Staff actually the staff had to come take the butterfly off me when I was leaving. But it's very beautiful so bring... More

Was part of the DePalm half day tour we took. It was a nice break and the guide was very informative about the butterflies. Not a large attraction but well worth the time spent.

One of the places you must visit while on Aruba. The staff is young and knowledgeable and made me want to have my own farm back home. Its amazing how the created a climate just for the butterflies. Great gifts to purchase also.

It was a bit pricey to get into, but they have so many beautiful butterflies and they give you a bit of an educational "tour." Your ticket is also good for like 5 or 7 days, so you can come back again on the same ticket which is cool. The farm is right across from Palm Beach so you can... More

We did as part of the De Palm Tours bus tour and it was very educational. I left wanting to plant flowers and plants in my garden to support the butterfly community. We spent about 20 minutes with a guide who explained the life cycle of the caterpillar, the difference between a cocoon and a chrysalis and the life of... More

The butterflies were amazing and the staff was very informative. I thought it was a bit pricey, $15 per person and it was extremely hot in there. Otherwise they staff was very informative and the butterfly farm was very lovely.

Staying on the island is a better way to go see the butterfly house. It was a great place with knowledgeable staff. Marjoree took us on a quick little tour. No touching allowed. If they land on you, make a wish. We are spoiled to have a large butterfly house in Durham. Plenty of butterflies all around. They really care... More

I'm now obsessed with butterflies and this place. It's not easy to find, but so worth it. I can't believe how knowledgeable our guide was, and he was funny on top of it!
