The Butterfly Farm

A popular family attraction in St Maarten, The Butterfly Farm is a large greenhouse housing more than 40 different varieties of butterflies and moths. Guests can take a 20-minute guided tour that explains the lifecycle of the butterfly and its place in the ecosystem (guides are also helpful in advising which plants will attract butterflies to your garden). Guests are free to handle and interact with the butterflies, and morning is the best time to visit the Butterfly Farm to see brand-new butterflies emerging from their cocoons. The farm is wheelchair accessible, and there are snacks and drinks available for sale.
