    Butterfly farm & snorkling

    http://www.thebutterflyfarm.com/ here is the link to the butterfly farm.
    the cost is $15 and is not listed on their website
    the admission ticket though, does allow for you to come back as often as you want to visit again during your vacation.
    it is approximately a mile and a half from the tamarijn.
    it is on the bus route so very easy!

    bus site www.arubus.com

    snorkeling at the tamarijn is poor.
    our experiences there, some fish now and again.
    but not worth it imo
    no reef, all sand.

    a good snorkeling spot would be about 3 or 4 /+ miles north, at malmok, catalina cove.

    again, on the bus route.
    (sandy and wet not allowed on the bus, so drying and brushing off is necessary)

    We have tried snorkeling at the Tamarijn twice and as Andrea said, there is not much to see. If anything it is just a way to pass the time. The best of anything we have seen



    Here is more info on snorkeling from the beach and Boca Catalina

    As well as taking the bus from the low rise resorts like the Tamarijn
    Bus from Low Rise to Malmok Beach/Catalina Cove for Snorkeling?

    Thanks Lisa, I am not a snorkeler by any means, just bought a mask/snorkel while in Curacao last year and thought I would take it with me just to check and give me something to do.
