Trip to the Butterly Farm Aruba

Beyond gorgeous, the Butterfly Farm in Aruba is a stunning place to enjoy the extensive foliage and free roaming butterflies.

On a personal note, my now husband and I went to the Butterfly Farm in St. Maarten years ago in 2016 when we started dating. Both farms are owned by a close friend of mine. The St. Maarten Farm is no more thanks to the wrath of Hurricane Irma. So it was wonderful to see the Aruba farm, especially since it’s very similar to the former St. Maarten farm.

6 years later and we brought our two little girls with us. It’s not exactly the same, but the experience was just the same. The girls (1.5 and 3 years old) were too young to follow the tour. And that was fine since Michael and I have heard the spiel before. We let the girls walk around and admire the butterflies. Olivia, our 3 year old, was more timid around the butterflies whereas Parker was amazed by them.
