Go See The Butterfly Farm In St. Maarten
There aren’t many creatures on earth that can boast the amount of beauty, transformation, and mystery that a butterfly can.
Butterflies never fail to captivate their audience, young or old, and with very good reason!
Other than their unwavering beauty, there is so much more to learn about these gorgeous magical creatures!
And on the island of St. Martin, the French side to be exact, is a hidden gem where you can do that and so much more…
The Butterfly Farm located on the road to the best family beach “Le Gallion“, is the stop to make on your next visit to Sint Maarten!
They will show you the different pupas for the different species, explaining how long they incubate and how long they will live once they emerge as a butterfly.
They will give you tips for when you go home, so that you can have a butterfly attracting yard/balcony right at your fingertips!
Ever witnessed the magic of seeing a butterfly emerge from its pupa, and taking its very first flight? Be sure to come in the morning hours and you might be able to see this spectacular process!
Wear bright colors and the butterflies will flutter around you as if you were the prettiest flower they’ve ever seen.
Wear a citrus cologne or sunscreen (after all, we are in the Caribbean!), and they will not just flutter, but also land on you!
You’ll be sure to feel like a prince or princess in a fairy tale!
