Nothing creepy. Just fascinating! 400 years old is an awesome age for a living thing on planet earth. I hope the locals in the area that charge P5 entrance fee is really keeping the place clean and neat.

You can tell who needs a pedicure in your family by how the fish react. Once you get past the tickle, there is something really cool about letting the little guys nibble while you soak up the good vibes of the Enchanted Balete tree.

This stop on our motorbike trip around the island was nice Pretty much it's and old tree and fish spa If you enjoy getting your dead skin eaten by fish please stop here. You have to pay 5-10php each to enter and can stay as long as you want. Suggest renting a motorbike and stopping here, caves, and waterfalls
