Butterfly Farm

One of our last SXM activities was a visit to the butterfly farm. It was surprisingly nice, lots of butterflies, a little system of koi ponds, tranquil music. Most of their business comes from vanloads of cruise ship passengers.

They give you a little cup of fruit punch, with or without rum, and you can dip your fingers in it and the butterflies will land on your hand and drink the juice off your finger. Once they’ve settled in to a meal, they are quite willing to let you walk around with them… one man in the little tour group finally asked a staff member to get a butterfly off him, since didn’t want to touch the wings.

Obviously I took a lot of pictures…
