If you arrive early in the morning when the butterflies first break out of their chrysalis, you'll be able to marvel at the absolute wonder of dozens of butterflies and moths from around the world and the particular host plants with which each evolved. At any given time, some 40 species of butterflies—numbering as many as 600 individual insects—flutter inside the lush screened garden and hatch on the plants housed there. Butterfly art and knickknacks are for sale in
the gift shop. In case you want to come back, your ticket, which includes a guided tour, is good for your entire stay.

I visited the Butterfly Farm on a short stop during a 10 day cruise.It had just rained so although a bit wet the Farm was a breath of fresh air! The assorted butterflys and caterpillars were very interesting. My 11 year old was fascinated.What most people may be unaware of is that this farm was all but wiped out a couple of years ago by a hurricane that lasted a couple of days and did heavy damage to the area.These people had to buy all new butterflys
to replenish what they had.Since tourism is their only means of making a living,we tourists would do well to pay the extra cost and drop some more money on the souviniers.It basically goes back to the butterflys which is a passion for this family struggling to build what little they had back up.Give generously,it's for a good cause! I'll go back if I can in the future! Great photo ops so bring alot of film ,the butterflys aren't posers!:)You have to chase them around[carefully of course:)
