Near the top of the hill this place is easy to miss but it is well worth searching for. The owner has a beautiful hidden garden full of amazing butterflies and a passion to reintroduce them back into the environment. Great experience!!!

For a 100/head entrance fee, I believe this sanctuary does not have a sufficient number of butterflies in it. I was expecting beautifully colored butterflies but got to see a number of them with almost the same color.

It is small but is delicately and caringly preserved. Definitely worth stopping in and spend a bit of time here on your way to the park.

100peso entrance but worth it. Around 10 different species and not that big but the owner was saving to expand to a second garden. Great to combine with an island tour. We went to Cambugahay falls afterwards which was amazing!
