop thoroughly. Nice gift shop and restrooms.
Tip. Bring your camera. There are great photo pops of the butterflies.
