During our recent trip in 2019 to the island country of Aruba, we had the opportunity to visit The Butterfly Farm near Oranjestad.

Personable, knowledgeable tour guides walk with you through the enclosed area, pointing out the dozens of species of butterflies. The guides also explain the life cycle of butterflies and their mating habits. On exhibit is a number of butterfly chrysalises waiting to open.

The farm is a well maintained, lush, tropical garden, flush with brilliant flowers. Restrooms are provided, as is a nicely stocked gift shop. Parking is free.

Included below are a few photo highlights of our recent tour. We highly recommend a visit to this fine facility when in Aruba. 

The Butterfly Farm is located on J. Irausquin Boulevard Z/N, in Oranjestad, Aruba, in the famous Palm Beach area, just across from the Aruba Divi Phoenix. Phone 297.586.3656. It is open 7 days a week.
