We went to the Butterfly Sanctuary in Camp John Hay on the fourth day of our 4D/3N Baguio stay in January 2014. During our stay, we went to Mines View Park, Good Shepherd, Strawberry Farm, Easter Weaving Room, BenCab Museum, Lion’s Head, PMA, Botanical Garden, The Mansion, Burnham Park, Camp John Hay, and Baguio Public Market.

The P50 entrance fee is soo not worth it. This place is not even worth visiting! The garden was very small with very few butterflies. There was even an area for cut wilting flowers in vases with dead butterflies on top. It's a pathetic place. Not worth the time.

Expected to enjoy the view & learn about butterflies, unfortunately the guide is more focused on "picture" taking (just for facebook purposes which is lame & a bummer). Not worth it. I feel bad for the butterflies.

My friend and I were skeptical at first to visit the butterfly farm because we might not get our P40 worth since we were traveling on budget. But upon meeting the butterfly caretaker whom we missed to ask for his name, the first 10 minutes was already entertaining and educational. He explained to us the lifespan of a butterfly and...

when we visited the facility, most of the poor butterflies have broken wings. Perhaps from too much taking of pictures. the "kuya" there will be happily and carefully catch a butterfly or two for that cute wacky photo ops with those lovely winged creatures.

Area was accessible but very few species of butterflies were seen at the time we visited. Quite disappointed.

The location itself is spectacular,, the entrance specially the bridge part.. but.. it's disappointing. There were a lot of butterflies hanging on the withering plants and flowers, most of them are dead. I am not sure why, but the caretaker is hunting down butterflies so he could get some live ones to stick somewhere in your hand, face, head, etc.... More

Quite frustrating, not even 1 single butterfly was seen here. Area was undergoing renovation which was understandable, but they should have at least put out a sign saying so. What a waste of time and effort, totally infuriating.
