Aruba Ostrich Adventures

If the thought of passing some time with interesting animals sounds like fun, you should visit The Butterfly Farm. After the first Butterfly Farm in St. Martin experienced such great success, one of the owners, William Slayter decided to take the concept to the island of Aruba. This Butterfly Farm, co-owned by Tony and Lori Cox, has been open since May of 1999, and remains popular thanks in part to the beauty and majesty of the butterfly, and also in part to William's quirky sense of humor.

A second related venue is Aruba Ostrich Adventures. If you're traveling here from the high rise hotels, take the A1 towards Oranjestad and take a left at the first traffic circle. Go straight through two more traffic circles, and turn left when you reach the fourth.
