Every year when we go to St. Martin we hear people bring up the butterfly farm. I’d always wanted to go, but so far, we hadn’t gotten there. This year, I decided it was time to see the butterfly farm!
My parents said they would come too, so we left the hotel in the morning, since the farm closes around mid-afternoon. Driving to the farm was also a nice chance to get views of some beautiful scenery and see different places on the island we don’t normally always get to.
When you arrive at the farm, there is an adorable house, which contains the farm’s gift shop; after you walk through the curtains in the gift shop, you enter the farm, a relatively tiny, yet beautifully enclosed area where the butterflies are located.
I decided it might be neat to get a photo with one of the butterflies on my hat, so the tour guide was nice enough to place a beautiful green one there. Then he added, “I have an idea if you want the coolest picture ever.” Although it took a few tries, with his net, he took the biggest butterfly I have ever seen and placed it on my hat; it definitely was a neat photo op!
If you’ve never been to a butterfly farm, I’d definitely recommend going at least once, as it was such a nice feeling to be surrounded by such beauty. Even the greenery surrounding the farm was nice to look at.
So who else has been to a butterfly farm or has/is going to add this item on their bucket lists? I’d love to hear about your experiences!
