The butterfly sanctuary was a nice moment of our adventure tour. We could see plenty of butterflies. Man in charge of the greenhouse was really friendly, and has a really beautiful girl who wanted to be our guide ;)

We were on a bicycling tour that brought us to this special place. It had so much to offer--but the best part was the 200% effort by the staff and owners to make this a enjoyable experience. Our guide was wonderful--informative, funny, and got us interactive with the butterflies. He took photos of all us with butterflies on our noses.... More

We had a lovely time looking around this small butterfly sanctuary. The owner is so friendly and passionate about the conservation of butterflies and their habitat. Very enjoyable!

I've read the previous reviews hoping to shed some new light on this wonderful experience, but alas it seems that everyone else has found even better ways to encourage your visit than I could!! Still, I wanted to add yet another "excellent" because this place is SO worth knowing about and supporting. If you care about beautiful creatures in our... More

Very small but beautiful place full of all kinds of butterflies from the Philippines. The owners are very nice and it is run on donations only. It is at a very nice families house in the mountains of Siquijor. Check it out it's a nice little journey with nice views in the mountains.

I had a visit at the butterfly garden which is run but a lovely guy and his family. Unfortunately I wasn't in the position to donate some money but I hope that more people will visit and have some cash with them to support this project which is still a working in progress.

We went with my family. We bring the kids to so they will know more about the butterflies. We did enjoy this place. The caretaker told us brief about the butterfly. But the one the attracts me most was the huge butterfly who can fit on my two hands. He said it only live for 21 days and we are... More

I have never seen such large butterflies! This is an absolute must-see. Save your money by not going with an organized trip with a resort. Much more fun to hire a motorbike driver and explore at your own pace.
