Categories: Farms, Wildlife Areas, Nature & Parks, Tourist Spots
You’ll think you’re inside a lush tropical rainforest at The Butterfly Farm (La Ferme des Papillons), as flowers and trees surround you and butterflies fly overhead. Hundreds of exotic butterflies, from many species across the globe, fly freely in the enclosure, which simulates their natural habitat. Join the guided tour and not only learn, but be shown the evolutionary cycle of butterflies as they evolve from microscopic eggs to strange caterpillars, and eventually pupae. Refreshments and a souvenir store can be found onsite. Wear bright colored clothing, and maybe a butterfly will land on you.

Very didactic in its exhibition, but above all fascinated by the experience of walking surrounded by giant butterflies and that is even posen in your hands and body. A visit not to be missed, especially if there is a child with a capacity of wonder. Wonderful to photograph and with nice souvenir. 100% recommended.show original

Absolutely awesome time. Molly was a great tour guide and was very funny. Showed us a lot of cool things and shared a lot of interesting facts. I would recommend you go if you have the chance.
We had a great time exploring the garden. There are butterflies everywhere. Molly's tour was great. Highly recommended if you are on the island.
Very nice sanctuary for the little winged fellas, the kids enjoyed it lots. The staff is very knowledgable and friendly, too.
Nice people, loved the butterflies, easy to get there
Very relaxing and interesting. We went twice (the second time is free during your island stay). Very knowledgeable staff and beautiful facility. Most are tropical butterflies that most people will never see in their lives. We actually saw a butterfly laying eggs and all the stages of a butterflies life can be seen here...egg, caterpillar, pupa (or chrysalis), adult emerging from chrysalis, and the butterfly itself. I will be posting pics soon.
