Tree Nymph - The Butterfly Farm
The Butterfly Farm

Located in Palm Beach, Aruba’s Butterfly Farm is an unforgettable encounter with nature. Step into a tropical garden teeming with butterflies, and enjoy entertaining and educational tours, as well as amazing photo opportunities.

Imagine walking through a lush tropical rain forest amidst flowers and trees, ponds and a trickling waterfall with butterflies flying overhead and all around you in their own natural paradise. This is a dream come true at The Butterfly Farm on Aruba. Within large meshed enclosures you can see hundreds of real exotic butterflies flying freely, a beautiful display of the most spectacular species from all over the world.

An essential part of the visit to all the farms is the famous "guided tour". Visitors are shown the evolutionary cycle from microscopic eggs, to strange and exotic caterpillars, pupae resembling exquisite designer jewelry.

Witness all stages of their life cycle from tiny egg to curious caterpillar and jewel like pupa. Early in the morning is the best opportunity to see a butterfly emerging from its pupa and watch newborn butterflies take their first flight!

If you want to handle the butterflies and caterpillars their guides will be happy to show you how to do so without damaging these fragile creatures. Wear bright colors and citrus cologne if you want the butterflies to land on you!
Visit Aruba’s most unique gift shop. Open seven days a week from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The last tour is at 4 p.m.
