Although I'm not a fan of butterflies, it's very enjoyable to come here. You will learn a lot about butterflies and will have the opportunity to hold one and some caterpillars too. Kudos to the guides because they are funny and will engage their visitors to listen. I laughed out loud whenever I remember them talk. They know camera tricks... More

The trip was educational enough for me learning about butterflies and moths. I was expecting to see a ton of butterflies but since it was Labor Day when we went we only see a few. Most of the butterflies were on vacation. They too need a Labor Day break, hehe.... Well, yes.... There weren't as many butterflies as I expected.... More

The place is not spacious but it was tidy and employees here are friendly. Our visit was also educational as the guide was also knowledgable about butterflies. The butterfly population here is not much, but their count as of the time we visited there make do. There are beautiful species of butterflies here, you can even touch them but be... More

usually i like the butterfly sanctuaries, but this one was lacking in both butterflies and excitement. if you are close by or have kids, it may be worth a stop, otherwise i'd recommend skipping this. i think we were there a total of 15 minutes.

part of the countryside tour. Different stages of butterfly life cycle were discussed. My kids were allowed to touch butterflies and played with them. Pictures were taken when we were supposed to fly with butterfly wings

Our guide was hilarious and informative and there's a part of the tour where you get your own butterfly wings on photo...it's a clever little trick and one that made us laugh. There weren't so many butterflies when we were there, but those that were, were lovely, and the guide encourages them to come and perch on you so there's... More

It started of very nice with a guide who talked to us about catterpillars, but then he seemed to be running out of information. In the garden he showed us a few butterflies from wich 2 with broken wings, they where sick he said. I think in 15 minutes we where outside again

very few , but bring a video cam just in case these B land on your nose or palm. the home made ice cream outside taste great- try the guyabano /durian/mango- so tasty so home made for P35 each- but quite small stick.
