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!!!

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.

This is probably not for everyone..However if you want to support the protection of the butterfly it is worth the hour trip up the mountain and hour back down but may be worth planning to go somewhere else. It's not that easy to find as...More

We hired a bike and planned to go up the mountain. I had seen the butterfly garden as one of the things to do in Siquijor but had read that it was difficult to find (which it isn't really) as I just so happened to...More
