  • Nice place with nice animals. You can enjoy it for only 50 pesos. It was great!
  • Always love butterfly gardens and this one was good. The tribal village was very nice as well. I happily bought some needed gifts and souvenirs. The caged animals were not attractive and really took away from the experience, even if they were 'rescued' , otherwise five stars.
  • We absolutely loved this place! Good for grown ups as well. Besides the butterflies and Tribal experience (their handicrafts are highly recommended as souvenirs as they are both authentic and support directly the Tribal people) there are also "petting" exhibits of giant millipede, stick insect, specially bred Gecko and even a giant Indonesian scorpion!
  • Butterflies, insects and animals are very interesting. In the tribal village I got to have a large snake wrapped around me.
  • I love the place because you can interact with nature. This place is good for toddlers or even young at heart. They have a special place for Palaw'an, a native of Province of Palawan. Visitor's can take a peek of their humble lifetyle.
