  • Butterflies are beautiful.. .the little garden... but I think the most remarkable curiosity... are the couple of "catbears" strange Animal... little known who lives to Palawan. When the tribal village... It's for tourists

  • Yepp, nice place and interesting to see so many butterflys. But most interesting to see natives and try to understand a little of ther culture. Nice yes 
  • The Palaw'an tribe was the highlight of this destination. I would have loved to see more and learn more of their way of life.
