This was included on our Country side tour. The place is cool. Tourist will be accompanied by a tour guide and we are lucky that we have Kuya Rey. Sobrang patawa but he was able to deliver the info to us nicely. Good Job

We were divided into two groups since there were 47 of us. As they were butterflies, pleasing to the eyes and nothing else (to me, at least), the tour guides that we had were very jolly and made our group laugh a lot while they explained. One of our bosses tried holding a caterpillar. A few of my teammates got... More

This sanctuary though not big but it gave a lot of information about metamorphosis of butterflies. There's a minimal fee for this visit. Candijay is close to Anda and about few towns away to Jagna. We had it planned so that all the other attractions could be visited. It was a nice experience. We took pictures of butterflies.

Enjoyed the tour so much ,in the company of a young guide. He was relaxed and funny ,and is an excellent photographer. We have some unusual butterfly photos to take home. We did not see many butterflies ,but those we did were big and beautiful. We took some gifts home from the shop.

After visiting the Loboc (Green) River Floating Restaurant Luncheon Tour, we visited this unique site to see how butterflies and moths come into existence. We (the 8 of us) were all surprised as to the short existence that they lived. This is a must see for young and old alike as you get to see the various sizes of cocoons... More
