FAQ about visiting the farms

  • What is the 'guided tour'?
    We have so much for you to see and learn at the Farms we don’t want you to miss anything! So we offer a guided tour included in the entrance fee. The tour lasts for approximately 15-20 minutes but you are welcome to stay as long as you like. The longest you would have to wait for a tour is 15 minutes during which time you can relax in the gardens with the butterflies.
  • What is the free return pass?
    All our visitors are given a return pass which allows you to visit us as often as you like for the duration of your vacation. It is not transferable. Cruise ship visitors are given a small discount instead of the pass you will need to show your ship pass at the desk.
  • What is the best time of year to visit?
    The Butterfly Farm has hundreds of butterflies flying at any given time 365 days a year. We are blessed with temperatures in the 80’s year round, so anytime is a great time to visit!  Mornings are generally best when the butterflies are most active and this is the best time to witness butterflies emerging from their chrysalis. The afternoons are great for photography when the butterflies slow down a little.
  • What is the admission fee and opening hours?
    The Farms in Aruba and Saint Martin have slightly different fee structures for island visitors, cruise ship visitors, groups and schools. All prices are great value! but feel free to email us with details of your party for further information. Both Farms are open 7 days a week. St Martin 9am – 3.30pm (last tour starts at 3pm). Aruba 8.30 am - 4.30pm (last tour starts at 4pm).
