They said this is the oldest Balete tree in the country. Yes, it is really enchanting and very beautiful. You can also try and enjoy their free fish spa.

Nothing much to see except this Balete Tree. We stayed for around 30 mins, enjoying our natural foot spa - fish foot spa. :)

The tree is interesting and best viewed while having the dead skin nibbled off your feet by the little fish in the pond at its roots. :-)

For a 5 pesos entrance and a small donation, you can take pics around the Balete tree and try the Fish Spa .

Not only is this tree a sight to behold, but you can also chill out and let doctor fishes bite your dead skin cells in what they call a fish spa below this tree. If I were staying overnight (we were only in Siquijor for a day tour), I would stay here for longer than an hour.

One of the must-sees in Siquijor complete with a fish-spa and coconuts for sale. The tree is really something and although the locals capitalise on its popularity, the place is far from overcrowded and ruined.

If you love trees, old things and folklore, drop by the Balete Tree! The place is just an open space, with a cement pool built around the spring at the foot of the tree. You can tell the tree is very old and has a mystical feel. It's enchanted because of the spring that flows through its roots, a spring... More

Perhaps it's too hyped up but when you get there and pay for the 5 peso entrance fee you kinda feel weird already. It's a tree with vine.
