“Don't bother!”
Reviewed July 18, 2015

Waste of time! Luckily the entrance fee was only 20-25 pesos. This was part of a bigger tour. I saw more butterflies on a hike in the PH than I did in this sanctuary. You have a guide that walks you through the sanctuary educating you with info that's only half accurate. As you walk through the place the guide shakes the nets so that the butterflies start flying, which I don't think is good for the stress level of the butterflies.

Save your pesos for a buko water or a san miguel and take a nap in the tour bus when it stops off there.

“Good fun!”
Reviewed July 1, 2015 via mobile

It's a very pretty place but the young man who does the tour is the real attraction here. He made the lack of butterflies kind of insignificant really. He made jokes about them being lazy and needing to "get to work, we have customers". There are butterflies, don't get me wrong, and the place is very pretty. Well worth stopping!

“Where have all the butterflies gone?”
Reviewed April 1, 2015 via mobile

Boring! Decrepit and little to see. The butterflies was missing. Need to be refurbished and maybe use more film and some interactive installations!

“Worth it if you're passing by”
Reviewed March 8, 2015

Most day tours take this in and it is worth it if your passing by.

They give you plenty of information and you get to see some very beautiful moths and butterflies.

You can also pose for the silliest of pictures ever.
