Siquijor Butterfly Sanctuary, Siquijor Island

(3.5/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
Observe and inspect a variety of colorful butterflies and dragonflies at Siquijor Butterfly Sanctuary. The ecologically minded facility raises species collected from the immediate area, Asia, and the rest of the world, with a view to release them into the wild. Here you can see each stage of this creature's fascinating life cycle, from vibrant and alien looking caterpillars, through a range of pupae, to the final majestic finished product (including the huge Attacus Atlas moth). You can buy moderately priced snacks and refreshments on site, with a small donation required for entry. Siquijor Butterfly Sanctuary is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Siquijor Island Edition.
