The Butterfly Farm (La Ferme des Papillons), Quartier D'Orleans

4.5
#4 of 21 in Wildlife in Saint-Martin
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.

  • Loved it! We ended up going to St. Martin on our recent Disney Cruise after our port in Tortola was canceled due to flooding. There was some kind of French holiday going on where half the island was shut down, but Holly and family came in and opened the Butterfly Farm. It was very beautiful with a lot of interesting information. A good variety of butterflies in various stages. Really enjoyed it!
  • Outstanding tour with great explanations and stories. garden is wonderful by itself but you should aim for the early morning or late afternoon. At lunch it is very humid (for the butterflies). Entrance fee is 14 euro p.p. but you can revisit as much as you like during your stay here. So save your ticket! Gift shop is filled with fun pretty and cool stuff to take back.
  • The best experience!!!! Friendly people beautiful butterflies a must see attraction
  • Don't take a cruise ship excursion. Take a cab and spend time there. Very informative​, friendly people, and very peaceful. I also pray that the hurricane Irma did not take them out. Hope everyone is safe.
  • Great time! The kids loved it!
