If you're on the lookout for somewhere a little different to visit, The Butterfly Farm could be just what the doctor ordered. 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.
