“Enjoyable”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2014

The butterfly farm is a small, enclosed area with many beautiful butterflies. We had a very informative guide to explain the process of becoming a butterfly. The garden is beautiful and the butterflies just move around freely. Would definitely return

“Beautiful!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2014

This is a great place to stop in and visit for an hour or so. Taxi from cruise port is $15/USD each way and the admission is $15/USD/Person. The cruise ships charge $55/USD/Person for the excursion, so I would recommend simply checking it out on your own. The staff at the butterfly farm called a taxi for our return trip to the cruise port. The staff took us on a tour and educated us on everything butterfly related. The young man who gave us our tour was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. The facilities were beautiful and there were so many butterflies! I definitely recommend visiting this place if you ever have an extra two hours on Aruba.

“Great place to visit!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2014

The butterfly farm was a great place to spend some time to learn about the butterflies, listen to stories from the owners, and soak in some serenity. Once you pay for entrance, you can comeback free of charge. While we did not take advantage of this, it is a regret we took off the island with us. Do yourself a favor and take the hour or so out of your day to stop by and get some education on butterflies...you will be glad you did!

“Enjoyed it immensely!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2014

During our trip we went to the Butterfly Farm twice....it is a very peaceful and serene place full of activity. The tour we had was one of the most informative regarding butterflies and moths. Learned so much that I did not know. So worth it!!

“We go every year”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2014

My son loves this place.....he loves looking at all the different butterflies and feeding the fish and turtles. It is a bit pricy for a small place but your ticket is good for your entire stay in case you want to go back. It is a lovely place and we will continue to go back.
