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

A small and quick attraction, the sanctuary shows the stages of a butterfly from beginning to end, with live examples of each. When you reach the final butterfly stage, you find yourself inside an enclosed sanctuary full of butterflies you can interact with. Great for kids, cheap entry (about $2), and only takes about 10 minutes to see everything.

You get a free guide as part of entrance fee, whom can tell you interesting things about the animal life. Very cool place. BRING YOUR CAMERA
