Explore the beautiful colors of the Saint Martin butterflies and plants at this unique and magical attraction. You will find the enclosed area full of caterpillars, cocoons, and butterflies of all sizes.

The farm is set in an enclosed exhibition of tropical gardens filled with local flora and natural landscaping that includes ponds and rest areas. Hundreds of tropical butterflies fly freely around you.
