  • Spent two hours in this park. It takes 30 minutes by taxi to reach from downtown Paramaribo. Very interesting. Spoken languages: Dutch, English (at least). This farm is specialized in the breeding of butterflies in order to provide the pupae to zoos in Europe and North America. Incidentally, she is also a boa constrictor and a variety of turtles. The life cycle of the butterfly is explained and the visitor can walk in green spacious spaces in which different varieties of butterflies fly in peace. This park also contains a panorama showing the different types of biotopes of the Surinamese forest and an exhibition of local insects (dead under ice). It is possible to buy on the spot to drink.
