  • Butterflies, there are quite a few here and they are beautiful also the State bird of the island (Palawan cocktail pheasant) and some creepy crawlies Moreover, next to it. The "village" of Palawan tribe is more a tourist rip-off, little inspirational show with weary players, you can save yourself.

  • Good to visit. There is a variety of animals that you can see. You can better understand the life of the butterflies. The cultural exchange of the tribal people is worth your time. You will appreciate the tribal groups life and culture. You can also hold and take a picture with their "pet" snake. Since it's part of the city tour just enjoy and learn something new.
  • Here we saw animals and insects native to Palawan. We got to hold some of them. There is a local tribe there and a "cultural" area where they play their musical instruments and share their history with you. Staff was knowledgeable and friendly.
  • The place is great with all the pretty butterflies. I was surprised that there was also a salt crocodile inside in a cage. And inside the butterfly farm, we were also surprise that there is a tribe, they will show you their talents such as play music, how to make fire, hunting skills, and many more.
  • Its a very small place but very pleasant:) A nice butterfly garden with a super friendly gardener who told us some differences between males and females and how is born a butterfly. They receive some tribes who show us how they live and some of their traditions. Very interesting. I would go back!!
  • It was an informative visit as we get to know more about Palawan's trival village and its people. We were also able to see the different stages of butterfly's life
